if you are talking about the VF engineering dogbone mount...
::::::: Mod Name:VF Dogbone Mount
::::::: Cost: 200$
::::::: Online Store: awe-tuning.com
::::::: Time required: 30 minutes?
::::::: Difficulty: 3/10
1. pull car up onto ramps or jack it up in a secure spot high enough to be able to get underneath the car.
2. first loosen bolts 3 and 4. (when this happens the motor will possibly torque so i would stick some wooden blocks underneath so that it wont move when you take the mount off.)
3. take bolts 3 and 4 off.
4. take bolts 1 and 3 off.
4 1/2. If you are not doing the whole mount like VF and just the inserts, take the dogbone apart and replace bushings. Its pretty simple.
5. Screw dogbone back on by putting bolts 3 and 4 back on first. then you might have to move the engine back to its original position by hand to get 1 and 2 back in.

::::::: Why worth it: With the stiffer bushings, the engine moves less. When the engine moves, it is wasting horsepower torquing the engine. This keeps the engine still so more power is routed to the ground.
