VF-Engineering Drivers Side Engine Mount - Ford Focus SPI / Zetec / SVT / DuratecSKU: FS048
Billet / Polyurethane Engine/Trans Mounts
The Ford Focus factory engine mounts were designed as soft, flexible units, to provide a comfortable drive. The drawback was the relatively large amount of engine movement the OEM mounts allowed under torque load and on hard acceleration. Such engine movement decreases stability under high performance driving conditions and rapid gear selection.
To reduce this movement VF-Engineering engineered a complete fitted replacement with specially shaped molded, 70A durometer polyurethane inserts. The mount body is machined from billet aircraft grade aluminum, being almost twice as strong than the OE cast material. Installation should take no more than 20 minutes. This high performance mount provides a difference in the stability of the car when accelerating and braking hard. Gear changing under hard acceleration is also enhanced.
NOTE: For street use, we recommend using only the rear engine mount. Using all mounts together will cause some vibration (due to the nature of performance polyurethane mounts) that may not be desired for a daily driver, and is more for track use (Road racing, drag racing, autocross, etc).
Fitment: (Fits manual and auto trans cars)

give it time
This was really violent the first time I started the car I thought I had broken something and wasted money but after a couple of weeks it has just a little vibration no more than a big block. I did install a dog bone and now I will replace the passenger mount they say not to but I think it will get even better.
My experience on the item, is that the gear shift soft and responsive on each gear. I highly recommend this to those who own a 08-11 ford focus.
This product gave me just what I was looking for! Shifts are much smoother, no more third gear grind. Gives a little vibration when taking off but cruising around you wouldn’t be able to tell it is there!
A little stiff but feel more power
It will add a bit of vibrations but not as bad as I thought it would be. Keeps the transmission in place much better when paired with other poly mounts. Fit perfectly no issue.
This Product does exactly waht I was looking for. To firmly plant my engine down and to eliminate some of the engine torquing that goes on when driving. Minimal vibration increase.
Excellent service and fast delivery. The mounts themselves are great, I have all three mounts and the car vibrates more than with just the rear mount and a lot more than stock. I haven’t had the chance to take it on a long road trip yet but I wouldn’t doubt if it makes your butt numb after a while. Commuting to work, short trips, and some autocross duty have proven these mounts are worth all the vibration. Having the fswerks turbo kit my wheels want to spin and jump a lot and putting all three mounts on drastically decreased the wheel hop and increased my traction and feel. I have way more confidence in my focus off the line and everywhere else now bc of these mounts.
Fast and helpful as always
Get the trio!
Have all 3 VF Eng. mounts keeps the engine planted and minimal movement. Daily driven car and the vibrations are fine as long as you set them to where they aren’t in a bind also make sure you follow the instructions and use loctite. all in all I’m sad I didn’t get them sooner.
Its amazing how much different my Focus accelerated and cornered after installing thiis mount. I highly recommend it.
Pain to get on but
Pain to get on but glad I did it
I use this for my track car and it works great!!!
These guys sell good parts at a good price, love their products
I have all three mounts on my 03 svt focus.take off and shifts are way firmer.Inside of the car does shake a little bit at idle but doesn't bother me.
5 star upgrade
Installed all 3 mounts and made car much smoother to drive, vibrations were minimal, no more clunking sound when i hit bumps, highly recommended
