just ordered the vf engineering lower engine mount

I should be getting it by tommorrow. What do you all think about it, and do you think its worth buying the driver and passenger side mount too? Im prepping for the powerworks setup ill be running next year. Ill be doing all my brakes with drilled and slotted rotors for christmas, and a few months later going with a spec3 clutch, and fidanza flywheel. Then the powerworks.

Wouldn't be a bad thing, just be prepared for a bit rougher feel from the engine that the stockers would have buffered to you. The rear mount is a good start though :)

try the rear mount first, if you dont mind the slight vibration from it then you could move to the other two, if you go to the other two expect a LOT more vibration. You WILL get use to it, I did, but your passengers won't...but the car will feel better driving the corners and shifting. For most the rear mount will suffice, the otehr two are for those who want to go auto-x and do some heavy driving

I've got the VF lower mount on my SVT, and I have the Powerworks blower. The mount is an absolute must with the added torque. It transmits a little vibrtion into the car, but it's not that bad at all. I had a ZX5 before the SVT, and the VF made the steering wheel buzz. Not so on the SVT. The Powerworks tune is so smooth that it's hardly noticable.

So i got the mount yesterday, and installed it. It was very simple. Took me longer to find the socket i needed to fit the torque wrench than it did to install the thing. Shifting is so much tighter. A little more vibration, but thats what you have to pay for performance which ill never mind. Ill probably install the other two by the years end.

the vibration gets ALOT worst with the other two, if you carry passenger they will complain

I love mine...great mod for the $. Seriously, the vibrations in my SVTf are not noticeable by other folks. If I concentrate, and play with the rpm's, I can 'sense' the slightest vibration...but, it is not a factor.

My only problem was getting the freaking stock screws off...had to use a 2ft. 'cheater bar...
