    Thread: BFI - Motor Mounts - Polyurethane and Delrin MK3 and Rado VR6

    1. 08-24-2011 06:08 AM #51
      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).

      G60s would use these mounts:

      Billet front mount

      Rear Inserts
      http://yhst-1918367471896.stores.yah...astremomo.html

      G60 solid rubber trans mount
      http://yhst-1918367471896.stores.yah...0sorutrmo.html

      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....

      Yes. Solid billet mount in front would yield the greatest performance for your g60. Original w/ poly inserts would be the best upgrade for the rear engine mount. I cannot say with certainty that a bad trans mount is causing shuttering or clunking in your car, but a worn mount could be contributing to those things.

      For all VRs we recommend starting with at least the .5 kit (yellow).
      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".

      Well, you're in BC so if you're driving year 'round I would honestly suggest you go with the Stage .5 kit. With the winter temps up there, the Stage I will feel very hard and vibrations will be extreme.
      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.

      So if i dont misunderstand i still need to buy original rear engine mounts since you are suggesting poly inserts for those?

      Yes, you should replace the stock hydraulic filled mount is a solid rubber mount.
      For added performance, you could also purchase a poly insert for the solid rubber mount.
      That setup would yield the highest performance, but at the sacrifice of comfort.

      What is the difference between the 2 different stage .5 front/side mounts for a 1992 VW Corrado SLC?
      One is 35$ the other is 65$ they look identical, and have the same product description and fittings.....?

      This listing for $35 is just the upper (taller) poly mount:

      This listing for $65 is the upper and lower poly mounts:

      Oops, sorry I didn't specify on that and gave you half of the correct answer.
      Yes, to use the inserts you would need the early style mount which requires the early style bracket (if you don't have the early style mount already).

      Also, no we do not ship to Norway. Only shipping within the United States and Canada.

      Sorry!

      Hmmm, my car is a 1989 model. So maybe i qualify for a early mount already?

      So how can i obtain a BFI engine mount for my G60 if you dont ship to europe? Do you have any european dealers that sell your stuff? I really need to change my engine mounts since it is a PITA to take off in first gear now
