    Front engine mount most likely, a bad design at best .. im awaiting the powerflex bushes to be made before replacing mine.

    get someone to rev the engine while you watch, its will be rocking back and forth (back revs increase ) forth was they decrease if its the front mount, normaly in 3rd gear you wont hear it as the torque is holding it in the back position.

    this what it looks like

    The wall between the cut out sections is very narrow and once it brakes away thier is a lot of play.

    If you can get under to check it out when you get a new one fill the gaps with some black silicone.
