    I dont get it...does your driver seat vibrate MORE with the aftermarket motor mounts? I would think stronger engine mounts would cause the motor to shake around less?

    Stiffer mounts transmit cause more vibration to be transmitted to the chassis. If they were softer they would dampen the vibration instead of transmit it.

    I bet the ladies must love it!

    Are they difficult to install? I want to get the Sti Group-N mounts, as I have already upgraded most of the drivetrain mounts excepet the motor mounts. I have installed the tranny and diff mounts, and am dreading the engine mounts.

    bah...my driver seat already vibrates enough as it is. every 4 or 5 seconds i get the good ol' boxer shake, id think you would want to lessen that.

    It can be difficult if you make it to be. Have a 14mm flex head ratcheting wrench, or be prepared to hate life. Completely remove the pitch stop, not just one bolt like is suggested in some tutorials. Remove the two nuts on the tranny mount studs before you attempt to jack up the motor, especially if you have just installed a not-so-flexible tranny mount. If for some reason the forward end of the pitch mount will just barely not line up with the slot on the motor when reassembling, jack up the rear of tranny about a half inch before you put the nuts back on the tranny mount studs and the pitch stop will line up.

    Those are the things I wish I had known before I started.

    Oh, and don't let the motor reconfigure your hand bone structure - there are opportunities if you screw up.

    Haven't had the courage / classiness to ask yet. I had a girl tell me she enjoyed my cars "vibe", and this was with the stock mounts.
