PART NUMBER: 61-3196
Having issues getting third gear when pushing your Miata hard? Might be worn out engine mounts. We also see folks having issues getting their new exhaust install to line up and it usually turns out that one motor mounts is failing and their motor is dropping to one side and taking entire exhaust system along with it.
For years we have sold the genuine Mazda replacement Competition Miata 75 durometer Engine Mounts that are 40% stiffer than stock 55 durometer Miata Engine Mounts. The result is much cleaner shifts and they last longer. We still sell those. BUT Mazda has now raised the price of those mounts by over 200%! That's when we decided to step in and make our own mounts. These RoadsterSport competition engine mounts are just like the Mazda units - but just a fraction of the cost of the Mazda mounts.
For those who must have the Mazda genuine part, we do offer the Mazda units elsewhere on this site. But for everyone else, get the same performance and spend less!
Simple bolt in replacement.
Price is for a PAIR of mounts.
BRIAN'S APPLICATION NOTES: In track and autocross use the factory mounts are not stiff enough to prevent driveline twist that will make it hard to shift when trying to shift quickly. If you want something that lasts even longer, see our complete upgraded mounts with urethane bushings but those are MUCH stiffer and will mean more vibrations in the dash, etc. If driving your car daily in the real world these are a perfect upgrade in our experience for crisp shifts.
I have a 1992 miata. I bought this to replace my 30 years old mounts. I was able to remove the driver's side mount with only taking out the manifold heat shield. When I took it out, the driver's side rubber had a crack but wasn't completed separated. The passenger's side was whole, but you could see that the rubber was dry and hard. I installed these competition ones and notice no difference in vibration. the engine looked like it moves the same way as it moved before with acceleration. It took me 3 hours to do this job and I think it was worth it. Now I know that my mounts are doing what they supposed to do. If you want less engine movement, maybe you should consider steel/poly mounts, because this competition ones feels like the stock ones. I'm happy with them.
