At least that's what I assume needs upgraded. Hard shift from 1-2 and I get banging from either the engine or transmission. It scares the crap out of me. I feel it in the steering. I don't usually drive aggressively, but when I want to be a bit spirited I feel like I'm going to break something. Yikes!

Yep it's the RMM.

The bang is the motor mount itself hitting the chassis, there is plenty of clearance for the engine and trans. The factory mount's bushing is soft and allows excessive movement so the alloy part of the mount slams into the frame.

I went with the Mountune RMM and there was/is only the slightest increase in vibrations and it corrected the problem. If you don't want excessive vibrations while still handling the problem then I highly suggest you check out the Mountune RMM.

I've got the Steeda with the softer Durometer in right now and with the AC you definitely get vibes. No AC on, it's not that bad. You will notice it when accelerating from a stop though.

I also have the Steeda but with the harder bushings. Same vibes as @elyk864, but it softens up more after 1500 miles. There's still some decent vibration with the A/C on or if your lugging the car in a higher gear than your supposed to be in
