    the 1st mod of the day

    well I could not sleep so i went got some tools an went for a Drive to work why work some of you will ask
    they have a nice heated garage with pits to put the car over

    i have a lower engine mount so i fitted that 3 mins getting the tools out takes longer then the fitting

    you dont have to use a jack under the engine as it has 3 mounts an your only taking one off for a short time

    nice one danny, is that a powerflex one yeah?

    Do these not cause damage to the engine as it cannot flex? or are they good for performance?

    So you went to work in the early hours of the morning to fit an engine mount !!

    Extreme modding!!

    me i got it from LMF when i picked up the zaffy a few weeks ago
    me i had the car over the pit No need to use a block of wood to hold the engine as the other 2 mounts are fine
    it was like a 2min job getting my tools out of the boot and walking down the pit 45 foot long under a Bus was longer then the fitting DEAD easy
    clean the engine mount out with Carbcleaner to clean the road crap out

    That pit is really wide too - I'd be worried of driving off the edge!!

    Darryl fitted mine at PVS on grass in about 10 mins. It is definitely a worthwhile accessory!!
    0-60 in 6.5 secs and 48mpg- winner!

    Easy unless you have a very late GSi. Mine had a revised VX bush in. Had to chop some bits off the powerflex to make it fit. Still a quick job though
    Be Happy
