i was able to modify the brace to work, and i always thought my engine was alot higher than it should be. now i need a diff to use all the power getting to the ground
I used the .5 setup with the green somewhat very hard rear trans mount. Im running an o2m six speed and am making 573whp and 508 tq on my previous setup and Im pretty sure I just put her up another 50-100hp with a beautiful 2mm larger big valve head, p and pd, titanium springs, locks, keeperes, and 034 lightweight lifters with 268 cams. I def think Im gonna get there hardest one for the front at least. If you watch my dyno pull on the corrado forum front page titled 573hp 508tq you will seen what that does to .5 mnts. I love them and have been putting these in for years but Im just gonna order the delrin or whatever is the hardest front one they have right now. BFI FTMFW!!!
I will be ordering sometime this week, but I have a question, will the stg 2 raise the motor up any? I'm pretty low and iif I'm going to change mounts I might as well order some spacers as well.
Weird question I know, but I saw your adv in the latest PVW May.2011 issue (last page) where a black Corrado is featured in your adv. It had what appears to be chrome Porsche door handles, Porsche door mirrors and probably BBS LM's...Any more info/pics of that Corrado?
I can scan the said page from the magazine if needed...
Just thought I'd throw my 2c in.
I bought these a while ago, .5s for the front and side and 1.0 for the trans.
It made everything feel nice and solid. There's a TINY bit of vibration (probably coming from the trans mount), but it's only at idle. All in all, I love em, great purchase.
The only thing is that I did NOT use the bolt they gave you for the side motor mount. If I did, I had no place to put the wires that were bolted onto the top of the original bolt, so I just used the original bolt again (after I had cleaned it up).
Billet front mount
G60 solid rubber trans mount
The transmission mount looks very good, i think mine is broken because i sometimes have a lot of studdering and "klunk klunk" noises when i let off the clutch in 1st gear....
The additional weight of the VR engine responds best with these mounts.
If you're looking for a more aggressive setup, or you drive hard on a daily basis/track your car/etc, then you may want to consider the Stage I kit (green).
Either kit is a definite upgrade over stock. However, the Stage .5 will be more "comfortable" and the Stage I will be more "performance".
If you're only driving during warmer months and you want maximum performance, go with Stage I.
It comes down to comfort or performance. Ultimately it's up to you.
