Heads up, even the 50 durometer mounts are MUCH stiffer than the OEM ones & you can expect a good bit of rattles. If performance is more important than additional rattles or you have enough power that it requires better mounts, then go for it. BUT if you are one that is annoyed by rattles or other noises, you may want to hold off on this mod.

Thanks man, I can see the finished product in my head & it is SICK! But I'm not rich like a few may think & I'm doing most of it myself, so just have to traverse a few more years of work to get there.

Dude, I wish!
I've been driving the vehicle for the past week after taking care of the oil leak from the missing turbo oil return line gasket with no issues & she's pulling pretty strong for no other mods except P&P work.
Then this weekend I figured I would let her stretch her legs & drove up to Pine Mt for my brother's wedding. The car did fine on the way there, but on the way back no boost
but it didn't set a CEL either. So when I got home I was too tired to deal with it. The next morning I ran the car up to get some gas & make sure that it wasn't due to being so low on fuel. After fueling, still no boost & when I get home my fiance' shows me a little green spot the size of a quarter on the ground. I inspected the car from above & below with no luck on finding where the anti-freeze came from, but it is on the exhaust side & the only thing over there that I messed with that has coolant running to it is the turbo. I made sure that both turbo coolant lines had the copper washer installed on each side & I KNOW everything was torqued down over there properly. So now I'm scratching my head once again. I checked over everything & all seems to be secure, so I guess I might as well tear that side down again. I definately have gotten a better at R&R the IM & EM.
Anywho, I had to cancel my appointment at Forged for dyno pulls...once again. So I just told them that I will contact them when I'm certain the car is ready. Really starting to become frustrating considering all the labor I've put into R&R the manifolds 3 times each which could of easily been used to install the rest of my bolt-ons....sigh
But the one good thing is I'm no longer young & impatient as I used to be, thus I'm taking it with stride. Hopefully I can give everyone some good news in the near future & more importantly some RESULTS!
