I have a urethane rear motor mount on two of my vehicles they definitely add vibration.
They are still on my 2 cars they really do help with performance with eliminating engine and transmission movement they get better as they break in.

In the Fiesta ST community pretty much everybody upgrades the rear motor mount.

Thanks for the responses.

I took the advice and just went to ford and got the oem mount. It costed more but it was the mount and bracket all assembled already. It was worth it.

I only swapped my mount for a used you to see if anything changed so i could get an idea of what I was dealing with.
It went from an rattle/vibration to a hum/vibration.
Now combine that with the rattles of a horrible assembly and this intake drone and it about drove me nuts....
Now it's just body rattles which i can tolerate but they will hopefully be gone in the next few weeks as I swap body parts.
But the intake drone is pretty annoying. I've read others having a similar issue. I'll have to make a new thread about that issue though..

Do the poly mounts (specificly the dog bone mount) tolerate cold temps well? It tends to get a little nippy here in Minnesota.

Thanks again. The advice is appreciated

Just be aware that these mount the ones I bought from ford fidnt last long at all. Maybe a few days and the hum/viberation was back but I'm a freak about my cars so maybe it's just me and I'm not to sure on that one but I'd imagine about the same as these rubber ones

The performance mounts will tolerate the cold.

Absolutely get the polyurethane mount for the dogbone. Search eBay for just the inserts, cost less, just have to clean out the old mount from all the old rubber, wire wheel in a drill does the trick nicely. Replacing that mount is one of the single best things I've done. Polyurethane inserts from energy suspension. And replace that passenger side mount, they suck point blank.

Pizzaboy is correct. Change the passenger side mount. If it were me, I would change all 3 mounts. Passenger side, driver side and the lower mount. Do yourself a favor, get Motorcraft parts for this job. They last much longer, and are not prone to failure like the chinese crap.
