VF-Engineering Transmission Mount - VW Mk3 Golf/Jetta VR6/2.0 (91-98), Passat B4 VR6, Corrado VR6 2.8/2.9SKU:
The VW factory engine mounts were designed as a soft flexible mount, to provide a very comfortable drive. Their drawback was a large amount of engine movement it allowed under torque load and on hard acceleration. Engine movement of the decreases stability under high-performance driving conditions and gear selection. We guarantee you will feel the difference when using these mounts.
To reduce this movement VF-Engineering made complete replacement billet mounts fitted with molded, high durometer polyurethane inserts. These mounts are constructed from billet aluminum and supplied with high tensile hardware. Which means the stock mount will snap before the VF mounts even bend.
These high-performance mounts have been tested on a supercharged Mk4 VR6 with 280hp and provide a dramatic difference in the stability of the car when accelerating and braking hard. The effect is far greater than you get by just changing your bush inserts. Gear changing under hard acceleration is also greatly enhanced. It makes a terrific difference on the 1.8T for example, giving you much greater control over drifting and wheel spin reduction for dragging.
Mk3 VF-Engineering Trans Mount
The VW factory mount is constructed from 1 thin (rubber) bushing and 1 thicker (rubber) bushing. The thick bushing is designed to compress on deceleration. The thin bushing is designed to compress on acceleration. VF-Engineers chose to redesign this mount by swapping the purpose of the bushings to use polyurethane instead of rubber. The new VF design is setup for the thicker bush to absorb load on acceleration and deceleration - the point under which the VF mount is subject to maximum stress. Making it more effective, especially under hard driving and or racing conditions.
VF-Engineering designed tooled up and manufactured a completely new replacement containing a molded, high durometer polyurethane insert. The mount is constructed from billet aluminum and supplied with the highest tensile hardware available. Fitting should take no more than 30 minutes and fits ALL Mk3 Golf, Jetta, Passat, Vento VR6 and Corrado SLC.
