At idle with the A/C on it vibrates more not much to be said about that .

Once you get going though my drive isnt bad at all .

You don't need tuning for pulleys.

You're right on that. Once you get going you don't feel the vibrations.

seriously i hated them at first too. but give it 2 weeks to be fair. and honestly my car is MUCH more closer to stock then i thought it would ever be.

its kinda loud when i take off from first or bog it at like 45mph in 6th lol but crusing its basically normal now. engine sounds great at accelerationg now too and theres 0 wheel hop. i can hook up in first again if i slip the clutch just right and feather my throttle.

The first time I started my car I was like ****! The vibrations were a little intense at first, but within a week or two they really almost went away. It has more vibration then stock, but really its not bad at all once they break in.

They make a world of difference. I'm coming from having an ingalls ETD, and it beats the hell out of that thing.

with the stock mounts still in i could move the motor a little bit with my hands.

With these mounts in, i can't move the engine with my hands at all.

The engine no longer moves, it's wonderful and shifting has improved even over having a stiffy installed.

It's pretty awesome.

Yes, it very slightly at idle, more noticeably with the a/c on, and from take offs and low rpm "bogging" the engine and hitting the gas.

Engine is louder because it resonates through the car's chassis.

I felt the same way, it's so hilariously race-car to deal with everything rattling and how much louder everything got blew my mind. they do get dramatically quieter, though.
