Complete fabricated rear engine mount now available with 70, 88 or 95 durometer Energy Suspension urethane bushing,
2004 - 2013 Mazda3 [ 2.0 and 2.3 and 2.5 engine ]
2004 - 2013 Mazdaspeed3
Improves drive line response by inhibiting driveling lash, putting all that motion to the task of moving the car along. Now fabricated from .125 steel plate, we weld in strengthening pieces and then powder coat the metal gloss black. We then install the ENERGY SUSPENSION urethane bushings. The 70 durometer bushings which are recommended for the street. The 88 durometer bushings are for aggresive street and racing activities. They may cause an undesirable resonance in the car at idle speeds but should not interfere with normal driving characteristics. The 95 durometer bushings would be for racing purpose only. For daily driving and normal street applications, order the mounts with the 70 durometer bushings.
The Urethane bushings are replaceable for instances where the bushing finally gives out. Which allows you to just change the bushing and not the whole mount again keeping the cost down.
Lifetime warranty on the steel fabricated mount.

The build quality, the improvement in the feel of the car and shifting is very good and the installation was a 5-10 minute job with an impact.
My car is used as a daily driver to and from work which is a round trip of about 45 miles per day at mainly highway speeds of 60-80 miles per hour.
The vibration in the car at start-up was quite unnerving. I am hoping since I purchased the softest durometer version that this will go away within a few hundred miles. It also adds extra engine noise inside the vehicle throughout the powerband of the motor.
This has eased up some but the main vibration is still noticeable just off idle or with the AC on. If this will go away soon I will be a happy camper.
With the added vibration I am a little hesitant at this point to replace the PMM with the stronger AWR mount as I don't want a lot extra noise and vibration in the car.

Easy installation, but make sure you have the jack holding that side of the engine primarily, I made the mistake of holding the engine up near the oil pan and it cocked it to the side and gave me extra steps to bolt the mount back in when I was finished assembling the mount.

This the firm, sturdy, solid item that you are looking for. Not a compromise. Perfect fit.

Very nice looking mount. Install was super easy, and MAN best purchase ive made for my 12 mazda3. I was surprised there wasnt much added cabin vibartion, which is awesome. AWR makes some good stuff. Will be keeping them in mind for future purchases. Thanks again guys!

This was a very easy install and coupled with the passenger side motor mount is a great upgrade for the suspension of the Mazda 3.

I love this mount it feels great. If your looking to upgrade your speed3 then this mount is where you start for sure. My car feels smooth at higher rpms and a little rough at idle but not as annoying as I thought it would be. Definatly going to need a new clutch soon my car has 74000 miles and this mount takes away from like 80% to 90% of the movement front to back so when the clutch engagues its a little more harsh than stock so when you race it wears the stock clutch a little more.

For $90 you really can't go wrong with this product. The quality of the finished product looks and feels great. It feels/looks like it will last for a long time. It also looks almost exactly the same as the OEM mount, so a dealer probably won't even notice you've changed the mount to an aftermarket. ;)
Anyone with a minor amount of mechanical knowledge can install this upgrade. It took me less than 15 minutes to swap out the old motor mount.
Initial impressions are good. Shifting feels great and solid. The clutch grabs immediately and the car moves, no more "lurching" with this mount. The vibrations were noticeable at idle and during initial movement in 1st gear, but have subsided TREMENDOUSLY in the 250 miles I've put on this mount. This is one of the best upgrades to any car I've done for the price.
My next purchase will be a short throw shifter to compliment the clean, crisp shifts that my 2004 Mazda 3s 5-door gives me now!

First of all the customer service was great. The quality was just as stated on the site. These mounts give a tight solid shift and pick up. NO MORE WHEEL HOP. NONE!!
