Re: yep, another 16v swap question...... (GoFastChickenwing)

yes. however I would recommend you replace the rubber inside the bracket for the mount by the TB. And make sure you have the big bracket. And use a Scirocco 16v rubber insert, 531 part number.

Re: yep, another 16v swap question...... (cole)

killer deal, website says 80 bucks for the 4 motor mounts.
Prothane kit is 92 bucks and includes the motor mounts along with all the suspension and steering rack bushings, all poly.
*edit* bump stops too! http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

well if you are going to go poly...be sure to get yourself a teeth protector. they may shatter with the mad vibrations..

i shredded my poly rear mount. and i know many other people that have as well. so do what i did, and get the rabbit diesel rear mount. they are much stronger, and will help to reduce some of the vibration.

Re: yep, another 16v swap question...... (mk1gti girl)

the lady knows what she's saying! http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif
I have only the poly front and rear...needless to say I will be going with the Diesel rear very shortly.
As for the sides...

My kidneys were screaming after a ride in a car with those things (I'm just lucky I don't have any dental work)

The stock side mounts are just fine.

Re: yep, another 16v swap question...... (Crazy Hungarian)

What they said http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif I really dont see the need to have polly engine mounts. I mean I can understand maybe the one under the radiator but none of the others. A rear tranny mount from VW motorsports (the one under the steering rack) and a scirocco 16v insert by the TB work just fine.
