Best bet is the buy an aftermarket mount plenty to choose from. I have the cp-e mount and love it.I have a 16 st3 1300 miles and downshifted today from 5th to third to give it gas and a thump.
Anyone know if the focus rs mount is better?
Or can I upgrade under warranty?
I don't think I've seen a case of warranty work being denied because of a motor mount.My main concern is warranty. Ford will blame the mount. But ford doesn't understand less engine movement less issues.
I'm going to do research and make a wise decision based on reviews and my end goal
Ford Racing warranty. Reduces your warranty from 5yr/60k to 3yr/36k if that part is the reason for the issue. Plenty of threads on this. They use to also limit the dollar amount. Not sure if this is still a thing.Ok here's the issue. I had this discussion when I worked at ford and nobody could give me an answer if mountune is under ford factory warranty.
The efocus mount is the standard mount now for the ST. It's still too soft for spirited driving. Either of the two cp-e mounts should be better. I don't have much experience with the stage 1 mount, but the stage 2 is nice. There is added NVH with the A/C on.Doesn't the 16 already have the upgraded electric focus mount? If it does will a cp-e be that much better? I swapped my 13s mount for the electric one and can't believe how much nicer it is when launching or downshifting.
