should search for it, there is a write up somewhere
its the top one
when you open the hood you will see the black brace connecting the frame of the car to a dogbone that then connects to the aluminum bracket that is connected to the engine.
-inside the black brace connecting to the car is the square motor mount. flip it. now instead of the engine moving by itself it will move more with the car. you can notice the diffrence and its a free mod. i like it. and there are no cons

Wtf.... What's the trick to getting the rubber out without cutting it out

detach the dogbone from the square mount.
leave the axle inside the mount and put the bolts on each side of it back on the axle and tighten them really tight. spray tons of wd-40 all over the mount so it will slide over. then get a wrench on both sides and push or pull till it flips

Right I'm waiting on a buddy to buy the 2 pack of mounts but in the mean time imma flip it. Now when I replace it I'm guessing I'm going to cut the old one out, how hard is putting the new one in?

Curious to see how much a difference can be felt between a flipped mount, and a poly?

Very easy to do this mod and you can feel a big difference.
