Hi,

Before you tell me that's a passenger car and buy a ST which also wheel hop but less, I would like to minimize it.

Already switch the rear mount for the electric focus one.

Next... suspension upgrade?

What do you recommend?

Torque Damper?

PS: yes,i've disabled TCS.

Did not went to the track yet. Maybe upgrade all 3 Engine mounts. I bet ST mounts fits.
Nope the only equivalent mount is the RMM which there was the bulletin to replace the base Focus mount with the E-Focus Mount, along with all of the other mounts.

The PSMM on the N/A only uses two bolts to hold it in v.s. the three on the ST and they have different spacing, and iirc the transmission mount is also different.

Turbo Tech Racing's Upper Engine Mount for the Ford Focus 2.0L (Non-ST). The Upper Engine Mount eliminates movement that your factory mounts have, maximizing torque and the transfer of energy to the driveline. In addition it reduces wheel hop!

Maybe you just need a stiffer RMM. I know the EMM was supposed to give you more stiffness while still keeping things reletivly stock. Try going with the COBB RMM or i read the the FSWERKS RMM is pretty stiff. I'm sure upgrading tires and supsinsion will help a lot too, put your probably going to spend a lot!

It's caused by driver error.

Patient: Doctor it hurts when I do this.
Doctor: Well don't do that.

How much vibration will the upper mount induce to the car?

Already have the electric focus rear mount.
