    You answered your own question.
    Obviously it will be different because there is no slop.

    From my understanding (or misunderstanding), you want to keep some flex in your system, and not make the engine driveline too rigid. I was under the impression that you either change the motor mounts or the transmission mount but not both.

    I changed the transmission mount.
