slowing the eff down is the cheapest of the 3. if you're anything like me, thats not gonna happen. etd is cheaper than changing all 3 mounts. easier install, too

No, we both said the motor mounts are cheaper... nobody's fighting here!

Motor mount I believe is around $40-60, ETD is around $200. Both you can install yourself if you have the right equipment (have to jack up the engine itself to get it into position), or at a shop.

there are lots of options for the motor mounts. to do all 3 of them can be pricey but you dont need to do all 3. corksport inserts are probably the cheapest way to go. dont recall how much they go for.

there are only 2 etds that i know of: weapon r and mazda3mods. etds run around $200 which i find to be high for what you get. still, i want one, and would happily ditch my vibrant stb for one (im pretty sure they won't work together.)

does it only happen when accelerating through a turn? seems it may be something else if its happening when accelerating from 50 mph

no it happens when:
turning a corner quicky
when im acclerating quickly ( i mean from 3rd gear acceling quickly from 3000rpms)
i can make it happen when its shifting into 1st at a high gear (i just assume that it was way to much gas)

i cant say this is for sure but its usually on hills except the last one

Well I could argue that shifting into 1st from a high gear is just a bad idea to begin with, but I get the feeling it's already too late ;)

And not for nothing, but this is pretty much definitely the wrong place for this discussion ;)

traction bars will also be very effective, once they are available

O my bad no thats just stupid i didnt mean that lol i meant high revs not high gear, (and im not talking like 6000 +) it can happen anywhere around 3000rpms area it doesnt always happen but if i shift quick enough i can make it happen, ( like i ca tell when its gunna happen so i step on the clutch right away)

Well, your car is a 2005. It's entirely possible that you may have blown an OEM mount.... They are known to go out after random periods of time / miles driven.
