Rear motor mount installation

I just received my Central Florida Motorsports lower engine mount for 2012+ Focus/st I've heard it's just a focus electric mount but I digress. Is the removal process the same on our motors as depicted in this video for a st?

Yes for the most part. The base foci are actually easier since there is no downpipe support bracket.

Red lock loctite on the factory bolt? I look forward to feeling the difference.

I'm sorry, I don't understand your question? Are you asking if red loctite should be used on both bolts.

Yes I am. Do you need red loctite on both bolts, and if not then which bolt

I used red on the one into the frame, and blue on the one in the trans bracket. Red probably isn't necessary on the one, but it had it on the factory bolt so I applied a very small amount going back in.

The mount itself utilizes a single through bolt design. I will place red loctite on the threads of that bolt. The others will probably just get retorqued. What's the tq rating on the bolts by the way? Last autozone/advanced auto trips I made they didn't have Haynes manuals on these cars yet.
