I've changed my stock motor mounts with the FM Motor mounts.

Yeah, FM sells the same Mazdaspeed motor mounts that're 40% stiffer than stock.

heh, you win, 40%

I just installed them last night, what a pain in the *** to do with ramps and a jack, took me about 4 hours, had to remove the exhaust manifold. The passenger side is not fun to get to, but WOW! these things make a world of difference.

My drivers side mount was cracked down the bottom and the passanger side was pretty bad to. I test drove it last night and it feels SO much better than it did. The slugish feeling is gone from the driveline now and shuddering I thought might be comming from a dying clutch is gone too . the shift from 1-2 at 7k rpms is a lot smoother now too, it just grabs, the transition from one gear to another is a bit different as well...but I like it

It was worth the time and I think this might be one of the most noticable mods for our older miatas....+1

Do a writeup. Take pictures and notes.


Miatamania (aka Moss) looks like the cheapest. $60pair plus shipping. I've ordered from them before and shipping costs are real. I'll be ordering these right meow!

Well, mine were $72.85 w/shipping from miatamania. That's $12 for shipping from Cali. Those things weigh 2lbs according to our resident weight expert?

$13 for 2lbs Cali to VA. That sounds about right.

Anybody pay less?

No, but I paid more from Track dog, 'cause I wasn't sure that Moss's were the MS ones.
