    Thread: HPA Motorsports Core Interlock "Dog Bone" Motor Mount

    1. 07-28-2011 05:21 PM #1
      HPA Core Interlock Performance Motor Mounts are designed for comfort without compromise.



      WHAT DOES IT DO?

      Our upgraded mounts reduce motor flex to improve torque transfer to the drivetrain, and prevent excessive movement under hard acceleration. Shifter engagement is faster and easier and stability is improved. These mounts will solidify the engine's connection to the chassis while still isolating its vibrations from the cabin.

      HOW DOES IT WORK?

      The unique Core Interlock design was born to balance sensitive chassis harmonics while maintaining a comfortable feel of the engine at idle.

      Unlike other urethane inserts which merely reinforce the OEM rubber mount; this is a completely re-engineered one stop solution that will control the engine’s motion without the need to install aftermarket side mounts.

      Modified Mk6 Golf/Jetta/GTI

      OTHER CORE INTERLOCK MOUNTS AVAILABLE:

      The HPA Core Interlock Motor Mount is available in four different durometers for the Mk5 and Mk6 platforms. They are physically interchangeable allowing you to fine tune the comfort vs. performance level to suit your driving style. Each durometer offers a distinct driving characteristic and is recommended for the following applications:

      • HVW-904-75 softest durometer, ideal for Mk5/Mk6 TDI daily driver
      • HVW-904-80 soft durometer, ideal for Mk6 Golf/Jetta/GTI daily driver
      • HVW-904-85 medium durometer, ideal for the 4 cyl. Mk5, Golf R, and 4 cyl. Audi A3/TT/TTS
      • HVW-904-90 harder durometer, ideal for the 6 cyl. Mk5 R32, Audi A3, TT, TTRS


      The reviews are in:

      I was super happy with the HPA Interlock from day one. Much quicker shifts, not really any noticable vibes in car, super easy to install took under hour from start to finish.

      No insane vibrations or buzzing. It’s quite comfortable.

      Just for sake of putting it out there, my vibrations have reduced since it was first installed.

      The mod is worth it...wow does this thing help smooth out the power delivery in the first few shifts from a stop...feels much better and seems like it comes off the line quicker and more purposeful.

      Definitely a noticeable improvement. Was much more noticeable when I switched to M mode, smoother shifts and a more planted feel, the herky jerky unsafe-feeling downshifts have been pretty much thwarted. Can't wait to flog it in some twisties! It is so choice. If you have the means, I highly recommend picking one up.

      Our Dog Bone Mounts are available for only $189.00 + $15.00 Standard Shipping to Continental US and Canada. International inquires should contact us directly for a shipping quote.

      Orders can be placed by PayPal through our website, or by calling HPA directly at 604.598.8520.

      So will the vibrations settle down as I drive? Because, the 75 version for my TDI is kicking my butt; for the amount of money I paid I could have placed a 35 dollar inset to get the same amount of mind numbing vibrations; not to mention I had to destroy my OEM inset to put the puck in. Currently, I disagree that this inset is "ideal" for the TDI engine.

      Please send an e-mail as I requested in my IM. We will try and find the issue for you.

      A significant amount of in-house development time goes into every motor mount we sell. We have sold hundreds of these to many satisfied TDI owners...

      Just so everyone is aware, this was an installation issue...

      In case anyone is interested, I need one more purchaser (any durometer) to finish a group buy on the Dog Bone Mount in the MkV Forum.

      IM me, and I'll add you to the list. Any durometer, any car...

      Group buy price is $160.00 shipped! (over 20% off). Thanks!

      Is there a backout plan?

      I don't like completely destroying stock parts with no way to return in a cost effective manner.

      What if I don't like the vibes this thing has? Is there a way to put a stock mount back in cheaply?

      I currently have the BFI Stage 1 insert and even after 500 miles I'm not that happy with the vibes. They aren't a lot, but its noticeable. Maybe I'm just getting old

      I appreciate the reply but it did not answer my question. Is there a cheap way to return to stock if I do not like the part? It shouldn't be a vendors problem if the part works as intended but the user isn't satisfied, should be on the end user to remove the aftermarket piece and return to stock or another solution. I just need to know if that is possible in this case, without spending a ton of money.

      You can purchase (hypothetically) a stock dog bone mount to replace the aftermarket version from your local dealer or parts store for around $75.00.

      Actually it's even cheaper. It's called the "Lower Insulator" and can be had for about 35 bucks from 1stvwparts.com.

      Don't know how hard it would be to put it in, those are pressed in by machine if I'm not mistaken but at least there is an option.

      Reading reviews. Trying to find someone that had a mount insert and moved to one of these to see if the vibes were less/more/same.

      Although this (HPA) puck is harder to install than a simple insert I think it is well worth it!
      ...(And I'm picky!)
