Well, I installed these a little while ago, but just now getting the chance to make a post with them. Anthony DiCunzolo is the guy sellng these and they are of an awesome quality. They even have grease fittings if you need to grease them in the future. He doesn't have a website, but you can hit him on FB or IG (@anthonydicunzolo) or email him at tonyuep@aol.com He's great to work with and always hits you right back to answer any questions.

As for the ride, well, you notice the difference the instant you crank up the engine. It just makes the car feel solid and the 1-2 shifts are WAY more direct. It was a huge difference shifting and completely changes the way the car accelerates, a lot more solid. The shifts are firm and everyday driving isn't harsh like solid mounts. Definitely worth it and a very easy install.

Full disclosure, there is a slight bit of additional NVH (Noise, Vibration and Harshness). Not much, but it IS there. I personally don't care about NVH and with all the mods I have done, this the least of my concerns, lol. But tbh, even if it was a daily driver, it really isn't bad at all...but I do understand, it's all relative...

Anyway, hit me up for any questions on the install or anything else...

I've had those installed for a while, they're worth every penny. On top of that, Tony is a great guy

Another benefit you didn't list is that it helps cut down torque steer, almost getting rid of it entirely.

Yes, there is some slight increase in NVH, but it gets better after a while. I personally like it, kind of brings some life into the dumbed down steering wheel feeling.

Nice product!!

I daily drive my BII with solid engine mounts and a urethane trans mount..... once you do that you will never go back to rubber isolators
Puts the driver so in touch with the road!!!
Rubber mounts are for soccer moms!

I would like to get a set of these. I email the guy over the weekend but still no response. Is the guy usually pretty good at responding to emails? Just wondering if mine got thrown in his junk folder

Will these fit a XLT 3.5L or are they specific to an EcoBoost?

Can you please give us a rough cost of the parts so we know what we are looking at for the mod? Thank you.

Hmm, not sure, he got right back to me, but I was contacting him mostly through IG. I know he's active on there. Try that if you have an IG account.

It wasn't too bad, around $200 or so, iirc. But you'll have to hit him up to get exact pricing, I don't want to commit him to that price as things change.
