Aftermarket & Industry News
After a lengthy period of design and testing, Black Forest Industries is pleased to announce the release of their complete replacement engine side mount for Mk5 and Mk6 Golf/Jetta 2.5-liter 5-cylinder vehicles and Audi TT-RS. This mount will completely replace your old, tired hydraulic engine-side motor mount. The weakest of the three engine mounts, the passenger side factory mount is fluid filled to create a softer, cushier ride. This softness is a detriment to performance and overall longevity as the fluid within the mount can often cause premature failure. BFI eliminates this possibility by replacing the mount completely with a proprietary bushing and bracket design.
Stage 2, with its 85a durometer (black) bushings, is designed for the hardcore enthusiast who is more concerned with performance than cabin vibration. It is a great choice for spirited runs and track cars.
Each engine bracket employs a double interlock design. When assembled it doesn’t simply rely on the shear strength of the bolts holding it together, it is doubly supported. The inner tubes nest into the recesses of the center portion of the bracket, and the arm is, in turn, notched to allow the center portion to nest inside the arm. This double interlock design removes shear stress from the bolts and makes the mount much stronger as a whole. Two pieces “lock” together when mated and the socket bolts are under assembly tension load.
