I installed my Prothane manual trans mounts yesterday and I expected vibrations to increase, but this is rediculous. Cruising and accelerating 2nd-5th is manageable, but srarting off in first through about 1500 rpm, it vibrates like crazy. My throttle body was pretty dirty, so I cleaned it as much as I could without removing it and it hasn't made any difference at all. Does it need time to relearn after a tb cleaining? Anybody else have this issue and fix it or do I have to get over it?

So you all know what I'm talking about with the bad low rpm vibration and it should get somewhat better with time? Or do yo mean vibration in general?

I know exactly what you mean. I was there when we did the install on Camos car and I've driven Foximus's car since we installed them in his car.

The vibs will die down after a while.

I've driven maybe 50 miles since I put mine in and now that I'm trying to notice, it's gotten a little better.

make sure the bolts are tight too, use loc tite red. the strong stuff. they are aluminum i know u should use blue but trust me use red, these things take a ton of vibration and need that security. if you dont know how to apply loc tite correctly just pm me i'll guide u through it. and tight does not mean as hard as you can crank it, bolts do break and **** if i know breaking a bolt on a tranny mount sucks. as far as the vibrations, you got prothane solid mounts bro. all i have to say about those from word of mouth is good freakin luck.
