Which one is the better product?

the prothane mounts only consist of the polyurethane mounts themselves while the Z-engineering product consists of both the mounts and the metal piece?

but that metal piece is 80 dollars more...

so which is the better product? will the prothane product work just as well...

does anybody have any personal experience with either?

Z-Engineering saves you the job of removing and replacing the bushings.
Then they charge you 80-100 dollars labor basically.
I recommend the Prothane + a little effort, and save your money.
Personally, I'm THRILLED w/ the results w/ the Prothane bushing set.

Get the Z Engineering I highly recommend it.

Positives:
No clutch chattering at idle.
Engine does not move when you hammer the throttle.
Minimal to no vibration at idle and I have an Esslinger cam.

Negatives:
None

I think this piece is worth the price however if you are interested in the Energy suspension bushings I have a pair that I never put on they are still in the packaging they came in if you want them PM me.

The Z-Engineering piece is eye candy. It's has no funtional advantage over a set of $20 bushings. Save your money.

Helps with engine movement under hard acceleration. Which helps with getting power to the ground better. Also improves shift feel. Thats what i have heard though. Might do some other things to. Oh and helps a little with wheel hop.

Try the Prothane bushings. I highly recommend them.

Positives:
No clutch chattering at idle.
Engine does not move when you hammer the throttle.
Minimal to no vibration at idle.
$20


Negatives:
You have to remove the old bushings and install the new ones. 5-15 minute job.

For those enquiring about what it does, do a search for "Tranny Mount", "Motor Mount", or "Bushings", and you'll find some good threads in the pile.
