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

    1. 10-26-2011 05:20 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.

      HVW-904-90 Pendulum ("Dog Bone") Mount Applications

      Mk5 R32, Audi A3 3.2, TT 3.2

      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 Audi 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.

The slight vibration during throttle input really makes the car feel alive and I absolutely love it.



      Forgot to add that the shifts and reaction time of the car does improve.

      Mine's different - I think I got it from VF with their dogbone mount. I think it's the same in all of the important dimensions / attributes, but I distinctly recall having to buy a 21mm and a 22mm socket, as one was for the old, and one was for the new.

      I just installed my mount. Is it supposed to sit flush with the metal cup? Mine is sticking out a little bit. I tried using jack to get it in more, but it started to lift the car.

      It should sit flush give or take a few MM. Do not push so hard your jacking up your car, The mount on top is very soft rubber. If you tear this mount it's not much fun to replace ( sub frame has to come off usually )

      Please make sure that the channel is going straight forward so the dog bone can sit it in it without touching.

      Also ensure the bore is clean and has no burrs from removing the old mount, and lube up the mount before you put it in.
