I am guessing it is all relative. I put a cosworth intake manifold on my car by myself....I cant imagine it being anymore difficult than that!

I"m not sure on the specifics, but can't I just put a jack under it or the area it needs to align with and line it up with the ass kicking power of hydraulic jack glory?

No need to, as you can rock the motor easily w/ one hand & start the bolts w/ the other.

Driver side & dogbone vf engineering mounts

Save your money and just do bushings on the dogbone. If your other mounts are still OK start with that and work your way up a mount at a time
So the pass side pushed you over the edge for rattling & vibs vs just the vf engineering trans mount & dogbone? I need to replace the reverse switch, so nows a good time to upgrade to the trans mount. So adding the trans mount makes a difference Paul?

Dog bone felt good, adding the trans felt even better, passenger side with all that turned the car into a vibrating, rattling mess. I think the stock fluid filled passenger side mount helps a lot. Car felt really great with all three in but after a while it wore me out lol. Still felt really connected/ solid with just two mounts so I didn't really miss it.

If you want a lot of vibration and rattle go with all 3 poly for better tq performance. If you want it with looks spend the little extra and get the ones already with plus they're slightly lighter. I'm happy with the dogbone.
