Stiffer means more NVH, sorry. I have the Group N motor mounts in my wagon (along with trans mounts and cross member bushings), and I notice a lot more vibration at idle. Once I'm moving, it goes away. Once I'm on the highway at a decent speed (say, 75 MPH) I can hear the engine working. I can almost hear each cylinder firing. By 80 MPH or so, it is loud.

So if you want no increase in NVH, go with stock mounts. How much extra power are you pushing? If you're only stage 2 or so, the stock mounts will probably be fine.
