      There should be a significant amount of increased vibration with the stage 1 mounts compared to the factory mounts you had in there previously. You can try removing the cap but to our knowledge it should not make much of a difference if at all since it's actually a heat shield.

      the stage one mounts are amazing. they are a bit stiff at 1st but I've put on about 200 miles so far and they seem to be breaking in slowly. The ride quality is a bit scary at 1st but Ive gotten use to the vibrations and after a while the car seem to drive like it was stock.
      you can really feel the mounts working when you open her up on the HWY.
      I am very happy with the mounts!
      thanks BFI!!!!!!
      Just one more question guys, should i torque the mount nuts again after about 500 miles or am i good to go. ?

      nothing wrong with the mounts man. It is just a little disturbing/ scary at 1st when you drive it for the 1st time because the car just feels different than what you were use too before the upgrade.
      lots of new noises and rattles.

      It definitely wouldn't hurt to check the torque on the nuts after the break in period but we don't deem it necessary. Thanks for the feedback!

      I've got a Stage 1 front engine mount on my VRT.

      I知 a bit concerned about the bottom bolt as I seem to be getting some engine lift under power. I guess it may be the threads inside the cross member letting go?

      Is it possible for me to use a single long bolt地地ut to hold the top and bottom mounts together securely?

      M10 x1.5?

      Are the rest of your mounts upgraded as well? You should also double check the torque on the bolt and feel free to use loctite if you feel necessary.

      Hey guys, I went to buy a stage 1 dogbone bushing kit for my MKIV VR6 and a snub mount for my Audi Avant B6, and in checkout I see that shipping is over $17 to ship to 59044. I'm in the lower 48, is there an option to ship USPS? I think both those item could fit in a flat rate $5 box...

      Love the product, but man, I don't want to get beat up on shipping costs for two very small items.

      Mike,

      Currently, we only ship with UPS. Our website is directly linked with UPS which is how the site is able to provide a shipping amount during checkout. As a supplement, all of our packages go out fully insured when shipped via UPS ground.
      As well, shipping and freight costs can be more depending on destination. For example, if you live an excessive distance from the nearest UPS hub, their system recognizes this and raises quote costs accordingly to accommodate the distance. This may have been the case with your order.

      Thanks Pete, I appreciate the reply. I suppose the real answer is tough sh*t for me, and I need to pay to play, and it's just a matter of a few bucks. But I don't live off the beaten path...there's a big UPS distro shop here in town, and anything under $100 is automatically insured with no additional cost.

      I'm not usually a big proponent of using USPS, but they do pick up and deliver 6 days a week, plus have lower costs for standard and flat rate items. I don't control anything with BFI, but you should consider diversifying your shipping methods to include another carrier, or at the minimum negotiate with UPS for lower rates based on volume or carrier exclusivity (single carrier company). Especially because your business plan and income model is direct manufacturing, with online based sales and direct shipping to all your customers.

      If UPS decided to go on strike again, what's your continuity plan? (I don't need an answer, it's a hypothetical)

      Anyway, when I get sick of hearing my motors clunk around, I'll pony up, because BFI truly makes great products. Till then, at least consider my suggestion. Thanks.

      In regards to the post above...sure USPS is cheaper...it'll also take an extra two days or so to get to you...there tracking is horrible so it'll get there when it gets there.

      Im a driver for UPS and ship here and there, sure we're pricey but you can follow your package every day and when we deliver it we wont leave it out in the open...not here to bash the post office but you pay for what you get.

      Strike? Our contract isn't up for another year i believe and i dont see a strike as for the most part the company has been doing well and gettin every bit of work out of us.

      Lastly to BFI for using UPS i order from you guys often because of this, im impatient and like my stuff on-time or atleast like to know where its at. I'll be ordering a set of mounts today!

      Totally agree with you, I love UPS too. Its awesome to track and they are super reliable. I'm just asking for a cheaper option - when I pay almost 30% to ship two very small items, its concerning and maks my pocketbook say ouch.

      Mike,

      We've considered using other shipping methods, but like noskeh mentioned, UPS is the most reliable method for us to ship and it also integrates with our online store the best.
