The Dogbone Blues
« on: January 06, 2006, 07:16:40 PM »
Hey All!

Problem: I have put about 6,000 (or so) mile son by 06 B6 2.0T FSI since my APR upgrade. That is not a problem. What is a problem is that the 303Ft. Lbs. of torque has cracked TWO trans. mounts! 8O  Yikes!  :? Anyone know of a good source for an aftermarket trans. mount? Of course this is the transverse mounted unit so it is dofferent. Keith @ APR and I both remember seeing someone that makes one but can't remember who. Randy... HELP!!!

EIP, VF Engineering, and ECS Tuning have Dog Bone Mounts.

EIP


EIP Lower Mount


VF Engineerings "Lower Pendulum Mount":


Price: US$ 179.00
Part#: VFA02-01

And ECS resells the VF Engineering Mount:
ECS Engine Mounts

I realize that these are all for a 1.8T, but they may have the right one for your motor.

That's what I need! I checked with EIP and  VF and they said no go for 2 point O. Sheesh. If I keep breaking these I know my dealer will eventually have to stop "looking the other way". Zoiks!

Thanks though Ian. This looks like it may mean a trip to my friends CNC shop.  :lol:

Whoa late poster ;), this issue was resolved 9 months ago, hell he doesn't even have the car anymore. ;)

I think at the time of this problem, the 2.0T versions were not yet available.

lol, I can't count how many times I have done the "late poster"!  I find myself getting engrossed by a thread sometimes and not realize it is been out there for a while.  :oops:
If it ain't broke, take it apart and fix it!

Go VF!  The EIP unit is not that special, it is just a TT 225 mount painted silver.  Trust me I have seen both.

Two thumbs up for the resurection :P
