      Good day to all, hoping that some of you guys might be able to help me out here. I'm in desperate need of new motor & tranny mounts for my 8v Corrado G60, I can't seem to be able to find these anywhere, I can find the front & tranny mounts but that's it. Anyone done theirs and might know of where I can order a kit? Thanks any and all help would be huge

      Maybe have a look here:

      The 65 shore versions are nice - no extra vibration but stiffer.

      Ha... Jeff, I was looking for some of your old post today on this very subject. How straight forward is the front crossmember swap from a B3/B4 VR Passat? I have a 92' G60 and recently picked up a complete K-frame with axles, hubs, sway bar, control arms and ZF steering rack assembly from a VR Corrado. Getting ready to do the plus suspension swap and looking at my engine mount options.

      When doing the front crossmember swap what engine mount bracket is used?
      When doing the K-frame at the same time and using a 2.0 rear mount bracket w/ the VR front core support and mount does the motor sit any higher or lower?
      I remember an old post of yours regarding modifying the power steering line when doing the swap...?

      To the OP sorry to thread jack...

      It's always after closing time on this forum. You may want to post this on the Corrado forum.

      You'll need a Mk3 TDI front motor mount bracket or a B4 TDI/ABA (yes the B4 had an aba option) they all had a 4 cylinder 02A with a vr6 style motor mount. I don't know if you will have to change the PS line. I did use a mk3 line on my TDI swaps.

      I will add that the coolant hose gets tricky. I've been using a hybrid hose but when I replace my motor this next winter I will be using the 1996-1997 TDI Passat lower radiator hose. It was made for the combo.

      PS I had Vibratechnic mounts and they would rattle the piss out of me.

      Just a heads up I bought the lower radiator hose for B4 Passat TDI and its not a slam dunk. Now that I think about the radiator on the B4 is a little different. The Hose end is smaller on the radiator end than the G60's. I was able to force it on but then the hose had a lot of rubbing on the starter and fan (I'm using a spal slim line fan).

      I plan to make a hose work going over the motormount like the B4 TDI but it won't be a slam dunk. When I swap out my hoses later this weekend I'll take a picture of my setups.

      The oem solid rubber style tranny mount, TT HD MKII rear motor mount conversion, and vibratechnics front mount have been working very well for me. No slop whatsoever, way stronger so I hope that equates to longer service life, and only a bit more rattles than in stock form. Admittedly, I did go through the car and found a bunch of rattles from plastic trim parts that I eliminated. Change all the mounts at once and match the hardness (I think this combo accomplishes that fairly well) and you shouldn't have too much trouble with broken front mount brackets (my bracket has been run in this configuration for over 35K with no issue). Disregard this if you will be beefing up the torque as well; you need VR6 parts.

      Good luck.

      my lower Passat/Corrado Radiator Hose:








      I grafted a G60 lower radiator hose to a passat TDI radiator hose p/n "3A0-121-051-L" you could always do what i did for the first year or two of this swap and find some autozone/pepboys hose on a shelf of hoses that "might work" and be of sub-par quality.

      The passat lower radiator 3a0121051 L hose's opening is a little too tight to work on a corrado radiator. It will just barely fit on but its just way too tight.

      Would like to give a big thank you to all that chipped in with some great info. I ended up picking up OEM replacement style mounts for all spots but now that the car is in my shop for the winter I may end up changing my mind and going with something a touch more stiff, this way the little miss will def not want to drive it lol.
