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. Note that lowering the engine means lowering entire exhaust system, this can mean you need to space braces under the car down with some washers to create more clearance for midpipe.

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). BRIAN'S APPLICATION NOTES: Only recommended for the customer seeking room on top of 2.5 conversion to use MP62 blower, most 2.5 customers should skip this option to run our big 1.8 inch primary header.

Brian, Thank you!!! We last spoke in November about some upgrades for my 2011 MX5 soft top. It has finally warmed up in NE Ohio and two relaxed weekends of wrenching on my car were well worth the effort. Installation of the RoadsterSport ceramic coated street header was straight forward and took under 8 hours, including a 40 minute test drive and cleanup of the garage! Combined with the RoadsterSport Q exhaust, the sound is fantastic and the increased torque, horsepower and performance make it a blast to drive. The addition of the Cobalt shock tower brace, Racing Beat sway bars, ILM front power train and X braces really enhanced the ride - minimal body roll, comfortable and very responsive. Your recommendations really helped transform the car from great to fantastic. Your research, product development and candid recommendations make you a standout in the industry. My only questions are - what's next on my list .... And how soon will my wife want the same upgrades on her 2012 PRHT ... Again, thank you!!! Charles G

I red'all the parts in the order I placed and installed them in my car yesterday. I am beyond happy. The install went without a hitch. The results were fantastic. The new brakes track straight, make no noise, and stop the car authoritatively. The new rotors look pretty cool, which we all know isn't all that important, but having 6 women offer to bear your children, because your car looks SO cool is a good problem to have. Thank for great products and service.
