Australian Manufactured Polyurethane Engine Mount Sets To Suit GTi's.
Solid polyurethane with a two piece design for easy installation.
Available in 50, 60, 70, 72, 75, 80 and 90 Duro (A).
(OEM mounts I have measured are 60 duro but have large voids making them effectively much softer)
I am recomend 50 or 60 duro for modified street cars and lower power track cars.
Harder for your high HP applications.
Dimensions are listed following so you can determine whether they will suit your application. So far these mounts have been installed in quite a few Mk3 track and street cars with good success.
I have also found that the Right and Rear mounts will, with slight modification, fit front and rear mount positions on some front wheel drive Corollas that have a 4 mount system. And they have been used in G13B conversions in Minis. Perhaps you have another application they will work in?
Installation dimensions as follows -
Right Hand Side - Main bush dia 73.5mm, Main bush length 40mm, Flange dia 86mm, Flange thickness 15mm, Assembled width / crush tube length 70mm
Left Hand Side - Main bush dia 81mm, Main bush length 40mm, Flange dia 86mm, Flange thickness 8mm, Assembled width / crush tube length 56mm
Rear - Main bush dia 78mm, Main bush length 40mm, Flange dia 86mm, Flange thickness 8mm, Assembled width / crush tube length 56mm
All crush tube bores are 10mm clearance.
Flange thickness is such that all lateral movement is eliminated, unlike the OEM mounts which have a lot of side clearance and rely on a rubber washer as a "Bump Stop".
Please note that the following pictures show mount housings for illustration purposes only, and the crush tubes pictured are prototypes. Crush tubes are now poly for lighter weight and improved corrosion resistance.
Included in the kit is three pairs of bushes with crush tubes only.

Price:
214.50 AUD per set, including GST, plus shipping, for Australian orders.
195.00 AUD per set, excluding GST, plus shippng, for international orders.

jasstv GTi Steve Shale poly mounts SAM_3802.jpg
Steve supplied a set for us to test in the jasstv GTi

They are are well worth buying to minimise engine movement

many benifits ,minimizing axle tramp, stress on the gearbox

You will notice from the photo Steve has made the poly mounts wider to be fully supported in the chassis mount. Great design feature for reducing fore & aft movement

Cheers Steve

Any chance of making an Ignis Sport set, or just for the gear box mount to prevent engine movement?

Not economical unfortunately. The main driver for this project was that I wanted a set for myself. Offering the mounts for sale is just a way to try and recover some of the cost of the moulds. I posted the sizes so people can check out other potential fits they may work in. It is easy to "Under Pour" the casting and reduce the flange thickness if necessary. (This is what I did for one of the mounts used in the Corolla application). If you let me know the Ignis mount sizes I can have a look into your options.

Could you put them into a lathe & skim some material off?
Would give others who need them for other applications an option

Looked into this and the answer is unfortunately no.
These materials in the 50 to 80 duro on the A scale wont machine well.
Some of the harder materials do machine well, but if you were to use them you may as well make a solid metal insert.
The only thing I havent tried is carefully sanding it down, as it were, on a linishing belt.
This may give ok results, if a little unsightly.

Link to an under bonnet video of my car at Oakey Street sprints.
This car makes around 140whp and is running semi slick tyres in this video.
It is fitted with a set of 60 duro mounts.
Note that the mounts are still soft enough to absorb shock loads and help protect the driveline.
Also note that the torque damper you can see is not absorbing any torque reaction, it is set up to damp vibration.

Ever seen these in a machined billet of duro 70/90 instead of a pour?

Anything lesss than 90 is very hard to machine as a general rule.
It can be done with a very sharp tool, but the main challenge is actually holding the material in the chuck etc, due to distortion under the clamp load.
In some cases I guess you could rig up a supporting jig, but as with most of these things it is a matter of cost effectivness.
Not such an issue if you are just playing around with something for yourself of course....

Purchased the 2 front mounts in 70 duro and fitted them up today (already had a poly rear).
Steve was excellent to deal with and the product is very good quality. Makes it heaps easier to install with the split design and not needing a press. Thanks heaps 8)

Now also available 72 Duro (Light Blue) and 75 Duro (Dark Blue).
These fills the gap and allows for some fine tuning between the 70 and 80 Duro, which is where a lot of applications need to be for optimum performance.

Steve how do these compare in durometer to the super pro ones? I have all three mounts in the super pro range. It certainly fixed axle tramp but introduced a lot of vibration. Just interested. Perhaps a little softer rear mount or maybe the gearbox mount may help? Cheers.

The Superpro unit I originally measured was 90 duro. I believe they run the one material for all their suspension bushes etc as well. At the time I developed mine, they were offering only the rear mount and I didn't see it as a good engineering solution. I am currently giving my race car a make over which will involve less weight and more traction. So I am moving to 75 duro for it.

Thanks Steve. I'm just a bit concerned with the LSD and more power after the engine upgrade they might be too hard. I'll keep yours in mind and may even go for something a little softer on the rear mount (say 70) to allow at least a bit of movement. It's almost like it's hard mounted. If I ran the two hard mounts on the engine and box and the little bit softer mount on the back do you think that may be a solution to at least some of the vibes being transmitted...I really like the fact axle tramp is completely gone.

To be honest you don't feel any issues on the track at all at speed but it just seems very solid with no give.

I guess my basic theory is to go just hard enough to eliminate the axle tramp. I want to keep it as soft as I can beyond that to protect the drive line from shock loading as much as possible. And I want to spread the load correctly to the chassis to avoid point loading the rear mount which is susceptible to breaking out of the firewall. (Speaking from experience). The video below is my car with 60 duro mounts fitted and something like 180 wheel hp on slicks. Note a little tramp at the standing start and plenty of torque reaction in the engine still. Hence I'm going to firm it up a little.

I watched the vid. I'm no where near that power. (NA) yes I see yours does need firming up a bit. Mine definitely needs softening. Do you think just softening the rear mount for a start? If I leave the 90 durometer SP on the front what durometer would you try on the rear mount?
I might make 100 ATW.
Cheers?

Swift12 I would probably try a 60 duro in the rear and see how it behaves. As it takes the bulk of the torque reaction it should hopefully provide the protection you need.
For both yourself and Bewitched Gti though I have to say I conceived the mounts to work as a set.
So swapping in just one you will have to assess the results of and see if it is doing what you require.
Individually they are $65 AU each excluding Aussie GST and shipping.
I have been doing free postage within Australia for complete set orders.

Hi,
Sorry if I missed you.You are correct I am not on here that often, too many hobbies...
My alternate contact details are listed in the first post in this thread.

I still make and stock the mounts.
Right now I have in stock ready for immediate dispatch -
1 x set of 50 duro
2 x sets of 60 duro
2 x sets of 70 duro
1 x set of 75 duro
Typically takes a week or two to make anything else you need.
