to add to this point... have any of you NA guys ever grabbed your engine and rocked it back and forth and watched the flex in the PMM? You can literally see the deflection in the rubber as you're pulling it by hand.

The rmm is still a huge must on my to do list. I'm on the fence about the side mount. I don't think I'll really need something like that unless I were to go beyond what I have right now.

Just installed my focus electric rear motor mount. As soon as I left my driveway, I noticed the difference. More of the engines power is making to the ground and when the DCT shifts, it is a lot more direct in a way because the engine is not rocking back and forth like it was with the stock mount. I highly recommend this mount, especially for the price.

As for vibration in the cabin, none that I can feel. This mount is total win.

^DITTO!

Just put the E- Focus RMM in my car this afternoon. I could tell the difference in the first three shifts! (5-speed) Amazing difference!!
Without a doubt more power getting to the wheels quicker. I notice a bit of vibration in the steering column at idle, but thinking that will dissipate once broken in. (The difference is so awesome the slight vibration is worth it)!

Are these instructions more or less good for doing the e-Focus mount?

I have to imagine it's pretty straight forward...but figured I'd make sure. What should everything be torqued to?

I used no instructions. Just put the car up and started removing bolts on the RMM. Ran into a snag - watched 3 min YouTube video of RMM change on the Focus ST; this made me realize I had missed one bolt. Removed that, and all was well. I torqued the bolts to what my arm felt was the same they were when I broke them loose (as I do not have a torque wrench).

I got hung up on the same bolt. It is the one above the bracket connected to the transmission. Could not see it at first and was scratching my head for a little bit until I found it. Best 50 bucks spent.

My only worry is the engine would drop or something? Is this an issue? I have a ramp I use for changing my oil I assume this is good enough.. Are there any extra tricks to it or just lift, unbolt and throw the new one in its place? I didn't think it would be that simple.
