Yeah I played that game too. Only the second time I already had the motor out so I replaced all 3 (trans.) with the solid mounts. No more problems there.
I do have a lot of new problems, but not with those mounts!

NICE,

yeah those solid mounts should hold, hopefully even through th e Vortech.

I already did the splitport, but not the sc yet. Definitely a noticeable different in the mounts though. When it acts up and runs really rough, the whole car shakes now, not just the motor. They are definitely SOLID!
Enjoy and good luck!
