Powerflex Heritage Range - Mazda MX5, Saab, BMW, Manta B, Cortina
Heritage Collection - Expanded Range

Powerflex BMW E32 & E34 rear differential mounting bushes
BMW E32 & E34 REAR DIFF MOUNTS

Fast, well made and reliable, the BMW E34 5 Series is a wonderful testament to the German car makers manufacturing prowess. But as it heads towards modern classic status it is not as firm as when BMW released it going on for 30 yrs ago.

With that in mind, this week sees Powerflex release some important and often overlooked parts for the BMW E34 5-Series and E32 7-Series.

PFR5-631 Rear Diff Front Mounting Bush

PFR5-632 Rear Diff Rear Mounting Bush

As direct replacements for the original rubber units, these new bushes reduce movement in the differential preventing the commonly experienced rear-end transmission ‘thud’ whilst offering improved performance and durability.

As with all of our Road Series parts, these new differential bushes are covered by our Lifetime Warranty for the ultimate fit-and-forget peace of mind.

These parts are also available in our Black Series for those looking for a Track / Competition option.

September sees an important addition for the frequently replaced part for BMW second-generation X3 F25 and X4 F26 crossovers.

PFF5-2201 Front Radius Arm To Chassis Bush

Often a cause for complaint and our reason for development, wear to the factory fitted radius arm bushes can result in uneven tyre wear, vague steering and braking instability.

Supplied with metal outer shells for better distribution of load across the bush, fitting our 95A durometer replacement ensures lasting improvements over the original rubber bush to restore and improve handling characteristics and steering precision.

Powerflex Engine Mount for Ford Fiesta Mk7
FORD FIESTA MK 6 & 7
 
Powerflex, the go-to brand for replacement polyurethane suspension bushes and engine mounts for Ford’s ‘hot hatch’ models.

This week sees us release a new engine mount for the ever-popular Ford Fiesta MK6 & 7, replacing the round and older superseded oval mounts.

Combining a new CNC machined aluminium lower torque mount with various durometer options to suit differing states of tune, this is a great way to reduce the amount of engine movement during hard acceleration and gear changing. It’s also super easy to replace – just two bolts and it’s out with the old, in with the new and no pressing out of any rubber!

The options are,

PFF19-2020 Lower Engine Mount Bracket & Bushes (Yellow 70A) is 50% stiffer than the OE mount and recommended for fast road use for standard or mildly tuned cars.

PFF19-2020P Lower Engine Mount Bracket & Bushes (Purple 80A) is 100% stiffer than OE and recommended for higher powered cars used on the road/track.

PFF19-2020BLK Lower Engine Mount Bracket & Bushes (Black 95A) is a huge 400% stiffer than OE and available in our Black Series for hard Track and Motorsport use.

These products are considered an upgrade and therefore increased NVH should be expected.

Mini JCW and Cooper S - PFF5-122
This month sees the release a new gearbox mount insert for the Gen 1 Mini R52 & R53 Cooper S & John Cooper Works models.

PFF5-122 Gearbox Mount Insert

Connecting the gearbox housing to transmission support bracket, the original rubber mount features heavy voiding which perishes and cracks over time resulting in excessive engine and gearbox movement when accelerating or changing gear.

Fitting an insert into these voids is a quick, easy and reversible way to improve throttle response and gear changes by providing greater engine stability without increased NVH as normally associated with more expensive aftermarket full replacement mounts.

These parts are also available in our 95A durometer Black Series range for those looking for a Track / Competition option.

Powerflex | Renault Clio 172 182 | Suspension Bushes and Mounts
Renault Clio 172 & 182 Sport 
 
This week we are adding to our suspension bush range for the awesome Renault Clio 172 & 182 Sport.

PFF60-1120 Front Strut Top Mount

Worn top mounts can lead to notchy steering, unusual noises, and wayward handling, whilst affecting the ride height by allowing the shock to sit slightly further up inside the suspension turret.

Made in our purple Road Series 80A or Black Series 95A durometer material, our top mounts restore ride-height and precision making them the perfect upgrade when changing springs and dampers.

PFR60-332 Rear Spring Seat Isolator Pads

Over time, the factory spring seat rubbers soften and lose their ability to isolate the suspension springs from the vehicle’s body. This can generate unwanted road noise through the vehicle and influence spring force.

By fitting our uprated 95A durometer isolator pads, you’re future-proofing this part of the suspension system and ensuring minimal NVH transfer between the spring and body.

EXH034 Exhaust Mounting Bush & Bracket 
EXH035 Exhaust Mounting Bush & Bracket

The bush supplied is made using our Red 65A durometer material, which is approx. 15% stiffer than a rubber mount ensuring position, height and movement control. They are also offered in our 95A Black Series material for those wanting the ultimate in exhaust control for Track / Competition use.

To fit 1-4 Series models and Mini F56, we are also offering two new replacement mounts to swap out for the ageing original rubbers.

Seat Mii, Skoda Citigo, and VW Up new release from Powerflx
Spring 2019 sees a new bushing kit for our fun city cars, the Seat Mii, Skoda Citigo, and VW Up!
The PFR85-1910 Rear Beam Mounting Bush will help stabilise rear handling. 
As with many small front wheel drive cars, worn rear beam bushes can lead to abnormal tyre wear patterns and unbalanced rear handling due to promoting a rear steer effect. This gives a impression of unpredictability because you steer at the front and expect the vehicle to do one thing, but the worn bushes have their own ideas and let the beam stray changing how the car behaves while cornering. These Powerflex bushes are designed to shore up the rear beam with a controlled amount of radial twist, keeping the rear end stable whilst allowing the rear wheels to turn in, helping to boost the handling of your car.

Lowered and modified Mini benefits from new suspension kit
This week its all about the Mini, specifically the lowered Mini, as new geometry correction kits  are announced for R50, R52 and R53 Gen 1 Mini’s. The PFF5-131g Roll Centre Adjuster will positively impact the handling and suspension geometry. It acts to reduce body roll on lowered cars where the front wishbone has shifted causing compression in suspension. 
The new PFF5-131g fitted to generation 1 Mini - R50 R52 R53
The kit contains a 5mm spacer for tuning tweaks and to accommodate varying ride heights and wheel sizes. Also included are longer, stronger bolts to allow for the additional thickness of the ball joint assembly – the ball joint is NOT included.

BMW - Powerflex Engine Mount
BMW ENGINE MOUNT
Powerflex are always seeking to innovate and develop new parts to improve and enhance our portfolio of products.
Over the last few years, the increase in popularity of our engine mount inserts has made us aware of the lack of performance engine mounts suitable for both street and track use.
Listening to market feedback from BMW owners initially, the focus was to supply a replacement for the oil-filled, often soft and torn mount that wouldn’t ruin the street driving experience by compromising NVH transmission, but would improve and increase engine control.
Not an easy task, but a challenge we were happy to accept!

After many months of development, we are pleased to be releasing
PFF5-4650, our ‘tuneable’ Engine Mount.
