    Does the TDI have a dog bone as it seems to be only on the 1.8T engine?

    It is the mount at the base of the engine that helps resist the engine movement. You can get poly bushes like what I have at the moment to reduce this even more and it also gives a crisper gear change.

    Just need to find out if the TDI engine has them aswell, as I am getting one!

    ive told mike already but:

    Any 8l chassis be it a MkIV, A3/S3, Leon/Toledo, Octavia .etc all use dog bone mounts regardless of engine!
