VF-Engineering Lower Rear Engine Mount - Ford Focus Duratec 2.0L 08-11SKU: FS044
VF-Engineering Lower Rear Engine Mount - Ford Focus 2008-2011
Billet / Polyurethane Engine 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 10-15 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).

If you're like me this install will take about an hour wiggling and hammering, but with any kind of tools or knowledge I bet it's as easy as these other reviews make it seem. If you're in Canada it takes about a month to get here at the moment, pleasantly surprised that I didn't have to pay duties though. So far I notice at idle sometimes there is more vibration, but it goes away once you get moving (and they warn you as much about the nature of these poly mounts). The accel and decel feels much smoother, the car doesn't lurch at all on shifts anymore and it feels so nice. Well worth the money.
Super easy to install. Noticeable difference in shifting in a good way.
Very happy with this product. DIY'ers, note it is a very tight fit. Couldn't put it in with the car on Ramps or Jacks. Needed to use buddy's pit. A hoist would work too. NO increased vibrations, not even at idle. My other mounts are good, though.
I love the this mount I'm will be soon buying the other 2 for my car
I put this on my ’08 Focus, and from the first time driving it after installing, I could tell the difference. There is an almost annoying amount of vibration at low idle speeds, but once you take off, it fades out. Even in an ATX, the shifts feel crisper and cleaner, with a lot less jerkiness. My only complaint is not having put one on earlier.
MADE A BIG CHANGE IN SHIFTING (MANUAL). MORE POSITIVE BY FAR. SLIGHT VIBRATION WHEN IDLE FALLS BELOW 850 RPM AT A STOP. BUT THE NEW PROGRAMER FROM FSWEKS WILL BE SET TO JUST UNDER 1000 RPMS AND CURE THAT LITTLE QUIRK. THANKS GUYS FOR ALL YOUR HELP
Bought for 2010 Ford Focus SEL along with OEM Ford engine and transmission mount. The difference amazed me even after reading the reviews. This lower engine torque mount does provide a little vibration from the engine (still in first 100 miles of usage) but allows the engine to deliver power smoothly and instantly. Wife noticed how smooth everything was and felt the car handled far better, was exceptionally tight, and even had more power. Maybe just a perception, but I could feel it too. No engine surge or lag other than getting the little engine to provide torque. Decel is smooth, transmission shift is smooth and direct. I have to think this part will help the rest of the engine last longer by eliminating so much shock force on accel and decel. Well worth every penny and install was fast and smooth with or without the enclosed directions (which includes torque for bolts).
So I installed the lovely torque mount and I gotta say it's amazing how the feel is between the shifting now it's one of the best thing you can buy for you focus if you like driving it like a hot little car!! I give it a A++++
Installed all 3 mounts and made car much smoother to drive, vibrations were minimal, no more clunking sound when i hit bumps, highly recommended!!!
