I'm running them. I was in the mix with the wrong mount plates, but it's all good now. They are nothing like a stock mount and if you want a street car, they are not for you.

Thanks guys. It is for my street car but is not a daily driver by any means. I already have delrin diff mounts in the rear and I donít mind those. I feel like it doesnít make sense for me to have the delrin mounts in back and only MSM mounts in front.

I just dont want it to turn into a complete rattle trap. I guess I could always resell them

I still don't have a set with correct plates.

The old style Cadillac set i drove Bryan 's car with at MATG this summer felt awesome though. Way smoother and quieter than the AWR mounts i currently have in my street car. They were 100% street car appropriate.

They felt fine. Seeing my hood shake like a belly dancer is a little disconcerting, though. Not entirely sure I didn't do something wrong.

Bought these in the 62 duro on black friday and just got them installed. Holy hell there is a lot of vibration. It's as if my entire car is a speaker just sending vibes and pulsing noise, blasting at my ear drums. Adds much more NVH than my delrin diff mounts paired with MSM motor mounts. My horn (aftermarket) was rattling against something like crazy so I had to bend the bracket. Vibes are noticeable below 3k RPM and get worse approaching idle. I absolutely would not buy these for a daily driver; don't even think about it. I don't daily drive this car but if the mounts don't break in a at least a little bit, I will probably be posting these in the for sale section.

The improvement on shifting is amazing though. Also, the clutch engagement with my FM happy meal clutch and 10lb flywheel is really nice now. Used to have a good bit of chatter and now it doesn't really seem to chatter. I'm really hoping the mounts just break in because I do like how the car drives now other than the noise and vibration.

OK, so I'm not the only one who notices a lot of vibration anywhere near idle. Can't hear it outside the car, but the hood shakes like crazy and it's noticeable in cockpit.

James check very carefully how your motor is sitting in your engine bay. Make sure it's not tilted, make sure the oil pan and header/downpipe are clearing the subframe. The 62A mounts that i've driven that fit properly don't really fall in what you're describing, or at least what i'm reading.

Yeah, they vibrate a little more at idle, but they're not several magnitudes "worse" than Mazdacomp mounts. And really only vibrate more between 500-1500rpm.

Now... if they don't fit right, that's a whole 'nother ball game. They'll make the AWR 70A mounts feel docile.

Yes, I definitely noticed the hood shaking. Did yours break in a little though? Luckily I'm not getting a ton of rattles. It's more of a resonant pulsing sound. The cabin noise is just plain louder

I didn't notice any obvious tilting or clearance issues. I will double check though, so thanks for the suggestion. I'm actually not getting a ton of rattles other than the horn which I fixed. It's just noticeably louder and with more vibrations. It's not really a contact type noise. More just like the entire car is vibrating like a speaker. Another thing to consider is that I'm coming from MSM mounts which are even softer than the comps. Keep in mind I only have about 6 miles on the mounts so far on my drive to work this morning. I'm assuming the ones you drove were broken in and I'm hoping mine do as well. I'll keep you guys posted.

I'll tell you one thing that surprises me about these mounts is the lack of space between the folded steel sheet metal part of the mount and the billet AL part that houses the bushing. That means these mounts are not allowing much movement at all. There's maybe an 1/8" of space in there. I'm sure it's a good design considering the less space there is there, the larger the bushing can be. It just surprises me how little movement is allowed.

I did have a rattle that I could swear was coming from the engine bay, but I didn't get a chance to check it out before I put the car up for the winter.

Wait, wait wait. You must mean Black Friday 2017, right? No way in hell a V8R order was shipped and received in less than 2 weeks. Parts not fitting sounds correct, though.

LOL, nah it was 2018. I'm as surprised as you are. I received them in a little over a week and that was with delays from Fedex. They are even listed as out of stock so I'm not sure how the hell that happened. The fitment was fine. I guess the vibration is more than I was expecting though for the "soft" mount. Like I've said though, still got to break them in.

Fedex in a flat rate box?

Less harsh? which AWR did you have? Because just by looks these seem quite a bit more tough.
I've never run anything apart from stock, and I'm swapping a new motor somewhere next year. Planning on 250+ whp daily. Got a suggestion?

How else are you supposed to ship all 7 shipments for the 2 item order?

The bushings in these are easily 2-3x the mass of the bushings in the AWR mounts. They should be much more liveable than the AWRs. Should.

take one out and check the part number molded into the bushing. You may have the wrong duro.

x2 on checking clearance between header and subframe. It isn't immediately apparent if it is fouling.

PSA, urethane does not "break in" it just dies, slowly.
PPSA, I think my mounts, from vibration, are slowly sliding my driveway downhill away from my house.

They've been out of stock for months. I saw on social media (Instagram maybe?) they'd had a new batch back from machining mid Nov though, so I put in an order for the Black friday discount too.

I got the 62As too so will be interesting to see what they seem like to compare...

Maybe I'm a big sissy boy but I'm pulling these out. Even if they "break in" a bit, I can't imagine these being acceptable. This is not the direction I'm going with my car. It's too damn loud in there, really. I can deal with the vibrations, but it sounds like a damn bass drum in my hardtop only car. I can barely hear my FM 3" exhaust (which is pretty quiet though). I'm picking up some comps and calling it a day.
