    Now I am all for Poly inserts, but be aware there is a downside too. You will feel the road more, and your car might vibrate some from the motor. But the upside is better launching ability, and a tictile response from your car. I would use enegry suspension inserts they make things, stuff and things, that I like

    The energy suspension kit only has the lower front mounts and the rear mounts, which really doesn't do shit for you. The prothane, on the other hand, has all 3 top mounts, and will make that mofo SOLID. I had the Prothanes in the FoDo, and they work like a charm.

    Prothane > all

    I've got Energy Suspension mounts in both my teggy and the Si. The Si has side and rear inserts in her and rattles a lot... but that's okay with me. The teggy only has the side inserts in and rattles less. Over time, the rattles lessen. Putting in shifter bushing inserts is also a nice performance upgrade.
