    ^A lot on a manual car, sharper shifts and less wheel hop. It's a great simple / cheap mod. Only downside is minor vibration at idle since the engine doesn't shake as much but instead transfers that energy to the rest of the vehicle.

    Regarding the vibration at idle, Are this is something you experienced?, or it's something by definition, more rigid energy transferred to the car body.

    The vibrations are noticeable at first, but they do break in significantly after the first 1,000 to 2,000 miles.

    We offer a mount for the CVT cars as well as the manual cars. It has the same benefits with both transmissions in regards to wheel hop and traction.

    You'd never have to replace this mount. It carries a lifetime warranty to the original owner. Should you ever have an issue with this mount, you can send it in to us and we will repair anything on it, for free.
