Re: Polyurethane lower mounts (BoraVR6)

they kinda look like polygraphite inserts.
most p/u mounts i see these days are red... energy suspension makes p/u mounts and all of their products are red.
are you sure its not p/g?

I haven't had wheel hop yet and I roasted a few more tenths off of my tires. I would say yes there is a difference.

Re: Polyurethane lower mounts (MRP2001GTi)

MRP2001GTI,
Thanks for the tip. I've just placed an order. How do you like it? Does it increase the vibrations? I've heard if you leave off installing the round piece, you still get the added stiffness but without the vibration. Any thoughts?
I was about to buy the Bonrath set but they were much more expensive and out of stock. Thanks for saving me a bunch of $$$.

Re: Polyurethane lower mounts (MRP2001GTi)

I just got mine installed this weekend. Cypher2k helped me out.
When we opened up the mount, we found that the rubber from the OEM mounts had almost melted to the metal..
We didn't put in the cylindrical piece tho.
First impression: the car feels more solid. you feel more connected to the engine. 1-2 gear shift is a lot smoother, tho I still managed to get wheel hop in 1st gear with the OEM michellin energys.
BTW, your undercarriage is CLEAN! mine was filthy, especially the dogbone mount http://****************.com/smile/emthdown.gif
