This is a fantastic thread.
I'm actually trying a new set of Febi OEM mounts all the way around. My mounts are currently original, broken, and have 220,000kms on them. I figure new mounts, even OEM should be night and day difference.
I have BFI stage II mounts in my 93 Jetta ABA-T, and it's pretty harsh. I don't mind that in my second car that's built to be quick, but I wouldn't want to daily a car with stiff mounts.
Exactly. Plus, I'm only running stage II software, and all supporting mods. That'd put me at what ... maybe 240ft-pd-tq?
I don't see that being _hugely_ detrimental to the longevity of Febi units. I could be wrong though ...
Just FYI, the Bfi stg 1's aren't bad at all... In case you wanna smooth up your other car.
I think on your dd , stock mounts plus poly dogbone insert is a good setup
I just used a hole saw to cut the center out. 1.5" was too small to fit inside the bone without play.
the hole saw has a pilot bit, which gives you the center of your hole. I pressed the cut hockey puck in with a little lube and a vice, then used a smaller hole saw for the bolt sleeve and did my best to eyeball the center. unfortunately I only had two hockey pucks - the first one was cashed out because I used 1.5" at first - so when I drilled the center too small, I had to step up the hole.
after that I just forced the sleeve in with lube.
one question though, my sleeve is SLIGHTLY off center in there, was yours dead nuts?
