Polyurethane motor mount inserts improve your shifts and soften wheel hop by greatly reducing overall engine movement. These Stage 2 inserts from Black Forest Industries are designed to stiffen the Mk4 transmission torsion mount, also known as the "dogbone mount" due to its characteristic shape. We highly recommend these mounts to anyone and everyone who is running an aftermarket exhaust system.

You may not currently be experiencing vibration issues with your OEM exhaust, but excessive engine movement is wearing on your flex section and exhaust hangers. Flex section failure is one of the most common reasons enthusiasts upgrade their exhaust.

When you bolt-on a proper aftermarket exhaust system you'll find that same range of engine movement is an audible problem. To prevent your exhaust from vibrating against heatshields during acceleration you must reduce engine movement.

Black Forest's Stage 2 inserts are for the enthusiast who is looking for maximum performance from his motor mounts. These mounts are optimized for heavily modified street cars and track cars. Expect a noticeable increase in noise, vibration and harshness when adding Stage 2 mounts to your vehicle.

    Stage 2 Dogbone Poly Mounts

    Published by James on Mar 1st 2019

    Another kick ass product offered by 42DD, this is the Black Forest Industries dogbone mount inserts that offer little to no engine/trans movement while upshifting/ downshifting . I do however, highly recommend getting the complete Stage 2 kit for the MKIV GTI 1.8t, the dogbone does seem to work well but I am currently waiting on the complete kit (engine/trans mounts) If you are upgrading your downpipe and exhaust, this is necessary to keep your exhaust from rattling on the rear beam. If you are still experiencing some rattles going on while starting out in 1st gear then I'd suggest attaching a hose clamp to the exhaust hanger closest to the beam, this will raise the exhaust enough to clear the beam. ( I do have a Miltek Non-Resonated catback exhaust and it may be different than the 42DD catback system, but if you are experiencing a rattle, a $2 hose clamp can solve the problem.)
