Introducing BFI's New MQB Transmission Mount

Black Forest Industries has been hard at work developing a performance transmission mount solution for 6-speed and DSG MQB vehicles, and the hard work has paid off!

The Black Forest Industries Complete Replacement Transmission Mount has been a long time in the making. BFI has spent countless hours of R&D and road testing to bring this total solution to market. We're confident that this is the the most robust, most durable, and best performing transmission mount available for the MQB platform, period. Available in two different durometers to suit any driving style, with its indestructible billet aluminum brackets machined right here in-house!

Unparalleled Strength

Many OEM transmission mounts are manufactured from flimsy, thin gauge stamoed steel. This lowers cost, and unfortunately also drastically reduces the strength of the mount.

BFI's transmission mounts don't cut corners, and replace OEM mounts with a much thicker, reinforced billet machined aluminum. This thicker, more sturdy construction prevents unwanted deflection and makes for transmission mounts that are tough enough to handle anything your vehicle can throw at them.

The factory transmission mount equipped from Volkswagen was never meant to handle the stress and abuse that comes from the increased torque and horsepower in a tuned vehicle. We commonly see failures and worn bushings at very low mileage on cars that are even just driven spiritedly on the streets. It doesn't take a track car to warrant upgrading your mounts, and many people will not believe how big of a difference it will make in the way that your car feels. Many will describe as a night and day difference, and most are often surprised at just how much this part is taken for granted.

Functionally, a stiffer mount will limit engine and transmission movement, which will in turn allow more power to be transmitted to the wheels. Essentially you are freeing up wasted horsepower and effectively making your car faster. In addition to improving power transfer, in manual cars in particular your shifting will feel more crisp and deliberate as there will be less delay coming on and off throttle while engaging your clutch.

Stage 1 - This option features 70a durometer bushings aimed at enthusiasts who enjoy spirited driving, and are looking for better control over engine movement, without the sacrifice of additional unwanted vibrations. The Stage 1 transmission mount kit is best suited for daily driven builds.

Stage 2 - Featuring harder 85a durometer bushings, Stage 2 mounts are for the enthusiast who wants the maximum possible performance from their mounts. Perfect for heavily modified street cars and dedicated track cars, expect a noticeable vibration increase with Stage 2 mounts from BFI.
