I've got 5 front mounts complete with hardware. Put mine on Sunday and I've been happy with the results. I'll be bringing them to Dan'* meet.

Here it is. Keep the engine in its place. With the car in park, rocking it back and forth barely moves the engine compared to how it was with the bad engine mount.

It is noticeable compared to the factory motor mount, but not any more than what I expected.
Sitting at a stop light is not when I notice it, it'* when taking off you can feel the exhaust. It'* a good feeling.

If that is the way you want to go, you could do that. Most of the vibration probably comes from it'* inability to rock back and forth though. If you ever are in the area stop by and I'll take you for a ride, then you can make up your mind.

I may take you up on that.

I was just thinking under accel its basically motor through bolt into frame with no isolation.

Maybe a few rubber disks in between may make your setup perfect !!!
