Talking updated info on engine mounts!!

think ive got some more info for you guys to make things a little easyer

The Factory mazdaspeed 3 and 6 mounts are better also but I believe the speed 6's mount to be bigger due to the car being larger..

Sure Motorsports engine mount:

JBR engine mount:

how to make your own mount :

then we have a ford insert not sure if this is the right one to fit or not....but i found on the st forums that Power Flex has a insert for the euro st and rs that fits out engine mount as its the same :

CPE stage 2 focus mountS KIT (TWO PARTS) :

Im still in the process of finding a mount that i would like to purchase seems im leaning towards the sure mount also im still confused if we get another engine mount that doesent come with a bolt do we need the mazda bold for the mount as well or only the factory mount? seems lieit would be better to go with one that suplies its own bolt??



In my findings i found a summary of aftermarket engine mounts and thought you all would enjoy a chuckle

Pros:

Reduced Wheel Hop
Improved Power Delivery
Increased Overall Feeling of Solidness
Increased Shifter Accuracy

Cons:

Increased Cabin Vibration
Increased Cabin Noise From Road, Engine, and Transmission
Annoyed Passengers Who Don’t Share Your Enthusiasm

Of course, if you’re like me, you’ll read the cons as:

Free Back Massage
Listening To Your Car Be Awesome
Lame People Who Don’t Deserve To Be In Your Car Anyways



yes i know lots of typos ill be back to edit and clean it up later
