Just ordered my RMM and bolt through Park, finally.

Steeda short shifter gets installed today, too. I plan on removing the intake silencer while I'm at it.

Make sure you have some lube for the ball on the Steeda and lube it up profusely...

Yep! Have a big tube of lithium grease ready to go.

Ok so even with all the bullshit going on with my focus with the steering wander TSB, I am having my mechanic install the MS3 RMM tomorrow.

question though...It may be a total noob question...but which is the part of the motor mount which touches the engine? One side of the mount has a lip around it. Does this touch the engine or the frame? Is there only one way the motor mount will fit?

The curved part point towards engine (up).

so the lip part (flat side) is facing the bottom of the car? It is hard to tell from the orientation of your picture

If you look at the MS3 mount in the left, it's oriented just like it'd be in the car, flat side down. The bracket part curves up to meet the engine. Make sense?

What bolt did you use? Did you have any play between the bolt and the mount?
