Neuspeed Engine Torque Damper Bushings Volkswagen Golf IV 1.8T 98-06
Under hard acceleration, your entire engine and transmission actually rotates due to compliance in the factory bushings. While the soft factory bushings do a good job of damping engine vibration, they can also create a rubbery, vague response in the vehicles powertrain.
NEUSPEED offers a set of two polyurethane bushings to go into your cars lower engine torque arm. The torque arm connects the front subframe to the bottom of the cars transmission. With the NEUSPEED bushings installed, you cars throttle response will feel better and your shifts will feel more crisp and defined, especially on manual transmission cars.
Fits all 2.0L, 1.8T and VR6 engines found in the 1998-later Beetle, MkIV Golf & Jetta, and Audi TT.
Please note that polyurethane is not as compliant as rubber. As a result, you may notice a slight increase in ride harshess and engine vibration after installation.
