      We're planning on installing this mount on our C2 Stage 2 project car this afternoon. I'm sure more pictures will follow.

      Stay tuned.

      Just wanted to drop in and post some feedback on the 2.5l engine mount..
      I've had the engine mount in since the day we posted pictures of it a little more then a week ago. MASSIVE improvement over stock.
      Significantly less bucking/jerking at low speeds, on and off throttle and dramatically less engine movement under load; especially when shifting at 7,200rpm pushing ~10 pounds of boost.
      It feels so good to have a proper engine mount cradling the 2.5l.

      *Forgot to mention - price and availability coming soon.

      I am trying to remember if the reservoirs for the windshield wiper fluid and coolant bubble is connected to the OEM mount.

      Coolant reservoir hose connects to the top of the OEM mount.
      There's a rubber hose from the bottle that becomes a hardline then back to rubber hose before it makes it's way to the front if the engine. The hardline portion is what's bolted to the top of the mount.
      We'll be keeping an eye on the line to see if a bracket is necessary.

      Tuck it, and replace with a full hose.

      I have the trans mount that only has two bolt mounts in front as opposed to the 3 bolt shown in the picture at the first post. i was wondering if the mount inserts were also different or if i can go ahead and get these inserts. my car is in dire need of some stability!

      Our transmission mount insert works in all Mk5/Mk6 vehicles, regardless of which trans mount housing your car came with.

      Still finalizing a few things in regards to price. We're still ironing out some supply details so that we can bring the mount to market at the lowest price possible. There's lots of billet aluminum and CNC work on this mount!

      I'll tell you this much - our 2.5T project has been enjoying the new mounts.

      The season has ramped up significantly and we're experiencing a high volume of business.
      We're doing our best to get the media out and the motor mount.
      Our manufacturing partner is finishing the first batch of 2.5l motor mounts and we're testing our complete replacement transmission mount in our Stage III+ FSI.
      Good things are coming, it's just taking a little longer then proposed!

      Working hard,

      Thanks for the update Pete!

      I guess we should be expecting announcement of the motor mount soon if your partner is almost done the first batch
