034Motorsport Motor Mounts, Street Density Line - B8/B8.5 Audi A4/A5/Q5 2.0 TFSI
Street Density Engine Mounts for the B8/B8.5 Audi A4/A5/Q5 2.0 TFSI are now available! These mounts are a performance upgrade over the factory A4/A5/Q5 mounts, manufactured with 45 durometer rubber damping medium to limit unwanted noise and vibration transfer into the cabin on 2.0 TFSI equipped vehicles.
034Motorsport's Density Line Mounts are the new standard in comfort and performance. 034's mounts are redesigned with performance in mind, and manufactured from high-durometer rubber for increased performance and durability, without sacrificing comfort. Density Line Mounts are void-free and fluid-free, eliminating the slop and the possibility of leakage and collapse associated with the factory mounts. The mount bodies are made from high quality cast aluminum using OEM production techniques and employ emulators to replicate the electronics of the factory engine mounts for plug-and-play installation. This ensures MIL-free operation for cars equipped with active engine mounts.
Density Line Mounts are manufactured from high-durometer rubber instead of polyurethane for a number of reasons. While vulcanized rubber mounts are more expensive to prototype due to the complexity of manufacturing and high initial tooling costs, rubber is inherently better than polyurethane as a damping medium for mounts and bushings. Rubber is able to deal with stress under both tension and compression, while polyurethane mounts rely on the damping medium to be effective only under compression. Rubber is also excellent in shear, where polyurethane is ineffective, making it ideal for applications that apply a shear force to the bushing during articulation. Rubber does not pack and wear like polyurethane does, which ultimately results in a long-lasting part with consistent performance and comfort.
