Re: vibrations from motor with Petroworks 16v kit
I too have the 16v PW kit and did experience the additional vibrations that you mention. First off get the header off the frame. If yours is like mine, I had VERY tight clearance on the header side... in fact, under hard acceleration the header would hit the frame and send a 'clunk' along with the vibes. Just take a grinder and mark the area and give yourself a little more room to move in there.
Secondly, I found that the mounts are extremely stiffer fore/aft and must be very tight. I loosened up the plates at the base of the mounts, and retightened the rubbers as tight as I could get them, then retighted the plates.... problem solved... [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
