The stock mount is WAY to soft of both N/A models and the ST. Becasue of this sometimes under hard acceleration you get a lot of "Wheel hop" and sometimes the motor its self will even slam into the firewall! Replacing with a stiffer mount reduces all of that and will make your car more "connected". It will also help put power down to the wheel instead of the loss your get with engine movment.
