Since then KE sold all of those parts to Revo and I also buy direct from KE which is local to me.


BTW on these mounts you want to inspect them, could be that the bushing might need to be replaced.
interesting info....that explains why the top bolt size might have changed.

by these mounts u mean the pendulum or the engine mount?

but u don't have excessive vibration at idle tho?
if so, I wonder if these washers are even useful like BSH claims.
there was no instruction whatsoever for the mounts. and it comes pre-assembled so I dont think the shop did anything wrong.

I've never seen one either.
but I swear there was a thread on that over at the tex, im trying to find it but the search function is not exactly useful.

break or not the stock pendulum has too much to give.
seems like the alternative is the HPA red puck(or vwr ones) + stock atm.

If you are asking about the part where I say to check the bushings, that would be on the pendulum. I had a customer that blew them out and I got him replacement bushings for them from BSH which would have came from KE.


These are the mounts my customer had on his Scirocco running a HTA3076r with the AFI Turbo FSI/TSI tube manifold.





This is the bushings he had to replace.

yep i have vibes, mostly during cold starts. after it's warmed up it calms down a lot. i just meant their minimal and it doesn't really feel like "excess", especially vs when i first got them installed. but when i turn the a/c on it vibrates just like a cold start haha.

yes, I was aware of the bushings eventually failing. it was brought up by another member a week ago. I didn't even know it could fail so thank u guys for the heads up

there is no permanent alternative to the bushings?
some people swapped with Delrin bushings(or sth similar) --> this thread

dont know if it's legit....
