Performance Engine Mounts

(14 reviews) Write a Review

There is something to be said about getting in a car that feels firm. It gives you a sense of confidence and quality in the car you're driving. These AWR mounts drastically improve on Mazda's original equipment. The re-designed mount literally takes a whole new direction when dealing with torque. If you're the weekend Auto X type, expect more predictable shifting. If you're in a boosted configuration, expect less drivetrain slop or that feeling of wheel hop that occurs when your factory mounts allow your drivetrain to flex and "bounce" back into place under heavy loads.

All the way around this is one of the more noticeable improvements to the way your beloved roadster feels.  We've personally destroyed 3 sets of OE and Mazda Speed mounts on our NB Miata and as usual, we're now offering our customers something that we trust.

When choosing the bushing duro keep in mind the limited amount of material that's actually being used with this design.  62D will feel firm, in fact we really recommend this for EVERY application unless you're looking for someting with extremely little to no vibration isolation. Initial NVH (noise, vibration, harshness) will start to settle after about 500 miles driven. 

AWR's engine mount kit is a direct bolt on replacement for your MX5 chassis. Fabricated steel replacement motor mounts provided with Energy Suspension polyurethane bushings that mount in the factory location giving more secure engine support. These mounts improve shifting and completely change the feel of the car keeping power sent to the wheels as it should be. Want less engine movement, cleaner shifts, as well as many more benefits? Look no further - AWR Racing has you covered!

Note that the ND mounts now include a heat shield on the hot side of your engine to keep things safe on track!

**There is a 10% restocking fee on returned mounts**

    No More Sloppy 2NDs and 3RDs!

    Posted by VP on Jan 11th 2019

    I have an NA8 and noticed a lot of drive-line lash when backing up enough to where I had to seesaw my clutch to limit this when backing into my garage. It was embarrassing and annoying. I have a turboed Miata, so banging through gears on downshifts during heavy braking was a chore and I almost always mis-shifted. After pulling my old mounts, they seemed to be in good shape, which was strange considering no cracking. The AWR install was not too bad at all, especially when you have extensions and swivel tools. I did not have to take off the exhaust side and did not have to move the starter at all on the intake side. I had it all done in about 3 hours by myself. When I fired up the Miata, I was expecting the NVH to increase... I didn't really experience a big difference at all, but it is there. What I did to settle it all was left the long bolts that go through the bushing a little loose, fired up the car for a few moments, shut down and tightened those bolts down. Super happy with the results when driving! No more lash or mis-shifts!

    Could Not Be Happier

    Posted by Ian on Sep 5th 2018

    Finally got around to replacing my 226k motor mounts in my 91 Miata with these. Got them after watching Greg Peters video about them on the CarPassionChannel. Was not disappointed at all. Have about 100 miles on them and vibrations are already starting to go down with the softest bushings. Wouldn't put then in a daily, but in a weekend warrior, they are amazing!
    If you can't deal with vibrations, and want a smooth ride, these are NOT for you. If you want to tighten up the front end, and can deal with a vibrations at 500-2000 rpm, you'll love these.

    Quick shipping, SOLID construction

    These mounts feel amazing. Great quality and simple install. Bushing is already inside mount. Highly recommend if the engine is already out and you want to replace the mounts while you're at it.

    Solid shifting

    Posted by Unknown on Aug 1st 2018

    250whp miata no longer making the 2 - 5 shift. 70 duro is enough for my power level. Very high quality mounts. Increased NVH but has settled down a bit after a couple hundred miles. I dont even notice it anymore. Buy these to stop missing gears and bring back that precise, sharp feeling to your shifts.

    AWR Motor Mounts (88)

    Posted by Michael on Mar 24th 2018

    Replaced my worn out factory mounts with a set of these in 88 durometer. Eliminated almost all drivetrain slop and also gave the car a more responsive turn in. NVH increased by a large amount, even after bedding in, but this is not an issue to me (however, it can be for some).

    Holy Moly

    These are great mounts. I've had about 8 different miatas (5 NA miatas, 2 NB miatas, and 1 MSM) and they all had the same issue - TONS of drivetrain slack. These mounts corrected that on my most recent 1996 Miata with a BP4W swap. Shifting is very precise. The NVH is on par with what everybody else has mentioned here. It's not unbearable. I'm currently dd'ing this right now, and it's totally bearable. Would I take a girl on a first date in this thing? Probably not though... 5/5 otherwise, though. Makes the car feel so much more solid.
