Derp? Maybe this is why I don't really have a problem with my 6 puck? I have mazdaspeed mounts front and rear.

I have a brand new set of mazdaspeed mounts just waiting for an opportunity to go on. I suppose this is it huh? Those, coupled with the turnbuckle on the drivers side of the engine, should guarantee it Pretty much never moves.

Yes. I had to toss some stock/soft mounts in my car after the engine swap last year and with the 6-puck, it was pretty bad...enough shudder that the turbo was contacting the frame ever so slightly. After tossing in the Mazdaspeed MX-5 (NOT MazdaComp aka Mazdaspeed Motorsports) mounts in, almost all of it has gone away. I'm still on stock diff mounts though.

solid diff mounts made my 6-puck worse.

Leatherface has a FM S2 for sale. I may pick it up. I figure if I can at LEAST get a year out of it.. I will get to enjoy the car this summer and be in a better financial position to properly fix it this winter.

Dern missed it.

Notice how the fancy carbon fiber side is what failed.

and like I said before, I was slipping that clutch with ~200rwtq.

My 6-puck likes to chatter with stock engine mounts. Seems slightly better with ES poly diff bushings now, but it's probably all in my head.

Sorry to hear that. Would have liked to know your feed back on the 4-puck. I had one in a racecar I sold and nothing I did make it drive smoothly.
