When you first install them it is pretty intense. The car will shake and vibrate a lot. After 100-150 miles the bushings break in and they smooth out considerably. Not like stock, but that is the point. There are a lot of other things that need to come before engine mounts though.

The Pfadt engine mounts have been discontinued. Look into the Prothane engine mounts when the time comes. NVH is not quite as bad with them either.

Best regards,

Torque solution makes a pfadt copy that is ~$100 and works well.

I got the pro thane engine mounts from JDP and they are awesome. Really nice quality and I am so happy I got rid of the stock mounts. You have to have them in your hands to realize how crappy the stock pieces are. Way too soft for any enthusiast.
Thank you JDP and Prothane!

You can't go on their retail price. Actual price is far less if you search around I have as about a radical an engine as you're going to find and they suit my car fine. Good product esp now that the pfadt isnt around anymore

Any questions, please let me know.

Thanks

I'd been waiting to order these for when I would actually have time to install them (and decent weather), but then I just placed an order with Colorado Speed once I heard they'd been discontinued. That site has the best price I've found for the Pfadt and I'd been planning to order from there for quite some time. Also got an additional 5% off with a coupon code, so win-win I suppose. Shame they're discontinued. I just hope the website isn't in error letting me order them. :P

I got mine last spring for $115 and they should be able to handle anything. A little bit of paint and tada
