well.. technically... that would be (nearly) infinitely stiffer... I've heard horror stories of engine damage from solid mounts in come of my previous car communities. Most of them were retarted so I don't know how much truth there is to that.

Can someone post a good picture of the MS motor mounts? I received mine and they look too much like the original OEM ones

they look almost identical to the stock ones. I couldn't tell them apart at first glance aside from the stock ones being worn out

I got mine from Moss a couple days ago. Here they are. "Competition" is written right on the label.

You do not need those, but know how they work. (PS. Mazda Comps are 36 dollars)
