---Rear Motor Mount (95.96)

Each to their own but this is the part that, for me, made the MOST difference to the car. Crucial to better gear changes as Ford made the original out of chocolate..
Any additional vibration?

NVH is livable, at least for the CPE stage 2. The Mountune is one piece but the duro is stiffer

No additional vibration. Greatly reduced the engine twist when giving it some beans which allowes for a much more positive gear change. The difference in build quality is obvious from the moment you see the parts together.

It has been a while but installed the adf custom skid plate w/oil change access tonight. Overall very pleased with the install and the quality of the part, I am going to do an oil change with the access panel and see how it goes. Also going to buy the front splash guard next.

Got ya. Not to belabor the question ( but will ) It looks like the wt. of the rear of the car is on the stands. What is forward, inboard, of the rear wheels to support that wt.? I’ve never seen the undercarriage without the air deck in place.
I have only used the jack rails, where the little “jack here“ arrows are.

I believe this is what you are referring to..but i have the Steeda Focus Ultra-Lite Low Profile BOLT-IN Chassis Jacking Rails installed on my car as well. Forgot to put that in my mods list. Let me know if this is what you were asking about.

Why bother with oil and filter access holes for the engine under guard. Lets face it it's a 10 min job to remove and a good opportunity to have a look around from the bottom of the engine for any other issues every oil and filter change.

Ciao

Coming up soon some more upgrades... just received the adf custom splash guard to match the skid plate and the mountune triple pass radiator. Mountune manifold just ship and mishimoto intercooler as well. After that will be time for a good tune and maybe some carbon fiber parts.. ON A SIDE NOTE PLEASE USE COUPON CODE "NATSTRS" FOR ANY ADFCUSTOMS ORDER.. I don't get any credit for that just want you save some money.

How much is the discount?

You just got your Mountune manifold shipped?

I ordered mine today and after 2 hrs I got a DHL text that I should get it by Tues next week.
