A lot of people that will rep you won't have the minimum number of posts for it to qualify. Most of the people that have the minimum number of posts are senior enough to know how these mods have been done. Trust me, it's not an overnight thing. I don't even know how many how-to's that I've done, coupled with the number of posts that I've made, and you see where I'm at. Give it time and keep contributing to the community and it will come.

I rep'd you. This write-up needed to be done to show some members how simple of a mod this is. Good job.

Great write-up! I think the pictures do help visualize how easy it is to change. I replaced mine with the Focus Electric RMM a couple weeks ago - it was definitely worth it.

Thanks for the write-up! Good to have step by step process (even though it looks simple) and clear pictures.

Was there an increase in vibrations after installing the new mount?

Nice write up, I'm planning on buying the E-Focus RMM (so much cheaper!) when I get my 2014.

There is a noticeable increase in idle and lower RPMS but the vibrations in no way would make me think about going back to stock!

After my failed attempt to install the CP-E stage 2 RMM. I ordered the cobb because you proved it fits.

Does this effect the lurch felt when coming on/off throttle&clutch at low speed?
