With little to no information on 1998-2010 motor mounts
I'm here to see what i can figure out.

Ive been told that the engine mounting brackets are the same on all bodys
mk3 mk4 mk5 meaning the VR6 1.8 1.9L and 2.0T are the same brackets
Correct me if i am wrong.

Just looking for some insight based on a swap option..

Thanks in Advance.

Modifications to the car or engine aren’t necessary if you make your own mounts, or you can purchase them premade. Here’s one example…
