      We will now be offering FFE Racing delrin motor mount inserts for VF mounts.



      We originally built these bushings out of aluminum for our own in house race cars and made a couple of extra sets to make it worth the time to set them up. Now with the aluminums mounts success we decided to make another replacement bushing set of delrin.

      Delrins characteristics are a good inbetween from the original poly mount and our solid aluminum race mounts.

      These bushings are a direct fit for mk4, mk5 and mk6 mounts and replace the upper and lower bushings in the mount while retaining the rest of the mount body/structure.

      Due to the machining inconsistencies from original manufacturing from vf engineering some of the bodies vary +/-.015" or more in center dowel size you may have to slightly sand down the original vf piece or it might have a tiny bit of play in it until the mount is completely assembled. We have not experienced a scenario where we had to modify the vf base, but this is a warning if it does come up with a customer.

      This is not something that we can control because the original mount manufacturer did not have to hold the part to a tight tolerance since a rubber/polyurethane can stretch/squish into an inconsistent part and still do its job.

      We have built these mounts based off of brand new and used motor mount measurements to provide the most consistent bushing so you will be able to drop them in without issue.

      These are much more practical for a street car than the aluminum ones, which are more for race / street race oriented vehicles. These bushings will be more stiff than the poly bushings, but still give a little and be more suited for uses other than (but still perfectly capable for) racing.

      Price is per side, you will need to place and order for a quantity of 2 for a complete mk4/5/6 and you will receive 4 bushings, 2 for each mount.

      These will be priced at $75 per side plus shipping.

      To place an order please message me your full name, shipping address and phone number.

      Thanks,
      JC

      Material and tooling is now on the way to make bushings for the VF dogbone mount. We will have more updates in the next few weeks with availability and price.

      customer sent in some pics of his motor mounts. The VF aluminum was painted wrinkle black and the inserts started life white before being dyed purple to match the engine bay of his 10 second GTI.

      Does FFE offer Delrin dogbone bushings?
      If so will they fit in a BSH dogbone? I think they will

      We are in the process with FFE to have Delrin made for the VF and stock dogbone, We will have to wait and see if it fits the BSH mount. We found the Delrin does not fit the upper BSH mounts because the lower bushing on the BSH mount is slightly smaller.

      Thanks for the fast response!
      When you have the delrin dogbone bushings please post it up.
      My dogbone bushings are really worn and need replacing and I would like to try delrin.
      I can test fit for the BSH dogbone if you don't have a car available.

      Nothing yet, it is kinda on the back burner right now to other projects. Its hard to justify spending a few days straight doing them and running them all off when they really aren't needed once you have the uppers. We have the material we just need time to machine it all but time is tough to come by.
