I’ll keep that in mind. Probably need to replace every mount on the engine and transmission.
I would say that'd be a fair assessment. Luckily, none of them are too complicated. Most just need propping up of the engine and/or trans to replace with basic wrenches.

Although I found that lifting the engine a few inches and replacing motor mounts is a better method that just dropping the motor mount brackets.
The second method will likely result in throwing off the alignment.
Thoughts?

I raise it a little with a jack. Shouldn"t be any alignment issues with motor mounts.

It came with the motor I swapped in. I hated it and removed it shortly after the swap. I worked at 2am and driving out of the neighborhood at 1:30am with the constant noise bugged me. I was not even in boost, just every time you release the throttle, it made noise.
