Just wondering at what stage you would need to consider upgrading the engine mount etc?
When it moves more than it should.
I noticed at Stg2+ that there was a bit of a clonking sound changing gear when accelerating hard,and that's a good indicator of the mounts being either worn,or not being up to the job.
Mine were changed for a set of VWR(Vibratechnics) fast road mounts.
Those are pretty hard,but not as nasty as solid mounts,which I'd say are pretty harsh for road use.
The THS mounts are a good choice also.
Polytek Poly PT Flex 60 Fast Cure - Shore A60 Polyurethane Rubber - 1kg Kit | eBay is a good idea, uses your own mounts comes in varies weights depends on your needs.
It's certainly cheaper than a proper set of uprated engine mounts,but not something I'd use personally.
Thanks yeah I read a few posts that said mounts at stage 2+ stage 3
whats the cabin noise like with VWR?
Really not noticeably worse,but there is more transmitted engine vibration as you'd expect,but again nothing awful.
I got THS mounts installed when I was Stage 2 (because I could hear the Milltek banging the bottom of the car on hard upshifts) - slight increase in cabin vibration but absolutely worth it.
My plan is stage 2 at the moment and was looking around and happened to come across revos mount kit, don't hear much people talking about replacing them tho? How many of the engine mounts maybe need replacing ? I might go stage 3 if I have the money so maybe something I should consider

Would that mounting kit do the job? Wantig to do my car proper jjust all the little things like the mounts I am keeping my car long term as I really like it so am a bit fussy with it specially with getting servieced etc lol
Ideally the lot should be replaced,especially if you have a long term plan for Stg3.
Revo's kit is as good as any out there,and is the same as the BSH kit.
I'm definitely upgrading the knocking I'm getting is quite bad on up shift. Is it just a case of upgrading the mounts or is there other equipment required?
When I say stage 3 I mean shark but I doubt ill manage it next year something ill prob do tho is it a hard job? Time consuming ?
I went with THS top mounts and then a powerflex insert on the bottom mount, rather than replacing it. Well, in fairness I did the powerflex first, then the THS when I was still getting knocking. As Alex says, probably best to do all 3 if you're starting from scratch.
Can't comment on labour time, this was one job I had the garage do for me while it was in for a service.
wouldn't mind knowing this too.
Heres a link to the revo item
Revo Technik Engine Mount 2.0 TFSI | eBay
Revo. Revo Engine Mount Set am I best just getting this kit instead and replacing them all?
THS FR3 Complete Engine Mounting System - Golf Mk5/Mk6 Type Chassis - S3 (8P) - Audi - Shop By Car will this mount kit also be good ? Read few reviews on it and these ones seem to be good? Revo ones will end up costing more and if these can do the same job then means I can put more money towards something els like cooler or that?
THS was the item of choice until Revo and Vibratechnics appeared,so there are plenty of people who've used that,with no issues.
Thanks ill see what money I have got when the time comes need my clutch and coilovers first before anything
