Need installation tips for FSWerks motor mount insert

So I got the motor mount insert in the mail the other day but need some installation tips/a guide from anyone that has done it... I have a lift available so keep that in mind, but just want tips on making the process as smooth as possible. Thanks!

When i was installing my FSwerks Race RMM, i just used some ramps on the front and made sure i had plenty of leverage when untorque and torque the bolts. When putting the mount back in i had to lubricate the mount and influence it a little bit with a mallet. Also, make sure that all holes lineup and you just slightly thread the bolts through, but with it being lubed that will be easy.

But with the Insert the process will be generally the same.

You shouldn't have to. With the RMM out its easy to wiggle the engine a bit to get stuff to line up if you have to. When I did mine I pulled off the bracket that mounts to the trans too for some extra room. Overall its a pretty easy install.

OK, since I'm just adding the insert, should I just be able to remove the bolts, pull off that trans bracket and slide it in with some grease? That simple?

Yep! Its really easy especially since you're reusing the stock mount. Took me less than 30 minutes to do with a lift.
