Well took much longer to install than I anticipated. (My fault, not TTR.) But mount is in!

Some how I allowed the engine to shift a little so the new mount didn't line up. Then I had to undo the rear motor mount so that I was able to move the engine enough to get the DSM lined up right.

Hmmm..... did you jack up and hold the engine under the transmission? I hope that doesn't happen to me.

Id recommend jacking it up and then use a jack stand under the transmission and it shouldn't do it for you.

Yup, thats what it says in the install instructions. [hihi] J/K Good to know,
I always have some unexpected issue when installing something..the JBR psm mount for some reason needed a 1/4" on the corner of it to get it onto studs and I could not get the damn mount in... I did not have the reverse torx sockets to remove the studs and could not find them anywhere closeby (Car was jacked up and I didn't want to stop) so I had to grind off 1/4" from the corner.

Lol yeah, just follow the instructions and you'll be fine. Lesson learned for me haha

My only issue now is I have like a dragging sound going on but nothing is dragging so I have to track that down now.

There are some new rattles too but they are either under the car or in the engine bay. They sound outside of the cabin.

The psm can cause some pretty serious vibes. The Cobb rmm and ttr umm combined with oem psm is very tolerable.

Oem PSM is pretty soft, I would imagine it tearing/failing after some mileage, would keep an eye on it anyhow.

I'm going to reinstall the ttr psm when I finally have a decent weekend to do it. I got a house finally but had to settle for one without a garage so I'm still at the mercy of the elements until I become rich and famous enough to have a garage built.

I'll have a peak at it tomorrow to see.

Yeah a little more but not to bad inside. The psm already causes everything to rattle lol.
