Opinions On Prothane Engine Mounts

I've been looking at the prothane engine mounts. I noticed some members on here have them. What are your opinions or thought's? I figure the soft factory mounts might not last long anyway. Thanks,

My opinion is that they are a must for anyone who wants to shift fast and hard and/or thinks you should be able to tell that a car is running by feel...

You will feel the engine more, particularly when it is cold and starting up, but overall, the car is still smooth - at least as smooth as your engine - keep it clean, gap the plugs, keep it running smooth and you won't really notice it except that 3rd gear is always where you left it...

Downside is changing the clutch if you do that sort of thing yourself is already fun given the tight trans tunnel - the engine will lean back even less and give you less room to work...

Even for the DD - I would not go back...

I have them waiting to install the same time I do the headers. I have to loosen them up so I might as well change them and headers altogether.

I have the prothane mounts and the k-member brace with torque limiters installed. It really rattles my teeth in the morning on cold starts but really firmed up shifts and tightened up the drivetrain.

Thanks guys, I had the energy suspension mounts on my last fox body. I just hadn't heard any good or bad comments for the 05-07.
