The VW factory rear engine mount was designed as a soft mount flexible mount, to provide a very comfortable drive. It's drawback was the large amount of engine movement allowed under torque load and on hard acceleration. This engine "slop" greatly decreases stability and smoothness under high performance driving conditions and rapid gear selection.
The VW factory mount is constructed from 1 thin (rubber) bush and 1 thicker (rubber) bush. The thick bush is designed to compress on deceleration. The thin bush is designed to compress on acceleration. VF-Engineers chose to redesign this mount by swapping the purpose of the bushes and to use polyurethane instead of rubber. The new design is setup for the thicker bush to absorb load on acceleration - the point under which the mount is subject to maximum stress. Making it more effective.
VF-Engineering designed, tooled up, and manufactured a complete new replacement containing a molded, high durometer polyurethane insert. The mount is constructed from billet aluminum and supplied with the highest tensile hardware available. Fitting should take no more than 20 minutes and fits all MK3 Golf, Jetta, Passat, Vento VR6 and 8V GTIs, and Corrado VR6.
This high performance mount has been tested on a 3.2 VR6 and supercharged MK3 VR6 with an all Quaife gearset running 270hp and provides a dramatic difference in the stability of the car when accelerating and braking hard. Gear changing under hard acceleration is also greatly enhanced. You will notice the difference.
