It may not be as noticeable to some, but that depends more on how much a person is in tune with their vehicle. I noticed what I considered a drastic change when I installed mine. That being said, I wouldn't mind one that was a bit stiffer...

I have the DCT and to me it just feels like the car shifts quicker and smoother.

Didn't know you went that way Man... ROFL

I noticed a difference right away but that also had something to do with the Steeda STS. But overall it's a huge step forward and does a great job keeping things in check. I am probably one of the few that could handle even more...

That's where the MS3 mount shines... There are so many aftermarket companies that make inserts for it, you can fine tune it to your liking.

Talking

The RMM is in and test driven. I did this right after driving the car home so it was hot and that was, well, not the brightest move I've ever made. The mount is a must if you have a STS. Kudos to FocusBoy for the path forged to modding the MK3. Now for the rear sway bar and tune.............

I just joined the MS3 RMM club and I must say, the difference is night and day! I filled mine with 3M Window Weld and the thing is just awesome. And 0 vibration!

Been running my MS3 RMM with CS inserst for about 5,000 miles now. There is definitely an improvement over stock, however, I still feel like there is a decent amount of drivetrain slop in this car.

I mentioned this in another thread... but on my last car (MS6) when I removed the RMM, it took another guy and all of his strength to move the engine into place to line up the bolt. However, when I removed the RMM from the focus, the damn engine swung back and forth like a pendulum.

This leads me to believe more success can be hand with the other two engine mounts. Mostly in the TMM.... my concern is obviously vibration.

So I thought of another approach. I believe it was focus boy who reported an un-desirable amount of vibrations just from a 70 duro RMM. I'm fairly certain the main culprit behind this is the ~650 idle rpms. Once tuning is available for this platform, we will be able to bump our idle rpms to 800. This will reduce a substantial amount of vibes during idle and I think will allow us to be able to run a higher duro mount with out the side effects of vibes.

This might actually be a better solution over replacing the TMM at this time. I have a few locals with MS3 with aftermarket mounts. I might see if I can get one of them let me try their mount.

If I can get my hands on one, I'll run a little test. Since the update, if you put the car in gear with out your foot on the brake, the rpms will raise to around 850. This will give me a pretty good idea of what the mount would feel like if we were able to raise the idle with a tuning solution.
