    If I remember,the VWRacing ones were about £500 all in,so not cheap but very solid.

    If you weren't going the whole Stg3/4 hog,the THS set are cheaper and effective.

    For any Stg2+ or above engine I think you need one or other of these to deal with the engine flapping around on the standard mounts.

    But....do be prepared for a lot more engine thrash.

    Fast road mounts.....they're pretty hard but the race ones are solid.

    You really won't want those.....my Escort had solid mounts and it's like being a passenger in a cement mixer.

    Interesting.

    The only thing that would concern me is the bit about them being tested with a 280bhp car.

    The VWRACING/Vibratechnics mounts are very solid things.

    Steel...bit heavier and better for damping vibrations.

    There was a problem with the first one they sent with tolerances on the splines so I'm waiting on a new one.

    Thanks.

    I'll have some feedback on the clutch soon as the replacement part has arrived and will be going in shortly along with full boost.
