    Just placed my order for the PSMM. Hoping this does the trick cuz right now my car is pretty unbearable. I have already gone back to the stock TMM which definitely helped smooth things over at idle, take-off, and low speed. However, combined with the JBR PSMM and my COBB RMM I get ridiculous amount of NVH between 50-55mph. I would have gone back to the stock PSMM as well, but mine is actually shot. Also I have the prototype light weight flywheel from ACT because they used my car for R&D. Obviously this contributes some additional NVH, but what I'm experiencing at the moment is unacceptable for a daily driver cuz it's driving me nuts! If this new mount doesn't bring things down to an acceptable level I don't know what else to do...

    As you mentioned they don't publish any instructions, so are these torque specs just your best guess or did these come from Damond?

    I'm in the same boat. Mount is sitting in the office with no instructions. I'm using a combination of the jbr instructions and the Damond Psmm for the Mazda 3.

    The three mount bolts I plan to torque to 30-40 ft-lbs

    Nuts and bolts that attach to the motor and frame I'm between 45-60 ft-Lbs

    I ended up talking with Damond motorsports, consensus was 70 on the main, 45 on the two, and whatever factory is on the other three, probably 30-35 but don't quote me on the last part.

    Ok, so 70 ft-lbs for the 19mm main bushing bolt. 45 ft-lbs for the two smaller bolts that hold the bushing to the mount. Thanks!

    I think I'll do the three OEM nuts and two bolts to 40-45 ft-lbs. that's what jbr says in there instructions. Don't have a helm's so I have no idea what the specs are...

    Just took mine out for a short drive. Definitely some more vibration compared to the stock, but I would expect that. I'm happy with the level of vibration though - pretty minimal IMO.

    I would love to hear your feedback once it's installed and broken in.

    We'll get the guide done soon. Big bolt to 70 ft-lbs, smaller bolts to 50 ft-lbs will work fine. Frame bolts and timing cover studs to OEM values is ideal.

    I'll definitely post up a review after I get some miles on it. Probably tackle the install tomorrow. Would you happen to have those OEM values?

    80 Nm (59 ft-lbs) for studs.
    90 Nm (66 ft-lbs) for frame bolts.

    If I was actually torquing things on my car, I'd probably set it to 65 ft-lbs and do everything.
