StreetUnit MS3 RMM Mount

Got this installed today, here is my initial review:

Install...too easy

The vibes...it is there, especially if you dont "slip" from a take off above 1000rpms...after that its smooth sailing. With AC on it is more noticeable

The shifts are way more precise. I dont know if you guys had this with the stock mount or not but 1-2-3 shifts kind felt like it lugged/jerked a little from the mushy mount

With the SU RMM, all the shift are butter smooth engagement...the engine "responds" way better due to taking out the slack..it shifts as direct as my Mustang did with a TriAx shifter

We will see how the vibes get with some miles on the car. Honestly...anything above 60 Duro would be an overkill on this engine

Any improvement from the OEM mount is a MUST

Where'd you get it from? Can I install myself without a lift?

I rember installing my tranny mount on my 05' and just jacked up the front end. Shouldn't be too hard of an install since it's in the same location.

Very easy to install..no need for lift or anything. I did it on a drive up ramp

It is a tiiight fit between the chassis and this mount...you'll have to hammer it in.

Suggestion as well, dont "eye" the center mounting bolt hole....I made the mistake to eye it to the center...bolted everything up...the center bolt wouldnt start...so had to dismantle everything and start the center hole first...than move your way up to the mount that actually mounts to the engine

The shifts are just unbelievably wonderful now...its awesome...no more slack/lugging action from the drivetrain
