I am very happy. I filled just the rear mount and the difference is amazing. The shifting smoothness has improved and gear engagement is solid. I used to get clutch chatter when i would engage first gear at low revs, but that is all gone now. engine is rock steady...The best part is i have not noticed any cabin resonance whatsoever. Bulldog grip is polyurathane construction adhesive and it dries pretty darn stiff, not like some of the other polyurathane's out there, they are way too soft to make any significant difference. I recommend it to everyone. You can buy this stuff at any HOME DEPOT. I think its called PL PREMIUM BULLDOG GRIP. it takes a couple of days to cure. I did the entire mount at once though, best thing to do is fill it a little at a time making it cure before filling it up some more. If you do it all at once the outside will cure before the inside extending the curing time exponentially. Do not get this stuff on your hands and its a pain to work with because its ultra sticky, wear gloves and use something to jam the poly in the mount.

If it takes that long to cure, do you have to leave the car sit the hole time? i mean, driving and running it and whatnot?

well, i had a spare engine mount, but i installed it after only one day of curing because i wanted to go to the track the next day with it on. it was not finished curing but the outside was hard. i guess as long as the outside is hard and nothing is going to ooze out, then you can re-install it and let it cure as you drive. i know nothing oozed out of mine as of now and im sure that its fully cured.

I tried the bulldog grip filled mount on a spare rear mount I had kicking around and just installed it today after letting the urethane cure for a couple of weeks. I'm getting more cabin vibration then I care for and I haven't noticed any change in how my car shifts. I tried a couple jack rabbit starts and it seems to help the car hook up better (no wheel hop), but I'm not sure if I'm going to keep it in or not because I hate daily drivers that rattle theselvess apart. I plan to change out the transmission next weekend (2nd gear crunches) so I'll run it until then and decide.
