    Stock motor mounts suck... sounds like a good time to upgrade to creative steel.... not worth your time to put more stock ones back in there that will just fail again

    Ok, thanks for the advise on the aftermarket mounts, is anybody else running different aftermarket mounts other than creative steel? Or are this the tried and true, best of the best...

    I've read about this issue before. When the engine moves, there isn't enough flex in the KN pipe, and it pulls off. Simple and permanent fix is to replace the 3.5" coupler with a 3.5" hump hose that will allow for the flex.

    BTW, I have a 3,5" hump hose, black, I was going to put on ebay. You can have it for cost of shipping.
