Ofcourse I had this done first thing in the morning I just got home to post the news. ZERO engine Movement. Very good results... Although it doesnt bother me there is vibration from this jerky shaky engine at 1000-2000 rpm.

Cabin vibration isnt noticeable above 2000 rpm

Nice Work! Its great that you took a chance on this. Thank You! Where did you get the mount? Looks like a very solid piece.

James Barone Racing hes going to add the 2012 focus to his site within a month but you can order this from him whenever...

I would like a slightly softer version for this car and Ill use this mount for my ST

Do you recall what duro JBR mount is?
70 red 80 black... i need 60 or 50 for this car its a bit to aggressive for my tastes. If the mount stays the same for the ST ill be all for the 70

The reason I ask is that I want to try the Corksport inserts and they are different between the regular 3 and the 'Speed 3. The stock 'Speed mount has 2 air gaps in the rubber and the regular 3 has 3 air gaps.

Good info....so I take it the MS3 mounts are much more rigid...I really havent considered the rigidity of a focus motor mount before, but it sounds like you have a good reason.

How does it feel? Are the vibrations noticable?

At 900-1300 rpm their noticeable after that there is none. Cruising there's no noticeable vibration. The car responds quicker to shifts down or up and very quick to when you floor it.

Any insight into how the rubber in that stock mount is made? I would love to be able to use Corksport inserts.

If not, I think StreetUnit makes a mount in 50 durometer...
