Question Why to add Mazda Speed 3 motor mount

Hi everyone!

I've been reading that some of you upgraded the ford motor mount for a mazda speed 2 motor mount on the MK3 focus.

My question is ... why to do this? any major improvement after that mod?

To stiffen up the motor so it won't sway back and forth during hard acceleration.

So for a normal city driving... does it worth? ... how much it cost?

There is a video of the Cobb motor mount in the MK3 ST performance section that shows why a stiffer RMM is paramount. Stock Ford RMM fail.

I did this on monday actually. Very noticable improvement, but the shifts got a little rougher and I have to rev it a bit more to keep it from bogging down. Haven't stalled it, but it seems it'd be easier for it to happen now.
