AKMS avoided saying anything about eliminating the snubber mount. Just to reinforce the transmission tunnel and ditch the front transmission mounts. I’m opting to utilize all the mounts including the snubber

Hey guys. I’m sitting here pondering how to go about doing up the tunnel. Is the tunnel one layer of sheet metal or two? I’ve got an idea but it’s easier if it’s one layer where the 4 holes need to be drilled.

I've run a couple different setups without a snub. My '89 10vt Avant used mustang trans mounts for motor mounts and no snubber. Didn't make a ton of power but I used to launch the shit out of it constantly and never saw any signs of anything moving.

More recently I ditched the snub in my 1.8t B6. This thing doesn't make much for torque, but it made 330whp in this video. It uses homemade semi-solid (hockey puck) engine mounts, stock single trans mount, and has very little engine movement:



I honestly think the snub is only really there so that they could run comfortable (super soft) engine mounts. You might need it if you're shooting for the moon power-ways, or are planning on tracking the car REALLY aggressively, but even then I'm not sure it's really necessary.

Nice! So that's where that fancy mount goes that we gave you for Christmas! Now I know where it goes and how things are coming together!
