Sorry, typo!

of should be it.

Standard if you don't want additional vibration.

Any 997 will benefit from new engine mounts due to the engines movement influencing handling so much and the fact that all original mounts are now 5+ years old and have become more elastic,

If you don't want any more vibration, replace with stock mounts. The RSS ones do give a more noticeable vibration below ~1500RPM.

So what do people recommend, heard good things about RSS, and an even slicker gear change as well, but now is stock better???

RSS are better in every way over stock apart from NVH. When I had mine fitted, I was quite surprised by the extra vibration and nearly went back to stock. That was ~5 years ago and they're still fitted so no biggie, but I don't do many miles in it at the mo, doubt they'd stay if it was used more frequently TBH.

After a year and 8500 miles the only difference in nvh I noticed was at 1900 rpm when it's a really nasty grinding noise but provided you don't hover 50 rpm either side you wouldn't ever notice it.
Benefits of them far outweigh this

I bought stock mounts and fitted them yesterday with my friend on his ramp - which was a great help as we are both getting too Old to lay on the ground!! The exhaust tips now sit a lot higher, the gear change is slick again and the shunting on throttle lift off has gone!
Well worth the 1 hrs labour and £250 spend 👍
