Important Fitment Note
If your car is still equipped with OEM engine/transmission/dogbone mounts fitment issues may arise. As these vehicles age, OEM mounts tend to sag due to the weight of the engine and transmission hanging from the rubber mounts. This may cause the downpipe to make contact with the rear subframe. It is HIGHLY recommended that you replace your engine and transmission mounts to avoid fitment issues and potential rattles. Replacing the dogbone mount is a good start, but it will not always fix the issue if the motor is hanging too low. Note that some aftermarket motor mounts may slightly change the engine location which could affect exhaust alignment.
This turbo-back is known to fit the following vehicles:
- Professional installation is highly recommended.
- 1999-2005 VW Mk4 Golf, Jetta, GTI 1.8T, 2.0, VR6, TDI
Polyurethane transmission mount inserts are HIGHLY recommended for this application.
