They are aware but would go a softer compound like a 6MT gearbox mount that is solid.

There is no solid soft rubber 5MT OEM mount, actually there is a GC8 STI RA mount is solid 5MT but all too old to be of any use.

Not sure what your GRB mounts looks like, they may be an improved designed over the GC/GD mounts(?)

Neat job! How did you cut it out? I was going to do a similar configuration but thought it was too much hassle to cut it all out, single line was irritating enough.

You were in a similar position as me, need a 5MT mount, choices are OEM too soft, or way too hard Group-N, aftermarket is worse.

Yep works well!
