Woooo! Got my engine mounts installed! It took about 1.5 hrs including clean up and spending 20min running to the parts store for threadlock.
The vibration is worst at idle: the steering wheel shakes and you can feel it through the floorboard. Once you start driving though it gets a lot less noticeable. Minimal vibration through the steering wheel, I can still feel it in the floorboard, and I can definitely feel it in the gas pedal.
But holy crap I should have done this a long time ago! There's no engine movement when hitting the gas, releasing the gas, or clutching. Very smooth and consistent shifting. Feels amazing! Much more fun to drive
PICS!
