DESCRIPTION

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).

Goodwin Racing MX-5 Engine Drop Brackets

Just finished installing these on my 2.5. During install I discovered that the engine mount studs on both OEM and AWR mounts are not threaded down to the base plate. There is at least 3/8 inch of un-threaded stud at the base when the new drop brackets are in place. This will prevent the the base of the drop bracket from being pressed to the base of the engine mount and will result in extreme play of the engine on the mounts.

Simple solution is a spacer. I used 6 1/2 inch ID washers per stud to provide complete thread engagement and properly secure the drop bracket to the engine mount.
