Thank you. You have rated this product.

Lowers the engine 1/2"

Fits both 2.0 and 2.5 motors. Works with factory and aftermarket engine mounts such as our 40% stiffer rubber mounts.

Drops the 2.5L motor to the same effective height as the factory 2.0L. This lowers the center of gravity for better handling and allows the 2.5L to fit underneath the factory shock tower brace. With these you can also fit our MP62 supercharger to the 2.5L motor without needing to cut the hood for clearance.

Previously, the only way to lower the engine was with special engine mounts only available in "race" durometer, and those mounts transfer huge vibrations into the chassis. We set about designing these brackets so that you can lower the motor while still retaining rubber engine mounts that keep the car enjoyable for all uses. (Specifically our GWR rubber Competition Engine Mounts part number 61-1713)

Use these on your 2.0L motor to lower the engine's center of mass within the car for a competitive advantage.

Works with the OEM engine mounts and aftermarket mounts.

Kit includes two drop brackets and eight washers. Stack four washers in the bracket's mounting cup for each bracket to take up the unthreaded length on the stud so that the nut can tighten down fully on the stud.

FITMENT NOTES:
This version fits with most aftermarket headers including our standard Max Power header and our street header. However, it DOES NOT clear Long-tube headers or our new larger 1.8" Max Power header.

INSTALLATION NOTE: If your factory bolts for the bracket to engine block are 40mm long, you will need to replace those with 30mm length bolts (M10).

Good morning Brian, I finally got a chance to put the exhaust on, great advice, it's just loud enough, solid product. I'm running without the baffles, sounds great in power band. Take care, you have all my future upgrade business.........regards.

After reading many other positive reviews on both the GWR and Miata forums I finally decided to buy this product. My main concern for many months was whether or not I was up to the task of installing the header. But with the excellent instructions on Brian's forum as well as several Miata forum threads it turned out easier than I expected. After receiving notice that the header would arrive on a Friday afternoon, I began the disassembly process. After about 3 hours I had the stock manifold out. Later that afternoon the new catted header arrived right on schedule. And it is a thing of beauty. I opted for the stainless version. Installation on Saturday morning took another 3 hours, although I could have shaved some time off of that but I was actually enjoying the process of double checking torque values and cleaning up my engine compartment. I already have the GWR catted midpipe, so that connection was a snap. I put everything back together, reconnected my battery, and went for a drive. NO CODES! Nice throaty sound with my RSII muffler, and a significant boost in power and low/mid torque. Another happy camper here. I since have added a M-E tune and I feel I have realized all of the gains that Brian has achieved on his 2012 project Miata. I've put several hundred miles on my Miata since the install with zero problems. This is the car that Mazda should have built all along. Thanks Brian.
