Increased mount to frame connections means engine harmonicas get into the frame/chassis. Your lower mount should do this also, they all do.

honestly I would not touch the top motor mount as it will make the car louder and harsher. I would just do a RMM. I will be doing E focus RMM I hear good things about it.

Reduce wheel hop, increase throttle response, more firm shifts.

Very popular mod.

Jordan post some impressions. I think I might need to upgrade from E-RMM if I am to try and reach my goal of 14's as the car still wheel hops on hard launch at the strip.
