You may want to look at the Prothane tranny mount also. I have thier mount in two of my Camaros and am very satisfied at thier strength over the OEM units. Only downside to tranny poly mounts is increased drivetrain vibration in the cabin

Thats a roger on the vibration! I have had my tranny and motor with the Prothane mounts now for about 1000 miles, not sure if they have loosened up at all but everything is definately secure. I wondered if I put in a new harmonic balancer, the one with the underdrive feature, if it might get rid of some of the vibes? Allthough my girlfriend likes it, I'm tired of the 100mph vibrator!! Having something vibrate my *** feels kinda weird!! LMAO!!

i have an energy mount. you do notice some vibration, but it's worth it over stock.

The vibration I get is just after startup....once the idle comes down, the only thing that vibrates is if I have a soda can in the center cupholder.I did not even consider taking it out for the vibrations.....BTW, you got a good looking car
