Lighten the transmission mount

What is the point of this rear facing rubber bushing on the rear transmission mount? Looks to be for some other application. I assume this could be removed to knock off a little more weight.

I think I need a larger damper now! Just installed the headers with Sector111 Sport Inserts and the car just idling now is ridiculous! I sure hope the vibrations are dampened once I bolt the rest of the muffler/cat together. Right now the header is just dangling basically.

No doubt, I was just more curious if that was the reason. I think I will remove the front manly mount to see how much that calms down the vibrations. Does anyone make full rubber engine mounts rather than the manly mounts that might be slightly less stiff but still stiffer than stock?
