I'll update later with pictures but we got the first prototype rear engine mount installed today.

I drove the car home tonight and there is no change in vibration or noise from the mount, which is excellent. The clunking noise when launching the car is gone from what I can tell but there is still a little bit left on a hard 1-2 shift. Chances are it's going to take the front and rear mount to keep the engine in place where it belongs when driving the car hard.

I'll keep you guys up to date on what we find and produce as far as the engine mounts go.

Thanks for the pic Jarrod.

It looks like there's another bushing on the transmission bracket. Possible you're getting some play there and would be beneficial to press in some delrin or similar?
That part of the bushing is pretty stiff already, there's not a lot of movement in it. I'm guessing what is left will need to be taken up in the front engine mount. It is just a guess though.
