Need help choosing engine mounts - it is between 034's track or street density - which one should I get. I am more for then prefomrance- unless it is not worth getting such a stiff mount if the performance aspect is not much different.

I'm ordering track-I hope they honor the intro price even if they're not in stock. I need all 4 mounts. 180 vs 300= no brainer

I managed to get a set of polyurethane motor mounts for the passenger and driver sides back during their developmental stages... [up]
I wonder if the track density mounts are the same?

Noticed that you need all "4" mounts? Are you refering to the snub mount and the passenger side transmission mount as well?

yes and no. Is there not a t.m. on the driver's side? I was just looking down there today and thought I saw a mount but was looking at something else. I saw on 034's site "passenger side" but can't understand why not d.s. unless there isn't one.
It's dark and I'm not going out to look now. Also, I read Mike2.0 was running solid mt/mts and opted not to use the snub-could that be done with the track density mts?

There is one on the driver's side for the transmission (which would make a total of 5 motor/transmission mounts), however I've only seen one company make that mount and that is PureMS, I believe.
Here's a pic of the mount for the tranny on the driver's side:

Speaking of the snub mount: I had ordered one from 034 for $20. Went to put it on and it wouldn't fit! Was told that the mount had to be heated up and lubricated and whatnot to get it to fit. Tried all of that and nothing worked. Eventually tried drilling the hole out bigger and the mount broke when we were gently hammering it into place...

Yes I run a solid mount on the driver side but it is just a welded up L bracket that 034 made up for my car.

If you want a good driverside tranny mount for the 1.8t then pick up the "Stern" mount from Mike at Pure Motorsport.

Thanks Mike. So with these stiffer mts is the snub still necessary?

I have put in the 034 street density motor mounts, BIG noticeable difference, this upcoming week ill have the snub mount from them as well, that and new suspension, so it'll really be wonderful haha.

Post back when you go to install the snub mount. I'm curious to see if anyone else will have the same problem as I did with 034's snub mount.

It seems the 034 snub would not fit over the cross bar on the 01, the 97-00 were fine because I had the 034 snub mount(billet housing) on my car at one point but had to take it off because of the wreck.
