      Ok so you are doing a full billet replacement. Cant wait till that comes in

      Yeah, similar to the MkIV engine/trans mounts and the TSI/FSI engine mounts.
      I own a 2.5l myself, so I'm chomping at the bits to get these out of development and onto my car.

      This will be just an insert? If so then I'm really in, I like the idea of getting just a nice chunk of 80 duro and dropping her in...

      Hope this is the plan
      god i love my car. it may not be fast, but it's crazy fun!

      The transmission mount is just an insert.

      Engine mount will be a complete replacement solution.

      For 2005.5-2008 vehicles, there is just one torque arm insert - 90a durometer polyurethane.

      For 2009+ vehicles, we have Stage I and Stage II.
      Stage I is a 70a durometer.
      Stage II is 90a durometer.

      2005.5-2008 vehicles have a different torque arm mounts ("pucks") then the 2009+ vehicles.
      The 2009+ vehicles have more rubber in each puck and the rubber is a slightly different shape.
      The 90a inserts on 2009+ vehicles - because of the additional rubber in the mount - transfer more vibrations to the back of the puck and into the subframe.
      Because of this, we decided it would be necessary to offer a softer 70a insert to reduce those vibrations.

      It doesn't matter! Vf doesn't make us the motor mount! So the point may be moot

      Both mounts should fit the tiptronic.
      I know for fact both mounts work on manual and DSG cars.
      I have a BFI torque arm insert and Stage I trans insert. It's an excellent combination.
      The motor mount will pair up well.

      Price has not yet been determined.
      Stay tuned - as soon as the mounts are available for sale, we will be posting here in the 2.5l forum.

      No complete replacement mounts yet.
      We're expecting it to be ready for sale by the new year.
      That could change for better or worse, but that's our goal.

      It's not an easy mount to make. This one SHOULD take time to build a strong mount.

      Oh yeah - center bracket and mounting 'arm' will both be billet aluminum.
      It should look real nice for you guys that enjoy a little wire tuck.

      It should look real nice for you guys that enjoy a little wire tuck.
      Will the ARM piece be 1 piece, or 2 pieces like the other option?

      The 'arm' portion of the mount (that's not a technical enough term for me, I'm going to have to ask what it's called) will be a solid piece of billet aluminum.
      The center bracket - between the inserts - is also solid billet aluminum.

      The 2.5l is an excellent platform. It needs more recognition.
