FS: Brand New VF Engineering Pendulum Mount (Rear Engine Mount) *****SOLD*****


I bought this directly from VF Engineering and never installed it. Time to turn it into $$

It's a totally brand new VF Engineering Pendulum Mount with polyurethane torque arm insert (a.k.a. dogbone mount insert).
It comes with everything you see pictured (includes installation instructions), but for some reason doesn't come with a stretch bolt, which is the bolt used to hold the torque arm insert in place. I'm gonna swing by my dealer early next week so I'll just buy one then and throw it in to the package.
Here's what it does according to VF Engineering (Quoted from their website http://www.vf-accessories.com/...2.php):
The VW factory rear engine mount was designed as a soft flexible mount to provide a very comfortable drive. Its drawback was the large amount of engine movement it allowed under torque load and on hard acceleration. Engine movement of the decreases stability under high performance driving conditions and gear selection. We guarantee you will feel the difference when using this mount.
To reduce this movement VF-Engineering made a complete replacement billet mount fitted with molded, high durometer polyurethane inserts. The mount is constructed from billet aluminum and supplied with high tensile hardware. Which means the stock mount will snap before the VF mount even bends. Fitting should take no more than 20 minutes maximum.
This high performance mount provides a dramatic difference in the stability of the car when accelerating and braking hard. The effect is far greater than you get by just changing your bush inserts. Made from billet aluminum, under the severest conditions this mount will bend whilst the OE mount will snap. Gear changing under hard acceleration is also greatly enhanced. It makes a terrific difference giving you much greater control over drifting and wheel spin reduction for dragging.
Fits The Following Cars:
VW Golf5 GTI/Jetta 4/5 cylinder (fits 2.0T FSI engines)
Audi TT2 / A3 / S3 (fits 2.0T FSI engines)
NOTE: does not fit 2009>on models (4 or 5 cyl)
Retails for $200 USD + shipping
Local sale is preferred, so you local guys get first dibs

Thanks for reading http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif
