SuperPro Volkswagen Golf MK7 GTi/R4 Engine Mount Kit
Chassis and suspension specialist SuperPro has introduced an uprated engine mount kit for the Volkswagen Golf MK7 MQB chassis that controls excessive engine movement. Including upper, lower and pendulum mounts, this SuperPro engine mount kit is a great way to increase driver control and performance.
The Australian manufacturer has released a comprehensive catalogue of upgrade parts for Golf MK7 GTI and R4 models, to allow discerning owners to improve feedback and precision of their car. This 4-piece engine mount kit drastically reduces engine movement without sacrificing ride quality or inducing NVH into the car’s road manners. Until now, even the very best of performance aftermarket engine mount kits had brought significant noise, vibration, and harshness into the cabin of the vehicle, but many felt that this was worth living with to overcome the shortcomings of the OEM mounts. SuperPro has addressed all of these issues with its design however, offering high levels of refinement, balanced with optimum performance.
Designed to minimise the noise and vibrations in the cabin, OEM rubber mounts allow a high degree of movement and get worn fairly quickly. Many aftermarket mounts will do a great job at reducing this engine movement but not without detriment to comfort. SuperPro offers the perfect alternative with its unique polyurethane formulation. The kit offer more progression than some of its harsher rivals, meaning that noise, vibration and harshness levels are kept very close to OEM starting points, creating a car that involves, without ever being intrusive. The main dynamic advantages of this new kit is that it will mitigate wheel-hop, ensure more accurate and precise gear changes and maximise efficient power transfer without increased cabin noise, shaking mirrors and interior rattles.
The kit fits all engine variants of the Golf MK7 listed below and is a direct replacement for the OEM parts. Although aimed squarely at the fast-road driver, the kit’s capabilities have been proven beyond doubt in many Time Attack championships and rally series. Despite these impeccable race credentials, the SuperPro bushes manage to walk a very fine line between track-day precision and everyday usability – making them perfect for the car that needs to lead a dual existence between being a track toy and a daily driver.
This latest addition means that almost all OE bushes on the Volkswagen Golf MK7 can now be replaced with SuperPro equivalents.
