CFM Lower Engine Torque Mount Vibration?

I have been reading about them on here, and was just curious as to how bad the additional vibration are after installing one? I have read there is more shaking at idle, but how much? Is it that noticable? I really don't want any rattles that come from more vibrations..


Thanks!

the rear mount will cause no noticable vibrations. its when you add the left and right motor mounts is when you will begin to vibrate the car to death. id just stick with the rear.

Personally speaking, i did feel a slight noticeable difference in vibration at idle...but it wasn't something that was bad enough to bother me. But since installing the mount (about half a year ago) the whole vibration issue isn't even something i think about anymore. It most likely just needs to settle and break in a bit then after that you won't think twice about it.

Besides...the little extra vibration isn't enough to overshadow the benefit the mount has, at least to me it doesn't

I have the VF rear engine mount and I get a lot more vibration/resonance, especially with the A/C on.

Just put the CFM mount on recently too. Should have done this long ago. Vibration is negligible, I barely notice it. Slight at best when at idle, (my car idles @900 rpms.) My car shifts so much smoother and seamless, it totally out ways any small annoyance with vibration. Don't even worry about it and do this mod. You won't regret it and you'll love how your shifts respond... and just wanted to add, the CFM mount is a quality well built piece that works.

Tom's Predator tune will solve the vibrations.

I run a Mac Snubber...
The first 2 weeks or so, vibration is noticable...but not bad. More down low, not to bad at idle. Soon as you hit 2k rpms, zero differnce. After 2 weeks or so, it seemed to losen up a bit.

But you do NOT wanna run a poly passanger mount... Vibration from those are ridiculous..
