Yep, I've always said the NVH on these was extremely minimal. There is no downside to me personally.

That is good to know.  I have been hesitant on them due to that as I don't want it to make my ride less enjoyable.

I just got word mine are at my house now. I'll try to get them in tomorrow if it ever stops raining. I will give a full report as well after driving with them for a few days. I will say Anthony DiCunzolo seems like a top notch guy with great customer service. Thank you Jordan for sending me his way.

No problem! I really think this mod is tied with intercooler in terms of benefits and I recommend both to everyone interested. Enjoy!

Too bad these add noticeable NVH. I'd buy a pair for my MKS, but I don't want to ruin the ultra-comfy ride haha. Same reason I don't lower the car.

Mine have been on for about 1500 miles now, I wouldn't even call it noticeable now. It was minimal at the time of install. If I were to get another car for some reason this would be the first mod I would do. I also have not lowered my car for the same reason.

Is this for real?  I'm trying to understand this.  Ok:  This is the 3rd generation yet no one has ever heard of this company before all while their 1st and 2nd generation torque mounts have been in use?  For 2013+ SHO's only?  So the other guy Dicunzolo just copied them?  Or orders them through this company...in lightning speed to get them to your house within 24 hours?  Doesn't seem plausible that this company originated these torque mounts but no one knew about it.  I hope it's not the opposite...I hope Dicunzolo isn't getting ripped off here.

I just saw it while trying to figure out if I was going aftermarket or upgraded factory. I decided to use revised factory rear and retain the original front. I wanted to share it with anyone who was interested in upgrading. I have no idea who invented the part but I'm glad people are keeping this platform going.

I suspect he is sharing and giving an alternative product to consider that's all. Z  :)

The ones from Anthony have grease fittings and look to be a better quality.  I have not seen either of them in person, but based on the pics that would be my opinion and I am a machinist by trade so I do have a decent idea on what I am looking at.  Anthony is also a very nice guy.  I still haven't gotten them because I am unsure if I want to add ANY NVH to my MKS, but if I do get around to tracking it I will buy them before to add them for the track at least.

The ones from Southside machine are available with or without grease fittings, two different bushings for street or race, and powder coated. As well as being rated for 1800hp. They have pictures on their website.

 I chose to use the upgraded stock mount for warranty reasons as well as no added NVH. Once my warranty is up, I plan to use the SSM mounts as well as upgrade intercooler and other things.
