Did some measuring and since Im going to the dyno soon I want to get rid of the engine travel. Most know im running longtubes 2.5" borla and AEM CAI.

I enjoy testing things and seeing what fits these cars. Hopefully this makes other companies confirm these parts and start selling them.

Still waiting for fswerks to test fit their header since I showed them it fits.

Top one looks like jbarone. A lot of the MS3 guys swear by him, but as an individual hes an @$$hole. I know from personal experience from having my MS3, he was just disrespectful and highly unprofessional to those whenever they had a criticism of his work.

Good luck though!

1 reason is the car has terrible wheel hop when the tires break free.

2 Im tired of feeling the motor slam back and forth it really takes away from the DCT's ability to give a good amount of power to the wheels at all times.

3 I have a feeling this will make the DCT much more responsive.

Its For a Mazda 3 but this is the only rear motor mount I can find that looks similiar to ours. Single bolt through the subframe side and another through the engine side.

Wish me Luck.

Yeup, that's a James Barone RMM for a Speed3 alright.

Interested to see how this will turn out. Subbed keep us updated =].

I was wondering this myself. The lower motor mount looks easy enough to change out, as well.

you sir, are a pioneer [strongman] good luck!

Very interested in these results. Hope everything comes together.

FocusBoy58 05-05-2012 08:33 PM

It will work I looked Long and Hard at the mount and it should be a piece of cake!

amoosenamedhank 05-05-2012 08:50 PM

Is that a Gen 2 mount?
