Stay away from them. The UUC TMEs are prone to failure. I know of a number of blown engines that are directly attributable to this.

i haven't seen any site or person saying anything about this happening. I think I'll take my chances.

Savage: I got the black UUC transmission mounts with TME for 70.00 direct from UUC. those are for street cars (daily drivers)... the red ones are for track racing and autoX mainly. I'd go with the black ones.

Ran mine for 2 years now. Not even an indication of them failing. I inspect them every time I have the car off the ground.

i believe that he is reffering to the mounts failing, allowing the engine to twist the engine/transmission, causing 1st gear to line up with the spot that 3rd gear normally occupies. try to downshift to 3rd, grab first instead, and instant excuse to upgrade to a bigger engine
