I used old bolt just put locktite on it the OEM one comes with it on already that's why they say replace it faster to assemble cars that way. Oh I didn't put locktite on mine and hasn't fallen out yet.

Hey man thx for the write up, very good job! I just installed mine today and there is some extra vibration but it feels much better and stiffer during shifts. I have a question tho. I was not able to get a torque wrench in there to torque on 2 of the bolts for the bracket that mounts on to the transmission. I just kinda guessed how much it was torqued down. Were you able to get a torque wrench up in there to torque thoes bolts down?

Installed the E-Focus RMM this morning. Just a spin around the block, but i don't feel any extra vibrations!

NOTE: I found it easier to attach the bracket and motor mount prior to installing the RMM and tightening it all down.

I installed the e-rmm on my car yesterday. Put about 50km of driving in. And I can feel a big difference in performance. She feels stronger. I feel the mount help with the mods I've done to the car already. So if anyone is on the fence about doing it, just do it! Its for the good of the world!

Would it be better to get the electirc focus motor mount compared to the COBB one? they are pretty similar in price.

The Cobb mount is close to three or four times as much, on what world is that similar in price?

http://www.cobbtuning.com/Ford-Focus...t-p/891001.htm

The MSRP of the E-Focus RMM is $68.43, and from Autonation Ford White Bear Lake it was just $45.17 v.s. 159.00 for the Cobb rmm.

Plus the Cobb mount will increase NVH much more than the E-Focus mount due to the higher durometer.
