Got it, that makes sense now. My guess is you wouldn't feel or notice any difference, but might as well make it right while you're in there. Keep up the good work!

Got the motor aligned up and mounts built. I copied this design from a couple other people and added my own touches. I used 3/16 plate and .120 wall ERW tubing. The mounts are hydraulic passat BHW TDI mounts from a b5.5. The engine angle ended up at about 5 degrees, and the rear diff is about 6, so that should be good. Hopefully these dont get ripped apart. I know these mounts cannot survive in a quattro without a snub mount, but the force pulling up on them is much greater with the front axle outputs on a quattro trans. On a truck, the only real force should be the engine twisting counter clockwise. I dont want to do anything stiffer because the vibes from a 4 cylinder diesel are really bad with harder mounts.

Very nice! It should help not to twist/rotate under load with the mounts so far apart.

Thats kind of what I was thinking. They are about 25" center to center!

Well done. Looks legit. Decent welds too, should be plenty strong.

I added some additional bracing I added to try and relieve some of the stress off the top two bolts. I made it removable separately so the whole truss can easily come off in the truck to service the front of the engine. Just tack welded in these pics.

Nice addition.

Amazing what one can devise, with serviceability in mind from the outset! *looking at you, VAG.

Look at you getting fancy with your plastic tube caps! That’s a great idea for keeping junk from building up in there.

Looks great!

getting fancy with tube caps for sure! Still cant seem to make pretty welds, its kind of driving me nuts. I just dont have a stready hand. I've never had one fail, but they never look nice either.
