Well, just be careful. I have the rear mount, and it eliminates most of that rocking from hard shifting. Problem is, all of that energy created from shifting has to exit somewhere.


In my case, the bracket that the motor mount sits in (the powdered aluminum piece) snapped clean off, causing the motor to drop straight down, snapping my passenger side CV axle in the process.

Passenger side boot slid off, and the grease is all over my subframe and the back of the block.

MAC rear motor mount survived. The bushings got chaved into a bit, but it will be fine.
