Would there be any noticeable differences with the DCT besides just more vibration? Cleaner shifts! Anyone have one installed on DCT?

So, I ended up picking up a used TTR Mount from someone and he said it had about 3l miles on it. Installed it today and it was, thankfully, a nice and easy install. I did not torque the bolts as my wrench wouldn't fit and I didn't have an extension handy but I just did a bit more than hand tight. I was aware and very much expecting some vibrations but I thought since the mount was broken in it wouldn't be so much and it was a lot.

TTR:
Why does the mount need a break in time and because it was off a car for a good two months did the break in that was originally on it get reset?

Its not a big deal and I assume most of this vibration will go away but I was just surprised it was like a new mount since it has 3k miles on it lol

No it didnt get reset. My guess is it is broken in, and customer to customer acceptance to vibs are different. There is not a "meter" that tells you what the vibs are.

Keep in mind, if you have no/zero vibs, you would be no better off controlling movement over stock. You HAVE to firm it up to reduce movement in the mount.

Plus when it is sub zero temps, there are move vibs than when it is above freezing... The mount bushing does get harder/stiffer when it is cold.

Well, most people in this topic said after a few thousand miles the vibes die down until they're practically un noticeable and the reason why I asked is because, even on my little drive I noticed them start to go away a little.

It isn't sub zero in Jersey today (30 I think) so I don't think that had too much affect on it... Maybe it just needs a little more break in time would be my guess lol

32 is freezing :), less means sub zero to me... Below freezing.

Give it time maybe there wasn't as many miles on it as stated.
