034 Motorsports Billet Aluminum MQB Dogbone Mount Insert

Anyone have this?

I'm curious to the fact it's not poly like the others. Thoughts?

I have it. Really nice piece with quality construction. Considerably less vibrations than any poly insert(I've tried a couple). Still get very crisp shifts. I have awd, so I can't comment on wheel hop, but overall I definitely recommend it

I'm guessing you have this insert, Furious?

I'm not concerned with hop. Stage 2 eliminated that for me 9000kms ago lol. I just want one that doesn't wear out like poly, gives some proper feel back into the cabin (like my current CTS one) whilst minimizing NVH. That said, I'm looking into BFI engine and tranny mouths when someone decides to put them on sale for Thanksgiving or Black Friday haha.

Just curious as they broke away from the normal poly insert and used alum.

I have it. I'm quite happy with it, no issues, but there is increased NVH, but nothing too annoying. The engine sounds raspier too.

Great to hear! How does it have less NVH when it's more solid/rigid than the Poly inserts other companies have (65, 70, 85 durometer ratings)?

I thought the harder the unit, the more NVH?

Pardon the noobness

Have you previously tried other inserts to compare? My CTS (which is 65a) does increase my NVH, but I'm ok with it. It will lessen (and feel more solid) once I add my motor and tranny mounts.

Yes I have it...over a 1000 miles on it already.

No, I have not tried any other inserts.

034 Motorsports Billet Aluminum MQB Dogbone Mount Insert

I ordered one of the poly ones, it came in, and literally that day I read about this 034 one and saw how highly people were talking of it in regards to not compromising their ride quality while still giving performance. I shipped my poly one back and bought this.

Lol installed it yesterday, it's great! Supposed to last the life of the car as well. Another thing you can't say about the poly ones.

Thanks all!

I will add this to my BFI mounts wishlist

Quesbster, do you have this insert only?

Just installed mine yesterday. Only increase in NVH I've noticed is on initial start up, and I'm DSG so sometimes from a dead stop when releasing the brake and the gear is engaged there's slightly more vibration. Totally daily driveable though, absolutely no complaints.

Got my first chance today to test out how it does in preventing wheel hop. I set ESC to completely off and went WOT from a standstill, absolutely no wheel hop whatsoever.

Got mine installed this morning. Had to grab a POS torque wrench as I just noticed the two I have don't go high enough-- gotta fix that and I hate buying twice!

Pretty simple install. Mount slid right in with no struggle.
Took a 45 minute drive with mixed Bay Area stop and go and some open roads. Can definitely notice vibration from stop to first. Really livable, It feels just like I didn't give it enough gas. In fact a few times I naturally floored it thinking I was going to bog out

The payoff from 1st-2nd outweighs any light vibrations for me. No more 1-2 pogo stick feel!!

Anyway I'm a happy customer and glad I waited for this 034 solution!!!!

So great to hear! I'll definitely get this.

Anyone (Kyle_A3 aside) have this with engine and tranny mounts too? Is the car just that much more solid?
