so i was looking into getting an aftermarket motor mount
for my svt but then i was looking at the inserts and i have
an extra motor mount sitting in my garage but it was all
covered in oil so i thought i would clean it up and paint it
cause the aftermarket ones look better then stock so i
made it look better then stock...
and for $20 why not try it better then $100..

will update when i get the inserts (should be a few days)
and get it on the car




and
if you have the inserts how you like them

----------------------------------------------------------------------------
UPDATE












so today i got my inserts and put the inserts in the mount i painted up.
geting the old mount out was i little hard but not bad , but once i got it out
and looked at it it hard riped all the way around and was just kinda sitting
in the mount. now getting the new mount in was a pain in the a$$ cause the extra
inch or so of poly.. but man what a diff. it made going from a busted a$$ stock
mount to one with the inserts , it feels nice and smooth when shifting and
when i shift hard at high rpm its still smooth, downshifting is smoother.
and the vib. that everyone talks about i did not think it was that bad at
all just a little bit of vib.. i think it might be the best $20 you can spend
on a focus ,if you dont have a aftermarket mount i would say that you
should pick up a set of them cause for $20 why not.
i got the E.S. ones from Massive

ive had mine for over a year. every few weeks you might want to check on them. the procharger seemed to pull them half way out of the mount causing the mount to bang on the bottom of the car. i fixed it by super gluing the polys into the mount. its been ok ever since. plus the PC is gone.

Wait you mean the inserts were coming out of the mount? Yikes, that kinda makes me double guess the inserts int he factory mount.

yes, they would get about half way out. the super glue and removing the PC did the trick...lol
