Turbo Tech Racing has just released a new upper right & lower mount for the Veloster N. Both units make an excellent combination to reduce wheel hop and engine torque. The prototype is finished and mounted. They'll begin full production quite soon.:grin:


The amount of flex from the OEM UPR mount is considerable and flexes in all directions as you can see in the photos. So, it's no wonder the VN has a wheel hop issue. The Upper Right Motor Mount sells for $225.00 and worth every penny. The Lower Motor Mount sells for $195. https://www.turbotechracing.com/productcart/pc/viewCategories.asp?


The Lower motor mount unlike others uses a square bushing that reduces the back/forth movement associate with torque from the VN. It allows minimal up/down movement which contributes to a vst reduction in overall engine movement. The OEM unit allows significant movement in all directions, which translates to; extensive engine movement and wheel hop under acceleration. Now the VN stays planted from hard starts and thru acceleration. Which transfers more power to the ground.

Durometer range for the lower mount is 75A, if you're interested. With the combination of both upper and lower Turbo Tech Motor Mounts, power deliver is excellent and wheel hop is non-existent.

How's the vibrations? Thx for the review bud.

Br,

Was wondering the same as ghost, hows the vibrations and ride with an aftermarket RMM (I saw that you have one in another post)

I have two aftermarket motor mounts TTR Upper Right and SXTH Element Lower. I haven't taken the car off the stands yet until I install the TTR lower mount to make a good comparison.

With the SXTH Element unit and the OEM upper wheel hop was tamed fairly well. However, the lower only deals with the one aspect ot engine torque movement and causes additional vibrations. I won't be able to give my honest perspective, and assessment, until I've installed the TTR Lower Mount. The SXTH will either go on the wife's car or be sold.

With any aftermarket motor mount you're going to feel more vibration. The idea here is; to balance the two together. If you just utilize the lower, you're going to change the pattern of vibration and most likely cause additional. :smile:

Turbo Tech Racing is now taking orders for the mounts, with delivery next week. It's extremely well built and constructed to the specifications of the OEM mount and bracket. Install is a breeze and takes about an hour to accomplish. I took my time and still didn't go over an hour during install, as long as you have the available tools and jacks and jack stands.

If you don't have jack stand covers and hydraulic jack slotted puck, now is a good time to purchase them. It will keep you from scratching the paint off the jack notches and scratching the underside of the chassis.:smile:

I’m very much looking forward to your comparison, as I was strongly considering picking up the SXTH mount in the near future. Gonna have to wait now, and see if this is a better option.

Now to the important information;

Does the installation of both mounts cancel NVH; YES!

With both TTR mounts in place, NVH is negligible. They completely removed the shaking from the top end of the motor, when adding just an upgraded lower mount.

This is the problem with just adding a lower stiffer mount. The top end of the motor still attempts to shake as before. As I demonstrated in the photos of the TTR upper mount install. Both TTR mounts eliminate the excess movement of the engine in the OEM Motor Mount. You effectively, cancel out the movement and vibration.

You do feel the motor more readily but both eliminate the NVH and the excessive up/down & back/forward movement.

The VN is much more planted in all aspects and you feel more connected to the road and the car. As if the car's components now moves in unison, with each irregularity or change in road surface. The cars chassis no longer has the vagueness it once displayed. Both Turbo Tech Racing units, literally tie the chassis and engine together.

When you apply WOT, it simply moves forward with urgency and displays none of the previous tendencies to lurch, bog, stumble or become disconnected with the road. Feels like a single unit and has direct uninterrupted contact with the road surface.

I'm stoked with the outcome and one of the best upgrades you can make for the Hyundai Veloster N . :D

Both turbo Tech engine mounts can be purchased here;
It's been a real pleasure working with Aaron and the guys at
with the development, fitting and production of the TTR engine mounts. Look for more from them in the near future!! :D

Pretty stoked on this mount, even more so since it evens out the NVH. Do you work for Turbo Tech Red? I‘m curious about any conflicts of interest. Thanks man!

I just installed the TTR upper mount, Boomba Racing lower mount, and Injen intake. The exhaust is louder in normal mode upon start up, I actually thought it was on N mode. I can feel and hear the engine that it is a lot more connected with the whole car. There is noticeable vibration especially on the steering wheel when holding it and upon take off at lower RPMs, but I like it! It pulls better/stronger now with no lag than compared before (instant power!)

I did noticed the car now cracks and pops a lot less in N mode, and if it does, I could barely hear it now - anyone experienced this?

I'd like to hear an update after 500 - 1000 miles. I don't know about the TTR mount in particular but every motor mount I've ever had some become much milder after a few hundred miles.

Update: It definitely improved after a couple hundred miles, meaning the vibrations are much less now. Though there is still vibration, I only really feel it at 1500 rpm more or less when taking off in 1st gear. Love it though!

Just did the TTR upper mount on mine to go with the purple powerflex lower I'd done about a year ago. Main reason was to reduce the severity of the wheel hop some more. The lower mount reduced it a lot with almost no NVH penalty. Very slight vibration increase at idle and no increase in cabin noise at all.

On my other cars I've always had to do full poly engine mounts and control arm bushings to fully eliminate wheel hop, but with a large penalty in NVH. I'm not interested in having a buzz box race car this time around though. This is our family car we use for long trips.

Reading so many posts that said the TTR upper mount added almost no vibrations encouraged me to get it but my initial impression is that it's exactly like the solid poly mounts I've used on every other 4 cylinder FWD car. The vibration is noticable and the same as every other solid poly mount I've ever installed. I'm sure it will tone down after a while. I wasn't prepared for the noise though. The amount of injector and HPFP clatter inside the car with the windows up is just incredible. It sounds like driving an old diesel pickup and it gets louder as the RPMs go up. By the rev limit it sounds like a buzz saw.

I'm going to leave the mount in for a thousand miles to see how much of it goes away with break in.

Anyone know the durometer of the bushing in their upper mount? Is it 70A like they list for the lower one?

I have both and love it! No NVH after break in on my car. I listen to loud music so I don't hear that noise like you do. Honestly, my car is kind of quiet regarding all the tapping like some have. I use Lucas fuel treatment which does quiet the fuel pump a little bit. I also use a very good synthetic oil. AmsOil Signature Series 5W30. It takes about 400 miles or so of driving for the mounts to fully break-in. Best out there IMO.

Best regards,

-Mike

Taking photos and measurements in place this afternoon to send to TTR. Stuff is happening once again. I would appreciate anyone putting this out on their FB or IG page to gain some interest. The more that are the better the chances it will be viable to TTR as a production model. I'll do all the leg work as before and provide them with the mount and fitting. All we need is interest. USe the URL at the top of the page or this URL to direct their attention to the project.

Thank you for the assistance.

I've had the TTR upper and lower in for a few months now, and I absolutely love them. Would be ecstatic to see them release a trans-mount as well. Unfortunately I don't have social media anyone cares about to post to.

We are working on it at the moment and I'll post updates here. Had a really hard cold spell here, so it's thrown a wrench into the works at the moment.
