Mini review of new AD Dogbones
« on: May 22, 2020, 06:58:12 pm »
I want to do a small review of the Anthony Dicunzolo Gen2 dog bones/ trans -engine mounts.
I received my mounts from Anthony several months ago. Unfortunately I was separated from my car for several months while I do 12 rounds of chemo in Naples Florida. With the current pandemic I had no way to get my car until just recently. I immediately had the dogbones put on.
First thing you will notice upon arrival is they are a work of art. Perfect welds, great paint job, athesically pleasing complete with zerk fittings for lubrication. Mine came pre-lubed with a clear synthetic lube.
My wife wanted to see them but I called them wishbones, not dogbones so while rooting around the back of the car she said she did not see anything like a wishbone. Later while talking I called them correctly dogbones. She said immediately she saw the nice "dogbones" but thought that could not be them. She said they are too nice to GO UNDER your car!
Nethertheless they installed nicely in 15 minutes.(at a mechanics with lift and air tools) Mechanic torqued inside to 76 and outside to 80 lbs. Not sure what that means I was not there to see install.
First thing upon start up is the different sound of your motor. It has a low bass growl, subtle yet noticeable but gone by 35 mph. Car is more responsive to inputs, totally got rid of the once in awhile wheel hop I get, has a real connected feel to the road and improved my already near perfect shifting. (I also changed trans fluid to Amsoil same time) Now 1st to 2nd while under WOT is like a dual clutch, can not feel the shift can just hear rpms change. Second to third is a nano second shove forward, 3rd to 4th no difference noted....rarely get into 4th or above in WOT....
So in conclusion I love them, would highly reccomend and would do again kind of thing. Great job Anthony!

Nice review, and best of luck with your treatments.
2007 Ford Edge SEL, Powerstop F/R Brake Kit, TXT LED 6000K Lo & Hi Beams, W16W LED Reverse Bulbs, 3BSpec 2.5w Map Lights, 5W Cree rear dome lights, 5W Cree cargo light, DTBL LED Taillights

If tuned:  Take note of the strategy code as you return to stock (including 3 bar MAP to 2 bar MAP) -> take car in & get it serviced -> check strategy code when you get car back -> have tuner update your tune if the strategy code has changed -> reload tune -> ENJOY!
