Yes....specially if your OEM one is broken. Might as well change it for a quality proven piece.

Peace...

I installed my VF mount today. I went to the dealer to get it installed for just $20.00. Nice price for someone who does not have the space or garage. I was told that its not going to void any warranty.

For the experience, I'm very happy with the product. I can definitely feel more vibrations below 1k rpm. Its not that bad at all. After I get my SCT, my idle is obviously going to be raise above 1k rpm so it will not be an issue at all.

You can feel the engine rumbling more which is kind of nice. The shifts do not "bang" anymore.

^^^^Yep. Much better.^^^^
Since the engine is so much "tighter" (doesn't torque over nearly as much),
more power is getting to where it needs to go.
It's a very noticable difference.

Did you notice that the bolts are on a bit tight (the 2 bolts on the bracket not the 2 bolts on the mount? I can't seem to get them loose any ideas?

Wow. This sounds awesome. How much did you all pay for this, after shipping? I'm really really interested in this now! Thanks in advance.

I got mine from Focus Sport...I think it was something like $114 w/shipping. Worth every penny IMO, and had I known how to install it on a non-SVTF ahead of time it wouldn't have taken as much work to install as I put into it.
