And if it's mounted so tightly that it doesn't move, then you and your passengers will be the ones who move!! Vibrate to kingdom come!

Don't see why not JPC?, I don't see any engine specific details on the sales blurb - ask Awesome?

I got an ECS one fitted to mine on Friday during its pre-track checks. I have noticed the tiniest bit of vibration when in slow traffic and just using DSG's crawl (i.e. just lifting off the brake and not giving any throttle) but other than that nothing else. Launching is more positive and it blends nicely with my other mods.

Seal of approval here.
Sideways yo!

It's definitely a good bang for the buck but needs moar stiffness (that's what she said)

i think we all have to admit that not all our mods produce good results per £ ?    i fitted the new speed version a while back and think its the best mod so far , you can really feel the difference , if your thinking about getting one ....... just do it  :happy2:

I put the ECS insert in my GTI last week.  I'm enjoying having little to no wheelhop.  I needed to change my oil anyway so I figured I'd pick one of these up & have a go at it.   Simple install, effective results! :happy2:

....

The only reason I fitted one was to protect my exhaust mounts but I can't tell any real difference in traction etc.

Lube it up and stick it in there. It's quite tight, so you may need to use a fair amount of force. Really ram it in there and wedge it home.

This should help. It is for the Neuspeed one but still applies.
