PART NUMBER: 61-3128
MX5 NC complete engine mount kit by AWR Racing. Made in the USA, laser cut and CNC folded, tig welded in house. Provided with Energy Suspension polyurethane bushings in four different durometer options that can be swapped out or replcaed at any time to suit driver needs. Powder coated silver for a very durable finish! Lifetime warranty on steel fabricated unit. Street and track proven!
2019 UPDATE: These 70 durometer mounts now use AWR's new larger barrel design for larger diameter bushing. This reduces the amount of NVH/vibration that is transferred to the car. These mounts still add more vibration than rubber competition mounts, but are a big improvement over the small diameter bushing old version.
Price is for a PAIR of new Engine mounts.
For the serious NC Miata performance enthusiast we bring you billet polyurethane motor mounts for the "NC" Mazda Miata MX5. The stock Miata soft engine mounts allow a great deal of motor movement... so much that autocrossers and track day racers have complained to us about high speed shifts that can be vague and difficult. The engine leans over hard enough to actually twist the transmission, making shifts difficult.
These mounts dramatically reduce motor movement for much more precise operation of your shifts and much more direct application of power to the ground....and your transmission will live a much longer life too!
BRIAN'S APPLICATION NOTES: We use a set of 70 durometer in our supercharged 2007 MX5. Note they take about 500 miles of use to break in. Even the 'soft' version of these urethane and metal mounts is a big increase in mount stiffness and expect a few vibrations in the dash at idle.
I just installed the 62 durometer version of these and it is an incredible improvement from the OEM mounts that had 90,000 miles on them. I have a short shifter which helped with smooth shifting but occasionally I would still have a 1st to 2nd gear grind at high rpm.
After installing these the shifting feels rock solid, like it is a brand new car and like the other review says, it makes it feel like a race car.
Vibration at idle is a very minimal increase compared to the OEM mounts but the way the car feels to drive makes it all worth it.
I have a skunk2 header installed in my car and the header was contacting the engine mount on the rearward edge of the top engine mount casing. I slightly dented my header at that point so that it would not contact the engine mount. I haven't seen anyone else run into that problem so it could just be my header.
I was getting locked out when shifting from 1st to 2nd so I replaced the old stock engine mounts that were worn out with these (70 durometer). I expected some engine noise and vibrations, but what I got was A LOT more than what I anticipated. I was surprised and thought I wasn't going to like it at first, but I grew to love it overtime despite the considerable amount of engine noise and vibrations. I can shift with ease; quick and crisp. Best I can describe these mounts is direct or raw, kind of like a race car.
Installation was somewhat of a breeze. Passenger side is a bit more difficult than the driver side, but then again all I had were jack stands and a jack. Once I had the engine lifted with the jack while the front of the car was on jack stands, it was a breeze from that point on.
