Filled a stock mount with 65 durometer urethane.
Now, I will say that this mod will increase the NVH on the car significantly and that the driver's side mount (transmission mount) is a far superior albeit costly and labor-intensive mod. But this will also help lock down the drivetrain and really liven up the car.

$50 local or $65 shipped within the US.

I filled my worn out OEM rear torque mount ages ago. It does increase cabin vibrations due to the low idle setting of the engine.

My fix for this was simple... tell OVT to raise my idle speed to 800rpm during my tuning process. Bam! No more cabin vibrations and easier launches from a stand still because the engine is already revving ever so slightly higher.

It’s now been many years and I upgraded to the Corksport rear mount to get even more stiffness for a better shifting feel / engine response. Still idling at 800rpm and have zero cabin vibrations.

Figured I’d throw in an FYI for those who may be interested in trying out a stiffer engine mount before dishing out more cash for a proper torque mount from say... Corksport.

OP, good luck with the sale.
