Rear Motor Mount

I've been following a couple threads here and there that have been discussing rmm's in depth. I've been doing my own research as well. I don't know a whole lot about it but it seems to me that they all claim to do the same thing as the next. I'm looking for one that will stiffen things up with out rattling my teeth out. What reccomendations would you (FF members) suggest?

cp-e is very very harsh. i would get the powerflex insert. otherwise you'll be finding new rattles every time you drive. not to mention your car isn't terribly powerful to make full use to lay down that extra grip.

I just put in a MS3 Motor mount last night. Firmed up nice with no rattles. Its amazing Ford actually put in the mount they did, it is sure cheap looking.

You can order a stock MS3 rmm at your local Mazda Dealership, the part number is : BBN-39-040 price is right around $40, also order the Factory Mazda bolt: 9YA0-2A-226A will cost about $9

Is this mount universal for both the automatic and manual? I called my local dealer and they said the part number is BBN3-39-040A and that the parts are not returnable so I don't want to order the wrong motor mount if ya feel me.

I've put the MS3 RMM on my DCT equipped 2012, so yes it doesn't care which gearbox the car has.

I'd look at ordering from Park Mazda in Ohio as it was less expensive to have it shipped. Although it hasn't necessarily fully cured the wheel hop clang with the TCS on.

Maybe I'm misunderstanding the purpose of this rmm. On a scale of 1 to 10, 1 being worst and 10 being best, how much of a difference is it? Usually if I'm gonna get on it and go, I turn traction controll off. It's supposed to reduce the wheel hop and that annoying vibration at idle, correct?

With the T.C. off it just roasts the tires on a full bore launch (at least it did with the 16" wheels) and bounced a little bit depending on the road conditions. With the T.C. on in drive depending on the road surface and what not it would still clang after it broke in a bit.

It is stiffer so may actually increase idle vibrations somewhat, but not noticibly after awhile, but it does help to prevent the engine from moving quite as much.

I actually didn't notice any clanging when taking off aggressively from behind the starter's stand at the hpde I just attended on sunday, where as the stock mount was so bad it would do it even on a mild acceleration.

Most of the problem with it still clanging now is due to the TCS applying the brakes afaik.

There are stiffer mounts out there, but other than the E-Focus mount I've not necessarily heard much good about them. The MS3 mount helps and doesn't cost a whole lot for a better part.

I'm not sure how I'd rate it, I changed the stock mount nearly 10k miles away. Probably easily a 6 or 7, its not perfect, but its not a fail either for under $50.
