Anyone using the Powerflex hybrid dogbone puck?

You have to remove the pendulum mount too. It's no big deal. Note the 2 bolts holding it in are different lengths. Make sure the right ones go back in the right spots.

Yes, you cut it out. Hacksaw like this works.
I bought new bolt for the dogbone. Do I need to buy new bolts for the pendulum mount or I can reuse them?

Depends on if the bolts look like crap from driving around in salt. If they look good hit em with a wirebrush and put em back in.

I don’t recall removing my pendulum arm. Just cut the insert, arm sits above it.
Yeah, I only had to cut out the bushing. One bolt out, new bolt in, torqued to spec. The bolt is TTY, so it's a good idea to replace it.

Thanks everyone for the info. Was thinking might as well replace the pendulum mount if I have to remove it. Guess I'll hold off on buying the pendulum mount lol.

Stock is fine once you go Powerflex. Get BFI mounts instead.
I just got the BFI engine/trans mount installed. I was expecting much more NVH when I got the BFI mounts installed paired with the 034 dogbone insert but I can barely feel anything. Will be putting the powerflex in this weekend along with the rear subframe harmonic damper.

I recently add powerflex standard insert and ebay pendulum arm to replace 034 lower insert only. idling and reversing is similar to 034 insert. However once A/C is on, it does add a bit more vibration on cold start. but when it gets warm, everything is smoother, no to little vibration similar. however car does performance much better than with 034 only
