    Need to get some for my Eunos. It's only a daily but I hate the feel of the engine rocking around. Got Vibratechnics in my DC5 and are great shame they don't make kits for miatas

    IDK – I'm not a fan of these types of mounts because I feel like there is a hinge effect, where the torque axis of the motor (along the crank) forces these type of mounts, that have bushings connected by a bolt along the axis to swing like a hinge. The video sort of proves my theory because every mount showed the same amount axis rotation, but they did differ in vibration because that is related more to the actual bushing hardness. Why re-invent the wheel? Just go with Jaguar V8 bushings designed for higher torque at about 1/10th the price of these custom pieces. The Jag bushings bolt right up to the stock Miata motor mounts. A lot of racers run these.

    Any softer options for lower hp? Or would that be bad for shifting like stock ones?

    Any chance we could get a list of all the places you have discounts for? I realize this is me being lazy and asking you to do work. If not, would you want a list I have started compiling?


    Did you test the awr mounts with new bushings to level the playing field or did you use the ones you've been doing 400 hp pulls on for a few months now?

    Just a minute in, those "scalloped" holes look a little sketchy, for the tension side. Speaking of which, I'm wondering what you think of a hybrid set, using stock or "close to stock" (whatever that means…) on the compression side.

    How long should it take to do the whole replacement without boning up the assembly?

    What about the Mazda factory competition mounts?

    6:49 lol im a dog


    Thank you for your time on testing these! I've been wanting new mounts as my MSM mounts are obviously worn, just wasn't sure of the higher end options. I like comfort!

    That cheese smile at end 11:47 lol great photos.

    Any idea if these will fit a 1.6? Checked the website and it's only says 94-97, seems like a great product

    Kevin McInnis

    Well looks like I'll be spending money tonight!

    I just put the AWR 80’s in mine at stock power and it’s incredible how much NVH they produce. Does your hood rattle like hell? I can hear the hood rattling from 30 yards away on cold start before it isles down. Gonna try replacing the hood bushings and lowering the hood latch to alleviate it. I think it’s plenty tolerable aside from the hood rattle.


    Great comparison!


    Thankyou mr craig

    What's the cost difference between insert replacement? The one thing I will say about my AWR Racing Inc mounts is that the inserts are readily available through a few different suppliers. Last time I ordered replacements it was $15 for a set of 4! Which is pretty good compared to replacing the stock mounts and one of the reasons i went to full poly engine mounts.

    Love these videos doing side by side comparisons. Especially when it comes to different aftermarket brands


    I have video of me missing third gear in three different angles. The wonders of shot standard engine mounts. Replacing them is on the short list of things that need doing.

    Greg, you're a legend. All that work and time for a motor mount video!! it's 100% entertainment, especially at 9:15 with the camera shake and top out-takes too. How can anyone give this a thumbs down??? ¦:¬

    Did you also win Rockstar's merch giveaway? Liking the sweatshirt.

    Awesome spooling intro!

    Guus Cornelissen

    have you looked further into a new seat?

    Andrew Cowden

    You probably want to put a locking nut, a lcok washer or at least threadlocker on the through bolt. As much NVH as the BP produces, that nut is likely to find its way onto the highway in short order. You'll likely have to go with a longer bolt if you add a locking nut or lock washer.


    Great video, Greg! Very thorough! The water test was very telling about the 60 hardness mounts.All the best, Rob

    Stock mount gang where you at?!?

    Patty Boi

    I love you, Dad


    Do you buy the mounts specific to your engine or chassis?

    Jason Sury

    Nice cap !


    So since you have a 1.8L in your car I'm assuming you went with the mounts for the 1.8L, am I right? Or did you get the 1.6L mounts since your car was originally a 1.6?
