This week sees us release a new lower torque mount for the ever-popular Mini R56, replacing the softer rubber voided OE mount that is prone to cracking, allowing for excessive engine movement and wheel hop.
Combining a CNC machined aluminium lower torque mount with various durometer bush options to suit differing states of tune, it’s a great way of reducing engine movement for more balanced on/off throttle handling while improving gear shifting precision. It’s also super easy to replace – just two bolts and it’s out with the old, in with the new and no pressing out of any rubber!
The options are,
PFF5-220 Lower Torque Mount Bracket & Bush (Yellow 70A and Purple 80A) is 300% stiffer than the worn OE mount and recommended for fast road use for standard or mildly tuned cars.
PFF5-220P Lower Torque Mount Bracket & Bush (Purple 80A) is 400% stiffer than OE and recommended for higher powered cars used on the road/track.
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.
