    Thread: BFI HD MK3 and Rado VR6 Motor Mounts

      I have stage 1's all the way around including the tranny mount. I would recomend replacing all the mounts at once because the stage 1's were too much for the 'heavy duty' rado mount causing it pop. Also, after the mounts were installed i noticed my motor sitting slightly higher than before, it actually would hit the underside of my hood when i would start to slam gears causing it to dent. After i installed the stage 1 tranny mount about 3 weeks ago i noticed that my tranny sounded like it was whinning, but apparently thats normal if you put a solid tranny mount on a VR. I love the way my VR drives now, it feels very solid, and as my friends say 'feels like a go-cart' cause of the mild vibration.

      x2
      just drove mine for like 4 hours. (stage1 all around+tranny) feels awesome. not too much vibration, theres a verycool hard engagement of the starter, i can feel it with my with my butt. nice quick response and gear banging gives me whilash.

      Does anyone have a clear answer on how the stage 1 vibrates compared to the vf mounts?

    3. 01-24-2007 02:59 PM #38
      VF's are a complete redesign and replacement mount, our are inserts designed to work in the same manner as the stock mounts and using the same brackets.

      As far as firmness our Stage.5 & 1 are softer than the VF. Our Stage 2 is harder

      Do u currently have any in stock? When I ordered my Stage2 Complete Kitseveral months back u guys were out of the Poly tranny mounts.

      You didn't post a price for just the Stage2 tranny.

      Are you asking about the Powerflex units, 2 on each end?

      If so not at this time, dealing the English is complicated....at best

      i bought the stage .5's for my vr. they were way too soft. so i bought a delrin front mount. car feels great.
      PM me for welding and fabrication in the capital area. Located just north of Baltimore, MD.

    21. 04-16-2007 07:23 PM #56
      Just ordered .fives, cant wait to put them on.

    22. 04-16-2007 09:16 PM #57
      I heard that the vibrations caused some bolts to loosen up in various places even with the .5's, is this true

    23. 04-16-2007 10:07 PM #58
      other then my head no problems so far

    24. 04-29-2007 10:04 PM #59
      i really want a new set of mounts but im not sure which ones to get the stage 1's or .5's?? i will be commuting back and forth to college come fall(about 40 miles one way trip) my engine shifts way too much for my liking!!! which ones should i go with. i use to skateboard and i know the difference between 60A and 85A which seems pretty hard. I can stand the vibrations just not may car shaking apart on me. its the VR6 OBDII with exhaust and intake. what do you suggest???

    25. 04-30-2007 11:57 AM #60
      If you are at all concerned about vibrations we recommend the Stage .5

    26. 04-30-2007 10:51 PM #61
      is the .5's still a substantional amount of engine movement??? Ive heard that the satge ones dont really vibrate too bad. this car has got to last me through college so i really dont want to mess anything up i just can stand barely letting of the gas and then barely pushing down on it, having my engine slam back and forth. and when i step on the gas i dont want any hesitation from engine movement.

      Anyone have any feedback on the stage 1's

      maybe would i be better off mixing and matching the .5's and stage ones???

      i appreciate the info so far!!!


    27. 05-01-2007 03:40 PM #62
      The .5's are a definite improvement over stock. Neither mount will "mess anything up" you will just experience more vibration with the Stage 1.

    28. 05-02-2007 10:05 PM #63
      how much horsepower will these mounts add?

      Just kiddin but thanks for all the help and i think im gonna go with the stage1's. ive heard great things thus far about them. thanks


    29. 05-06-2007 05:01 PM #64
