This week we bring you a new transmission mount insert for vehicles using Audi‘s C7 platform with the DSG or ZF 8-Speed gearbox, including A6 Quattro (2011 – 2018), RS6 (2012 – 2018), S6 (2012 – 2018), A7 Quattro (2010 – 2017), RS7 (2013 – 2017), S7 (2012 – 2017), Q7 (2015 on), A8 (2010 – 2017), Q8 (2019 on), plus VW Touareg (2018 on).
Designed to fill the voiding in the OE rubber mount, it smooths out gear changes by stiffening the often perished bonded rubber bush providing a more precise and settled transmission response during acceleration and deceleration.
PFF3-726R Lower Engine Mount Insert is made in our softest Red 65A durometer material, specifically for Diesel models, helping to limit NVH transmission.
PFF3-726 Lower Engine Mount Insert is made in our Yellow 70A durometer material for increased transmission mount longevity and performance.
PFF3-726BLK Lower Engine Mount Insert is made in our hardest Black 95A durometer material for heavily tuned vehicles and track use for maximum strength and response.
It’s also a simple and easy-to-fit upgrade with the transmission mount bush accessible from underneath the vehicle by simply undoing 2-bolts.
A small increase in NVH, usually at idle, should be expected when stiffening the connecting mount between the engine/transmission and chassis. The harder the material used, the greater the NVH transmitted.
