Installed both engine mounts today, not too hard, took me about 3 hours
including wrestling with the belly pan.

Driver side, easy.

The turbo side one is not that hard to get out, a long extension with a
u-joint on the end and you can reach down between the turbo and exhaust
manifold to get the top bolt. A socket will not reach the bottom nuts,
so a combo wrench is used. It would be easier with a gear wrench.

Make sure to support the engine with a floor jack under the oil pan.

Hint, after removing the hardware, jack up on the engine to lift it as
high as will go, this will give you more clearance to maneuver the
mounts out.

Shifting has improved, still not as tight as I want and the trans mounts
were done about 2 months ago.

Looks like a new snub mount is on the horizon.
