    I've ran solid mounts for years in other cars with no issues at all. Even my daily driver Monza had solid mounts with a thumpy 406,,,and you wouldn't know it riding in it.
    I also have a ventura with solid mounts,,,can't tell riding in it unless I told you. Smooth as silk.

    On a 4th gen I can't comment from my own experience, but plenty of others that do it. I can't imagine it being a problem in a car that is more refined and quieter than some of the old stuff I do it on,,,,

    I agree with the above. Many state they "suffer" from vibration but I just never had it. My question is did you go with a solid or poly trannie mount at the same time? I always did.

    Well if you want to keep the stockers,,,I personally at the very least like to run a torque strap.
