The single exit exhaust I had planned for is one of the items removed from the shopping list.
My parts list was created before the arrival of the car and I was thinking like I thought about my BRZ. I've realised the Suzuki is a road car, not a track car. This change of outlook took a little while to take hold.

I agree, in its stock form, it's a very road oriented car (comfortable one). Engine mount is as soft as marshmallow, stock suspension has a lot of travel, automatic transmission that change gear at 5,500 RPM even at manual mode, relatively high steering rack ratio (good feel though). It is quite apparent when you start bumping the power just a by a bit, it upset the balance of the car.

It does have the potential to be a decent track car due to it's lightweight but at what cost.

Disclaimer: I am bored and slightly not sober* so I am making post today about something not very interesting, ok? You have been warned.

Yesterday I had the aftermarket rear engine mount fitted. It has made a noticeable difference. There is much less.....mmmm...slop when changing gears now. The gear change itself hasn't changed but its effect on drive train smoothness is surprising.
It's better but I don't know if it's significant but I'm glad it's been done.
That concludes today's story.

You will feel it more once additional power is added. With stock mount the engine is allowed to move considerably, it feels like it's actually running away from you when driven hard.

Do you feel any difference in NVH? It was pretty harsh in my experience for the first couple of weeks.

The only difference I've noticed is a bit of vibration at idle.
