This was a good fail and a fantastic recovery.

How do you like the competition mounts?

To be clear, they aren't the competition mounts, they're the mazdaspeed mounts. Supposed to be 35% stiffer than the normal ones. Flyin Miata has the competition mounts, got these from Corksport.

Haven't driven the car yet so can't report on any differences. Only just now got the driver's side swapped out. Got to get that all bolted up then start on the new clutch installation. Old clutch and everything else is all out, should be straight reassembly from this point forward.

Although I hear this bandied about a great deal, I'm not sure that there is such a thing as "Mazdaspeed Mounts." So far as I know, the MSM got the same engine mounts as all the rest of 'em, and the only alternative offered by Mazda are the MazdaComp mounts.

Link anyone?

FWIW, I have the MazdaComp mounts on my daily driver. They're honestly quite civil. The first time I fired it up, I could detect a bit more vibration at idle, but now I don't even notice it anymore.

My only experience with miata motor mounts has been with these two pair. The new ones have two differences that I can see. First, the studs are slightly offset. The originals are in-line. Second, these are shaped slightly differently. The originals have one curved and one straight side, these have two curved sides. Flyin Miata has a picture of the comp mounts. I'll have to compare them; I'll compare later when I'm on a real computer.

Fwiw my original mounts were in pretty good shape. Very slightly cracked but not obviously compressed or torn. I think the major contributor. To sloppy shifting was the lose bolts on the control housing (the turret the shifter bolts to), and low fluid, also due to those loose bolts.
