Mount upgrade for stage 4

Should I even bother upgrading to GS mounts?
Or should I use the GS transmission mount with OEM engine mounts?

Mind you the... car is for every day street use and I'm on a tight budget.

I find having both GS mounts hasn't made the ride unbearable at all. Definitely helps in keeping the shifter aligned better.

Do the two GS poly mounts and the Diesel rear mount (Hydraulic one) upgrade; it should work fine for you.

I've got the two poly GS mounts and the european diesel mount. I have actually not noticed any additional vibrations. This is on my 2.0 with balanace chain intact.

I have the 2 polly mounts. I will be upgrading the rear mount to the diesel unit this summer. As for added vibration it's only detectable to the driver via the steering wheel when the air conditioning is working hard. Even then, it's nothing to write home about.

Some things are not adding up here. . . .Stage 4 (everyday street use) and owning a Saab (tight budget). .Nah, the GS mounts are great. I definetly noticed some new vibration type noise when I installed the engine mount and standard rearmount. I have the trans mount ready to go in when I get the car back.
