I did this a few months back, got the soft inserts as it's my daily driver. Honestly, I felt no difference at all. 45k miles, manual, original engine mounts. I probably would have bought a stiffer one if I were to do it again. I'm sure engine mounts will make a big difference, will probably do that next.

Do you have a manual, Tip or PDK, and what year?

Same year as me, but 25k less miles which could explain the difference.
I also wouldn't be surprised if the effect would be more noticeable on a PDK due to the shifting speed in Sport Plus mode.
Just a theory for now, so we'll have to wait for more PDK owners to comment after doing the mod.

Yeah could be. It's not a bad mod per se, if anything it'll be good for peace of mind for longevity of that bushing.

- This bolt has a Torque spec of 63ft libs
- You will need 20mm and 24mm Torx sockets for this
Sorry if I missed this somewhere, but does anybody know if the 997.2 manual transmission also has those torx bolts? I would assume the transmission mount would be the same for both, right?

My inserts are on their way, and it would be nice to know before I get under the car.
