That OEM jelly do-nut has got to go.
YES. It causes the motor to rotate (clockwise when standing on the drivers side).
The mount itself only has about 1/2" of shock absorbing movement but it translates to a couple of inches up near the top of the engine......where the connection to major things like air intake, fuel, control cables, and the rear of the engine to the exhaust pipe....that'* what the flex connection is for, besides expansion.
Now with the solid mount, the engine reaction to throttle input is instantaneous, without having to wait a millisecond for the jelly do-nut to compress and the entire engine to rotate a few degrees.
Rogue, you and Taylor both need to hold down all the torque you are making now.
The GTP'* don't have this kind of engine isolation device.
It'* one of the luxury features. To tell you the truth, it doesn't make much difference at all. My wife can't tell and I can just barely.
Taylor, follow the link above. All the technical info is there to do it yourself. Any machine shop can make up the aluminum spacer.
I made my prototype out of stacking big washers.
Do a simple test. Drive in 1st gear. At a slow speed of 20 mph, nail the throttle, then let off and nail it again.....repeat until you have erased all the dashed yellow lines.
You know what I mean.
