Softer than polly motor mount?

I am currently using a CFM rear polly motor mount and it is producing too much vibration for me. I would like to have a solid rubber insert for the stock motor mount or something to that effect. I dont want all that slap or bang when shifting hard but not as much vibration. There used to be a hydraulic motor mount made, but I can not seem to find it online.

Are the Prothane inserts softer than the polly in the VF or CFM mount? I would like to just bore out a stock mount and put slugs of pure rubber in instead. Anyone have any suggestions?

you could hog out your existing mount and fill it with 70 durometer poly. It is a lot softer than the 85 or 90 durometer stuff you probably have now.

Since you don't like the poly mount try drilling a few holes through the
poly. That will soften it up but still keep it from that thump you hear from
a OEM mount.

That's odd to get much vibration from the trans mount alone. How are the plugs and wires in your car?

Wanna trade? I have the 67A EZ-Mount from Massive and it's too soft. No vibration, but my shifts could be about 100% more firm
