The only thing you may not like are the engine mounts.

You get a lot of vibrations that aren't ideal for a DD. The cabin will feel like a rattlebox.

Beware of rattling.

This is especially problematic with Toybaru of 2016 and earlier vintage. Rattling is slightly less with the facelifted (2017+) version.

If not already installed, you may want to look into some body re-inforcement bars. The list of mods you want to install may exacerbate rattlings to an unbearable level.

The cusco engine mounts might be too noisy. Luckily you can just swap them out for some fresh OEM if its an issue. Depending on when your next spark plug change is, this might be something you can schedule to do along with other maintenance.

Stiffening everything else is probably a good thing. If this car doesn't have the whiteline transmission insert bushing and perrin shift rear shift bushing (positive shift kit) I'd definitely recommend getting that in.

That's what I'm worried about... Test drive is this weekend..

If it's too intense to comfortably DD it sounds like it's not so bad to get the engine mounts back to stock thankfully..

Yeah that would be a concern for me also if this will be a daily driver. Track car, completely different story. The twins have PLENTY of feedback/harshness/stiffness with stock bushings and components. For the street. My little FR-S has a new buzz or rattle every day, itís....charming.
