I would like to see the differences between all these manufacturers.

Chris see if you can thin the flange width with a clean and strip disc before fitting (if your bushes need it).

I think my kit is possibly the harder urethane version but sadly I cannot give any another feedback yet with my engine is still in bits

I'd agree.

You don't want to preload that bush, as you'll cause it to wind up if nothing else - bear in mind the engine and gearbox will be rotating on the axis of the driveshafts in response to torque reaction, so the axis of movement that the gearbox mount will move in is a sort of arc.

You want the inner parts of the bush to be doing the work, rather than the side buffer pads.

The more I read of this thread the more I think that poly-filling the original gearbox mount (if in decent condition) with, say, 60 shore is the way to go for a daily driver road car.
Just got to pull my finger out and do it now, maybe towards the end of June when I get some time off, in the interim I await you modified mount results.

I think you're right. Particularly a 987.1 Boxster front mount type. Get the bush, do the poly fill off the car, then change the bush over..
