Finally the Engine mounts are done.Transmission mount is still in production and will be available shortly.Just to get these out there we have decided to do an amazing introductory offer of $169US Shipped (to the lower 48 states) for:
* MKV 2.0 FSI engine mount (street or track)
* MKV (any model) dogbone (street density)

For those who do not know about the density product line up,you can read the reviews in the 1.8T forum (click me)

Quote, originally posted by Engine Mount - Density Line - 2.0FSI »

We are VERY excited to be announcing the release of our 034Motorsport Street Density and Track Density transmission mounts for the Mk5, 5 & 6-speed 2.0T FSI
We've been testing these mounts for some time to ensure they are reliable and meet the criterion for the intended use - results so far are very exciting!
WHAT THEY ARE:
A new line of rubber motor mounts made FOR us by OE suppliers to OUR specifications.
STREETDENSITY Mounts are solid rubber mounts with a 50 durometer about 25% stiffer than stock, this means they still ride smooth and quiet but provide a marked improvement in drivetrain dampening over stock mounts.
Livable street performance with serious sport intentions. Note, don’t mistake these mounts with OE mounts, though they look almost identical, the rubber stiffness very vastly, think of these mounts as what the factory would have produced if they weren’t catering the car to whiney cheerleaders.
TRACKDENSITY Mounts are built with an 80 durometer rubber, approx 90% stiffer than stock, these are solid for all practical purposes and result in ZERO drivetrain movement. Vibrations from the engine are noticeably increased but not horrible. Definitely not smooth and quiet like stock mounts, but in return you get a completely locked down drivetrain with NO slop or deflection. These are perfect for the street/track enthusiast who doesn't mind a marked increase in vibration from the drivetrain, or the hardcore drag racer or track driver who is eliminating all slop in the chassis.
Performance with serious sport intentions. Note, don’t mistake these mounts with OE mounts, though they look almost identical, the rubber stiffness very vastly, think of these mounts as what the factory would have produced if they weren’t catering the car to whiney cheerleaders.

NOTE, THESE ARE NOT OE MOUNTS AND ARE NOT AVAILABLE FROM ANY OTHER SOURCE - These are built by an OE supplier to 034Motorsport specifications.
This mounts will fit all Mk5, 5 & 6-speed 2.0T FSI with pricing less than OE mounts, these are a no brainer for the street or track enthusiast.

Re: *** NEW : MKV Density Line Engine Mount & Dogbone mount - 169US SHIPPED (INA)

Incoming tech Article

NOTE : These Dogbone mounts ARE COMPLETELY SOLID,no inserts required.

1. Raise your vehicle securely using a lift or jackstands

2. Unbolt the exhaust hanger from the subframe.

3. Locate the 12 bolts securing the subframe (circled in blue), and the 2 bolts attaching the dogbone (circled in red). Loosen the bolts and remove the subframe and dogbone from the vehicle.

4. You should now be looking at this:

5. Remove the bolt going through the dogbone mount in the subframe.

6. Pry out the bottom mount. If the mount is pressed in very tightly, making 1 cut in the side wall of the mount to make it easier to remove. A saw blade can be used to do this; the plastic is soft and easy to cut.



7. Press out the top mount. It will be much easier to remove with the extra room, you can use a screw driver or drift to slowly tap it out

8. Here is a comparison shot of the 034Motorsport Density Line mount (left) and the OE part (right). Notice that all of the voids are filled with high durometer rubber on the 034Motorsport mount, allowing for minimal movement/deflection.

9. Mark the mounts and the subframe so that the recess in the mounts corresponds with the hole for the dogbone in the subframe. It’s important to align the bushings so they go in with the correct orientation.


10. Press in the new mounts, being careful not to pinch the plastic casing. Take extra care around the area of the mount with the void, since the mount is plastic this part can “squish” out during the pressing process. Go slow ensure the voided area is actually going inside the bore, if it apprears that area is seizing, further pressing will ruin the mount, a little extra pressure can be applied to that spot while simultaneously pressing to ensure it goes inside.

11. Reinstall the dogbone into the subframe, reinstall dogbone bolt.

12. Reinstall the subframe and dogbone, and tighten all bolts. Enjoy your securely mounted motor and faster power transfer to the tires!

Re: (INA)

Nice to see these finally coming out. Will be purchasing both the engine and transmission mount within the next 4 weeks.
I'm kind of stuck in the conundrum of track vs. street. I'm afraid that street is not aggressive enough, and track is too aggressive lol.
I had poly mounts in previous cars that would cause the engine at idle to rattle the hood and dash slightly. Are the track density mounts comparable?

Engine mount installation is as straight forward as possible.Unbolt the 4 bolts and swap.

It wont be anything like the poly mounts from VF.The vibration is minimal to say the least.

Re: (rysskii3)

some users reuse the OEM bolts and others who are super anal (like me) change them.Realistically speaking the bolts are thick enough that they should hold when reused but others will argue against that.
You can polish the mounts if you wanted.The casing is still aluminum....I had one guy spend about a day polishing all 3 of his mounts
