The only time I notice the mounts is if I lug off the line and let the rpms drop to below 500 rpm in gear. Like never.

That is awesome. In my supercharged si at idle and taking off from first it was quite annoying how loud the inside was. Lots of vibration.

Since you say these are as quiet as stock almost and are very functional this is my next mod after my build is done.

Installed mine today and love um. One question tho after I finished, I was under the car just double checking everything. I noticed that there is a small gap around the outer edge of the mounts. Is this normal? The car feels great while driving and at idle. Just curious if anyone else has noticed this?

Did a set of standard heights on a buddy's A4 Goat this past weekend. Did like most said for the install and after the apprehension of jacking the motor up it wasn't bad using all hand tools.
1 - Put the front on stands, chocked the rear tires. Remove skid plate. Jack the motor up on the oil pan with 2-2x4's and floor jack. Didn't have a 4x4.
2 - Driver's side pulled from the top - Broke the two mount bolts loose before removing the three bolts on the motor plate. Accomplished this with a swivel joint for the middle bolt which was a pain but it came out eventually. That is a tight area in the plate for that bolt. An air ratchet would have made short work of this but I don't have one.
3 - Next, figure the magic combination out to lift the mount/bushing out and reverse that to install new one. (hindsight would say jack the motor up more but we were doing as little as possible) It lined back up pretty easy.
4 - Passenger side removal was from the bottom. Had to jack the motor up more than with the driver's side which made us nervous. Went slow until we had enough clearance. Didn't go so high as to remove the strut tower bar but we did have to unpop the trans dipstick and the metal tube came to just under the weather stripping with the dipstick just sitting in there loose.
5 - Tighter clearance on the pasenger side but it actually was faster than the driver's side. Swap the mounts real quick and lower it back down with the shields in place.
I think it took a couple of hours due the fact we looked at it more than actually turning wrenches. We had to make a run to the autoparts store to pick up a 18mm deepwell for the lower bushing/mount bolts. A regular socket wouldn't fit and my set conveniently skipped that size. For the top engine mount nut I used three extensions (since I didn't have a long one) and went straight down between the first two header tubes to tighten it. He has SLPs, not sure how different it would be with stock manifolds. Now that I have done it, figure it would take about an hour or less.
So driver out the top, passenger from the bottom. No crossmember/front cradle moves required, just jacking the motor up. There wasn't an airbox in the way; had a Vararam on it.
The car responds faster, the power transfer is instant. I'll be doing this soon too.

Urethane Engine Mounts GTO/C5/C6
OEM Standard Height

These MM should be arriving sometime today (Wed 12/19). Depending on the time, possible installed as well. They will be replacing the Noltec (new design) Motor Mounts which I received/installed 03/2008. Installer believes the Noltec's are shot.

Question before installing your MM ..... have the SCSS Trans Mount installed (03/2011), and understand it's oem height. Will there be any compatibity issue between your oem height MM, and the SCSS TM?

Failed to consider any compatibility issue before placing order.

Update... install completed...installer didn't believe there would be any compatibility issue.

I just got a set of these today from my wonderful girlfriend and installed them tonight.. WOW this is one of the best mods I have ever done! They make the car shift like a dream and everything feel so much more connected and the power transfer is instant with no sloppy feeling in the drivetrain anymore.. If your one the fence about getting these just do it you'll be impressed. Btw my car only has 14,500 miles on it and they made that big of difference.
