I have heard of people having parts machined that will completely replace the upper tranny mount under the airbox with a solid piece of steel. Is this bad?? I mean, the transmission should be allowed a certain amount of play and if you replace the rubber mount with a solid steel mount that could cause problems right?
If not, My company has a machine show in our shop with some mills that I could use. Any input would be appreciated.

If you want solid mounts you'll have to do all three. (tranny, timing belt cover, and roll restrictor.)

Wait until FocusSport releases their 2 new mounts.

One will be for the upper tranny mount and the other lower motor mount.

Should be quality coming from FS.
