I went with the steeda adjustable mounts

Install itself went fine. I did it on jack stands so knowing that i would remove the front wheels to make access easier. Loosen nut on top of motor mount. Support motor w/ jack or other means. Then remove the 4 bolts/studs holding the mount bracket to the motor. Once removed then remove the two bolts holding the mount to the frame.


Reinstall new mount to frame. Dont tighten 2 bolts down all the way just yet.

Reinstall mount bracket to motor. Tighten all bolts/studs. Hand start bolt that holds motor down. Once started lower motor down tighten down the 2 loose mount bolts. Leave top bolt loose until other side completed



Repeat all steps on driver side. Add step to remove steering column before loosening motor mounts. Once all mount bracket bolts/studs and motor mount bolts are tight and motor is lowered then tighten top bolts.


Impressions.


I lowered the motor 1/4”. Immediately i noticed some increased vibration on start up but no noise. More vibration thru pedals and wheel. Made it seem more muscle car. Didn’t seem to be overly intrusive. Got driving down the street. The first mile seemed more vibrations than normal but only until 3rd gear at 20 miles an hour.(if that makes any sense) After that it seemed normal. I would say that it seemed to have similar feel as stock mounts with just a touch more responsiveness. I also think ive been dealing with some false knock and i noticed more timing being added than normal with less instances of pulled timing.


I expected the vibration to be more intrusive than it is. Supposed to lessen with break in.


After a couple more days slight more vibration than i noticed stock only on start up. Does seem to handle marginally better around turns. Idk if thats cause i read it lowers the center of gravity but i cant imagine 1/4” would make that change noticeable. Anyways decent mod for $100. And a couple hours work.

feel free to ask any questions. Happy to help in any way i can.

Did you use both red bushings on the mounts or the red and black bushings?

I just bought these engine mounts for my 2019 Bullitt. I had installed a set on my previously owned 2013 GT and didn’t notice any NVH. I ran black/red as recommended for drag racing too. I’m hoping that they work just as well on the Bullitt.

I run the steeda mounts at stock height with the red/black mix. I have also noticed a slight increase in NVH, which is to be expected. Responsiveness increase is slight with a 6r80, but in conjunction with one piece driveshaft and poly diff inserts it is definitely alot snappier.

Nice, been thinking about doing this mod at some point, would love to get a tubular k-member as well but can't see spending over 1000 dollars on one.

Looking at these as well for the Bullitt. Looking forward to hearing your thoughts after the install.

I will definitely report back here once I’m done with mods. Been waiting on LTHs to ship for almost two months now. I will remove the K-member for the install, just as I did on my ‘13GT. I’ll also be adding the WL trans insert and lots of other suspension parts. I’ll make sure to get pics of everything.

I had to remove the WL insert in mine. Caused more NVH than I could live with.

where you near Henley by Lake Asbury around 210 yesterday? A gorgeous green bullitt went by, I was left turn lane going onto Henley.

I've got the Steeda motor mounts just have to get them installed. Thanks for the review.

That's the area I live, but I didn't have the car out yesterday. Mine is also a gorgeous green, might better check my garage and make sure it's still there! I live in villages of fireside
