The factory transmission mount equipped from Volkswagen was never meant to handle the stress and abuse that comes from the increased torque and horsepower in a tuned vehicle. We commonly see failures and worn bushings at very low mileage on cars that are even just driven spiritedly on the streets. It doesn't take a track car to warrant upgrading your mounts, and many people will not believe how big of a difference it will make in the way that your car feels. Many will describe as a night and day difference, and most are often surprised at just how much this part is taken for granted.
Functionally a stiffer mount will limit engine and transmission movement, which will in turn allow more power to be transmitted to the wheels. Essentially you are freeing up wasted horsepower and effectively making your car faster. In addition to improving power transfer, in manual cars in particular your shifting will feel more crisp and deliberate as there will be less delay coming on and off throttle while engaging your clutch.
