rear motor mount install on SVTF?

I am looking to do the VF engineering rear motor mount on my SVTF. Has anyone done this install or should I take it in somewhere and have it done? Any details on how to will be appreciated...

It will take you longer to set up than to change it. Its as simple as remove three bolts, loosen one, remove mount, install mount, install 3 bolts, tighten one. It can be done from a set of ramps and a jack stand to support the tranny. Including set up, 20min.

Well, maybe it's me, but mine took more than 20 minutes.

An extra few moments to clean the mount seat (it was really dirty, and I didn't want to plop my shiny new engine mount on that!).. an extra few moments to realize that no torque wrench I own will fit on the bolt directly above the catalytic converter.. a few moments to sip coffee and chat with my son.. and of course, wiping down and putting all of the tools away.. (13mm socket, ratchet handle, short breaker bar, torque wrench, ramps, jack, 2x4 scrap).

In total, about 25 minutes.
