    Thread: BFI HD MK3 and Rado VR6 Motor Mounts

    1. 08-06-2008 07:54 PM #141
      Well I took out my tranny mount and it looked fine. I didn't look at the other mounts though. I was thinking maybe my subframe bushings are causing some play? Is this possible?

      installed my stage I motor mounts on the mk2 vr. You can feel the difference. Now I need to replace the tranny mount too.

      People that complain about the Stg2 Delrin mounts being too stiff are sissies. Plans for Stg3 solids ever?

      What kind of abuse are the delrin mounts designed to put up with? I've had mine in for about 5,000km and the tranny mount is busted for no apparent reason. The delrin is all loose and sloppy and spins/jiggles around like a $2 hooker. The bolt hole is still 100% functional and straight, any ideas?

      Delrin is a very strong and resilient material and what you describe is definitely not typical. Please Email us on that one.

      I got a small issue with my stage 1 tranny mount. The "v" formed between the top and bottom poly part either wore out or was machined a bit loose from the start. So now I have a little bit of play in the mount. Does anyone else have this issue? I noticed when doing my clutch, and am also wondering if when there is a bolt in there the 2 parts are pushed together, closing the gap.

      If your stock mounts are old and have collapsed with new mounts, ours or others, the motor will sit higher than it did but the same as it would with new OEM mounts

      I still haven't found a way to break the Stg2 rear and trans mounts yet.

      just installed the stage 2 on my mark2 vr6 and it does not shake at all.....sickest mounts ever

      but since I have the solid mounts it has pushed the crank pulley into the frame rail!! so I just orderd a gruven lightweight crank pulley

      are your stage 1 mounts harder or softer than the VF mounts?
      I do ported/modified VR6 and 2.0 throttle bodies, mirror polish and port intake manifolds. PM me for details.

    32. 04-14-2009 04:11 PM #173
      The Stage 1 mounts are harder (85a)

      .5 Motor Mounts installed, thanks Speedware, and they are a bit 'granular' to the over all feel of the car. You can definitely feel the difference between stock and the .5's.

      That said, there is a nice feel to the mounts, you do get a bit in cabin noise that sounds a bit like a growl, but they loosen up a bit when warmed up.

      So far so good, and I am waiting to see what they feel like after 2 weeks of break in time.

      The car does feel more solid and there is a noticeable difference in that the car feeling more planted and less subject to the sloppy mounts making the car feel loose in a corner when you roll on throttle. Hopefully doing a track day in the next 4 weeks and will give my impressions from that.

      Verdict: nice mount, great feel to the car, but there is a small increase in NVH in the .5's. Do I like them? Yes. Am I hoping they 'settle in' after a couple weeks and the weather warms up? Yes.

      I would like a bit less of the gravely feeling being transmitted through the steering, and into the interior.

      I would buy another set with out question at this point... If they outlast the stock mounts after 2 seasons of 5+ track days a year, then an enthusiastic yes.

      Though they did take a long time to reach my shop, and I had to reschedule instalation based on shipping being a tad prolonged.

      Cheers!
      Scott

      Scott... we think you will love the .5's after a little time with them but if not here is another option that we just released:



      Brand new, just released from Black Forest are these stealthy updgrade options for your spiritedly driven daily vehicle. These mounts are specifically engineered to fall in between new factory mounts and our popular .5 Mounts. These are constructed from solid gravity cast polyurethane and NOT made from rubber like the factory pieces. This will ensure an extremely long product life that will not break down like rubber, while still giving added performance with factory-like comfort preserved. All necessary hardware is included!
