    Pipewerx downpipe/de-cat

    Hello guys, car is having the above fitted in Jan for its stage 2. I've looked in the stickies for info and only found xs power stuff. Apologies if i've missed it. The question I have is do I need to change to an uprated dog bone engine mount? If yes, why? Where can I get one from and how will it affect the drive?

    Thanks in advance. I bought the part through Awesome and nothing was mentioned about the uprated mount but I have read this elsewhere. Could somebody please confirm?

    Thanks, is the ride affected with the new mount? I'm guessing its smaller then. Was there rubbing issues on the standard mount and where did you buy the uprated one from?

    Am sure you can get them off the Awesome website they are not very expensive, your choice is wether to go for a red one or yellow, there is much debate as to which is better. I personally have had no problems with the stiffer yellow one.

    Thanks for your help. I've never used their website, I always phone to discuss my plans. Red or yellow! That's another decision to make! Ha ha, I haven't a clue! Lol

    The yellow one isn't limited to track use... it was the only one they did at the time and is no differnt to poly bushing the whole car... there are a few more vibrations but its not going to turn it into a bone shaker at all...

    The red one is designed for diesels and is therefore a little softer as diesel engine inherently have more vibrations anyway...

    I have run a yellow dogbone bush and uprated engine mounts for years and there is no loss of comfort...

    The yellow bushes need to settle is all... most people complain they vibrate like mad when first fitted which they do then it settles down...
