well it looks great. i'm excited =]
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.

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.
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!
I'll tell you this much - our 2.5T project has been enjoying the new mounts.
hmm well WHEN are you guys going to releasing the new mount!?!? i'd like to give you my money for one right now, but unfortunately you have no way of accepting it!
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!
