    Hello all, I tried doing a search for this but all of the information is scattered and varying. I have a 1.8tqs, I've bought a new engine and gearbox mount, what bolts do I need to order? Part numbers and quantities? Also what torque + turns do they need to be tightened down to?

    Thanks in advance :arco:

    Just give TPS a call in the morning to get a price and quantity you need for the bolts

    Hello people, just an update, I reused the old bolts, not ideal I know but no one had them in stock and TPS was too far. I torqued them to the correct specs, they seem fine, used plusgas to ease them out. I used Lemfoerder mounts that I ordered from GSF and have replaced the dog bone mount bush with a red polybush. It drives better but the engine still rocks quite a bit and makes noise when turning off which is what I was hoping to cure. Any ideas on whats wrong? Could the engine mounts be too soft compared to the dog mount?
