If something could be made to mount even just a hydro mount on the passenger side and a stock mount on the driver's side(stock durometer), it would make for a comfortable ride. I would suspect we'd also need something additional to help deal with the torque to help reduce the twisting forces, though. Something along the lines of what Scott/STS Machining has going on, but less solidly mounted.

Actually, I think a NASA rocket scientist (Steve Papell) gets the nod for the first ferrofluids -- and everyone else took it from there.


3rd mount up top Dave -- draw it up and get somebody local to fab it -- or break down and crank up some welding skills. One of the best moves I made on mine - smooth as silk, quiet -- and virtually no engine movement under torque - accel or decel.
