The Fabless Tubular Front Cross Bar is a direct replacement for the factory MK2 Golf/Jetta front cross member. It is stronger, stiffer and lighter than the factory front support. The integrated front engine mount decreases engine movement resulting in more power transferred where you want it. The Tubular Front Cross Bar maintains OEM engine position, while offering a bolt in solution for many engine options and allowing for fitment of a larger radiator for improved cooling.
A Front Engine Mount is included with the Tubular Front Cross Bar based on the Engine Option selected. Front Engine Mounts are also available separately, and are interchangeable with the Tubular Front Cross Bar to make engine or transmission changes easier.
The Tubular Front Cross Bar is roughly half the weight compared to a factory cross member. The cross bar weighs 5.6kg and the front engine mount with bushing weighs just under 1kg (the mount weight fluctuates slightly based on engine selection).
The frame rail mounting holes are slotted on the bar for easier installation, washers are provided for use between the Tubular Front Cross Bar and the frame rails for proper fitment.
