Thanks for the compliments everyone!!

Got my Corksport inserts today and went ahead and installed my MS3 RMM. Install took a grand total of 30 mins and was too easy. It's def. a easy/cheap mod and one that you can easily feel your car benefit from...

Package with some extra stickers and treats from Corksport.




New vs. Old...

What does swapping that out improve? I've seen almost everyone do it and heard nothing but good things. I'm interested in doing this

The oem rear motor mount (RMM) is very weak allowing the motor to move significantly back and forth under throttle. The MS3 RMM with inserts reduce that movement greatly allowing less movement and some say more of the power transfered to the wheels

where can you get the MS3 rmm from? part number? and does it come with inserts already or do you have to buy aftermarket? hows the install is it pretty straight forward like just un bolt the old one and put the MS3 one in and torque it down

I bought the MS3 RMM from another member on here, but I believe that you can get it direct from Mazda for around $50-60 with the bolt. The inserts I bought separate from Corksport for $45.

Install was super easy. Once you get the plastic/foam/cloth diffuser thingy off of the front and reveal the RMM, there are a total of 5 bolts that you need to take off so you can remove the stock RMM and replace it with the MS3 RMM. Took a total of 30 mins including jacking up the car, placing it on stands, removing diffuser shield, removing and replacing RMM...

Installed my OEM Ford Mudflaps today...install went super smoothly and was super easy...




Ran into a little problem though... ... I have a stupid little speed hump looking thing at the end of my driveway and I'm low enough to have my mudflaps do this...



Oh well, the price of being low I guess...
