Motor mount opinions

I have a 2003 evo 8 and Iím in need of a front motor mount. Shifting is hard , after driving for a while my engine rattles after slowly letting go of the clutch on 1st gear. I mostly DD my evo . I donít track it at all Only thing is which one should I get . A lot of people go with Ams , torque solution etc . I would like to know which will best suit me .

Any one of those will be fine. The roll stopper mount was my first piece I bought years ago (i have a Blox). Since then I completed the rest of mounts using Torque Solutions

Did you do the rear (dogbone) mount as well? I have heard mixed opinions on ride quality. Since I plan on doing this soon, any input would be appreciated.

I left that one stock as I've heard it can make the dash rattle a lot when its converted to a stiffer mount.

No, just like youve heard, I left the dogbone as stock. I have enough NVH already

Roll stopper, pass mount, driver mount only!

Torque solution is the way to go for mounts, you can find them used for a decent price on evom or facebook.

Whiteline or energy

Can you comment to how much NVH increased once you added the pass & driver side engine mounts to the existing front roll stop mount? I'm debating whether or not it would be worth it to do all 3 vs just the roll stop. It is my DD though and I do enjoy the comfort of the stock mounts, however, I'm not totally opposed to adding more "race car" feel as long as vibration is tolerable.
