      will the assembled tranny side mount fit a mk6 TSI ?

      There are slight differences in appearance but the preassembled mounts will work just the same.

      after taking a friend of mine for a quick ride in my car two weeks ago, he purchased a pair of mounts online last week (we weren't able to make it down to h2o to get any deals boooo)
      he's psyched for when they show up.

      Is there a stealth version of the side engine mount or is it just the tranny mount that has this option?

      We do offer a stealth option for the engine mount but unfortunately it's not in stock at the moment.

      Do your mount set-ups come with new bolts or do i re-use my OEM bolts?

      Folks, what's the ETA to get these back in stock?

      Ideally I'd like Stealth (which I believe means 50 duro, right?) for both sides; pre-assembled (in case I ever want to revert to stock). Do you offer such a combo? If so, when will you have stock? Thanks.

      When I bought mine the engine mount (passenger's side) came with new hardware. I only bought the insert for the transmission (driver's side) and it did not have any hardware.

      We had a problem with a recent batch of the stealth material - we have had to go back to the material manufacturer to find what that problem is, so we have not had them available. They will remain out of stock until we are sure we have resolved the issue and have tested it thouroghly. So as a result we don't have an ETA when they will be available. But we will let everyone know when they are.

      This is correct - while you can re-use all of your original hardware, we do include new hardware with the engine side mount

      No worries, it happens. Thanks for letting us know. And good to know there's focus on QC.

      Yes, let us know once these are back in stock. I'm down for a set of left & right pre-assembled Stealth mounts!

      Joe from Blackforrest, when i receive your mounts, do they arrive with new bolts or do i re-use my oem bolts?

      quick question anyone have any issue with these mounts and running a catch can. I have noticed some Aftermarket mounts don't have a mounting point for the can, just curious..

      Were not quite sure what you are asking - unless you are saying the catch can you are interested in uses the stock mounting point on the OE engine mount..

      Our can will not use that point so it will be fine to use with our engine mounts

      I have the BSH Comp can, it uses the OEM mount point. If your new mounts don't have it then that kinda sucks for A3 users.

      Unfortunately we will not have the OE mounting point you are referring to, as you have already noticed in a lot of other aftermarket motor mounts. You might want to consider finding a different mounting point as an alternate solution.

      I still don't see pre-assembled Stealth mounts (for Mk V 4-cyl) listed...

      BTW, the organization of your website is a bit erratic. Needing to look for "Mk V" stuff under "Passat" is sub-optimal.

      thinking about ordering them. gonna get a ko4 in the next month or so...which mounts would you reccomend? also i have dsg and looking on your website im just a little hesitiant to order want to make sure they will work. also no dog bone mount? just the insert?

      Earlier you said there was a delay with the stealth material side engine mounts. Does this mean the stealth engine mounts are back in stock?

      Scratch that - I decided to go with your Stage 1 mounts instead. At 50-duro (vs. 45 for stock) I realized the Stealth set-up probably isn't gonna be enough to contain my raging beast over the long-term. Already chewed out one set of OEM mounts (<50K kms).

      I just hope your Stage 1 set-up isn't gonna make my ride shudder like an old diesel taxi. Will report-out...

      will installing stage 1 or 2 mounts have any lasting effects on the car. i just dont want to drive it in several years hand wish i didnt install these mounts

      We recommend the Stage 1 mounts for your application - The BFI Torque arm insert is all you will need to stiffen the torque arm mount significantly.

      There are no negative effects other than some sacrifice in original cabin comfort regarding some added vibration. The longevity of the drivetrain components may actually be extended because they are not left to move about as much as they did before the stiffer mounts were installed.

      How much additional vibes would you estimate for the Stage 1 kit (left + right) vs. Stealth? In the realm of "a bit" vs. "a lot" (know there's no precise way to define these things).

      Also, I'm putting out at least 300ft/lb or 406NM of torque (though I've recorded 336ft/lb or 456NM on some runs). Would the Stealth mounts handle this long-term? Like, for 60K miles?

      I chewed out a set of OEM mounts in 30K miles, so I'm mindful of the need for secure anchoring. But I also want to keep the cabin civilized. Yeah, I know I want best of both worlds.

      Though the stealth kit would be able to handle and last long term, in the realm of that much power we would recommend opting for the Stage 1 kit. That way you wouldn't be sacrificing too much performance and at the same time not having too much cabin vibration . . . "the best of both worlds.".
