that is the start of why taking OFF the stock part matters for performance (if you have a free flow aftermarket air filter) and yes it makes a difference IMO.
Then my post:http://www.focusfanatics.com/forum/showthread.php?t=335585

The snorkle delete is great. The ST part is only candy, but still nice. (and cheap: under $5)
This thread is about rmm's can you guys stay on topic please?

I gave up looking for an opportunity to post, so here it is. My grand daughter had a 2005 Focus that lost the alternator. The book says drop a motormount and pry the engine away from the firewall to get the alternator off a stud. I found the stud has a nice 1/4" hex and comes out with a ratchet to drop the alternator, saving lots of work. You're welcome Keith Williams

Can anyone tell me if you had noticeable vibration difference at idle after an aftermarket rear motor mount?

Generally I've heard people complain about anything over the E-RMM.

Yes, and I have the e Focus. It's annoying, but only at idle is it annoying. I still love the mod though for how it cleans up the clutch feel.

Mechanic buddy of mine who works for a Ford dealer hooked me up with his discount for the e-Focus mount (#CM5Z-6068-A). Mind you, I'm in Canada and ordering from the States is expensive right now... So I got the part for $50 (as opposed to $90 taxes included at regular price) and paid my buddy $50 since I don'have the tools necessary to keep this as a hassle free 10 minute job (and he's my friend).

I immediately noticed less engine movement driving off the lot. I couldn't drive the car hard to really tell how it performs since there is about 5-6 inches of snow on the road. But the difference between the drive there and the drive back was definitely "night and day" as many say.

When I bought the part, he asked why I was getting it. I told him the reason, and he also made a comment on how the e-Focus mount appears to be much more solid than the stock Focus and so I should expect less movement.

I hope things stay this way!

I did this mod on my 2012, and now that the car is totaled I plan on doing it to my 2014 as well. I enjoyed the improved driving experience and only noticed vibrations at idle when it was cold.

Can somebody tell me the torque specs again? I know they're in this thread somewhere but I'm already tired of scanning for it. Since I recently forked out the money for the wrench, I might as well use it and get it correct.

Could you detail exactly the changes you're seeing? How do you notice less engine movement with the DCT? I installed the e mount a week ago and have noticed no change in the power train performance.

I can understand a night and day situation with a manual since the shifts are relatively slow leaving lots of time for engine movement. But the lightning quick shifts from the DCT leaves virtually no time for engine movement doesn't it?

Needless to say I was skeptical going into it but given the low expense decided to give it a chance. I was disappointed.
