Default WTD After market motor mounts

I keep breaking my exhaust in two I think it's time for new stiffer motor mounts. It would be great if someone had a extra set they would like to sell.

I got my mazda comp ones from moss. Maybe not the best price (maybe they are) but for me they are next day shipping and I needed them quick.

You could look into stiffer exhaust brackets while you're at it to. Some poly hangers should keep the exhaust from moving so much.

I've been looking at the moss mounts. I think if the exhaust moved more it wound be better. I instead of the whole exhaust movin it just twists apart at the turn. I've had it fixed four times now and I think my muffler man getting anoid with me.

They are not "moss mounts" per say, they are a mazdaspeed part that you can get through your local dealer. Moss simply sells them. If you need them quick, go with moss, otherwise go with your dealer as they may have better pricing.

Or, join mazdaspeed motorsports and get them delivered next day (once you are registered) for less then moss. You need to show proof of 2 race/autox events per year to join.

The parts counter at the dealership does not sell the Mazdacomp motormounts.The part number for theses mounts are not even in their computer.

They only sell the motormounts for the "mazdaspeed edition" miata which are only 10% stiffer than stock.

It never breaks at the welds usually right before or after.

That is the problem.... your muffler man does a shitty job and it is hard to brake something at the weld. If someone did a shitty job, it will most likely brake just by the weld and not directly on it.

I think You need stiffer motor, trans, and poly exhaust mounts. I have a set of my old stock motor mounts if you want them....

Well regardless if he does a shitty job or not, after the motor mounts then I'll get a new exhaust and move on with my life. Hopefully.
