I would assume the one that is the hardest one to put in, the rear motor mount.

The rear mount is actually the easiest to install, although none of them are too complicated. I would start with the rear...

Well I was saying this one would be the "hardest". Not really hard to do but the hardest of the 3, let us know how you like the new mounts, I'm looking into some.

I get your point, but have you installed any of them? At least with the lower/rear you don't need to support the engine and remove any other components from the car. For the novice mechanic, the lower is the easiest. The others are very straight-forward, but more is involved.

Wait so what benefits to the VF mounts offer? I know a lot of folks have 'em, but what do they do? My engine doesn't bang anymore (it did a few times during the 1-2 shift).

They reduce engine movement. This translates into better shifting, 'snappier' acceleration (especially from idle), and an overall sportier feeling. They also induce some cabin vibrations, although the rear mount is almost transparent. You'll notice it at first but after a few days you'll be used to it. All three combined, well, that is another story. You'll always know you have aftermarket mounts. As long as you aren't sitting in bumper to bump traffic all day long though, all three mounts are awesome. If my commute ever changes, I'll be putting them back on.
