    Powerflex lists two different torque arm bushings. I know where the PFF5-207 is put where does the PFF5-206 go?

    Where the number 5 is pointing?

    At least it was on my R53.

    :cornut: If you use only the large one then cabin noise and vibration aren't too bad. If you use them both you might need hearing protection and large foam gloves. If this is for track only, you're fine. If this is for a daily driver well, you might want to rethink.:Thumbsup:

    For the R56 also

    They go in the small end of the lower engine mount if I understand it correctly, it replaces the rubber bushing in the small end of the lower engine mount. Maybe someone else will chime in and correct me if I'm wrong.

    Thanks Guys. Powerflex's website didn't state where these two really mount. I know what I'll be ordering.

    Number 5 in the diagram is not a replacement part according to MINI. That's why I confused.
