This week sees us release a new gearbox mount insert for the Gen 1 Mini R52 & R53 Cooper S & John Cooper Works models
PFF5-122 Gearbox Mount Insert
Connecting the gearbox housing to transmission support bracket, the original rubber mount features heavy voiding which perishes and cracks over time resulting in excessive engine and gearbox movement when accelerating or changing gear.
Fitting an insert into these voids is a quick, easy and reversible way to improve throttle response and gear changes by providing greater engine stability without increased NVH as normally associated with more expensive aftermarket full replacement mounts.
These parts are also available in our 95A durometer Black Series range for those looking for a Track / Competition option.
