2004-2012 Mazda3 2.3 AND MAZDASPEED3 PASSENGER SIDE MOTOR MOUNT. Note If you are ordering this item specifically for a Mazdaspeed 3 please order 88 d minimum durometer bushing. 70 is available but not recommended. Mazda 3 is Available now in 70 , 88 and 95 duromater, with 95 being the is stiffest. This is a fully fabricated steel motor mount and all items are laser cut CNC folded and Tig welded. They are then powder coated and assembled with our Energy Suspension urethane bushings and nickel plated steel inner sleeve for that long lasting durability. A definite improvement for those who are experiencing wheel hop or sagging factory mounts. This is the cure for sure. Couple this with our lower rear mount and soon to be released drivers side transmission mount.

On wednesday Tony Woodford of AWR installed the passenger side mount on my 2011 Speed 3. My other mounts are stock as of right now, but they will be changed out shortly. Once the mount was installed we took the car for a test drive and I immediatly felt the difference. The car was way more positive feeling to my throttle inputs and it was a great improvement with the torque steer of the car. The mount also gave the car a deeper sound as well. The stock mount is way to sloppy for the car and I feel that it takes away from the sporty feeling of the car. As for ease of installation it took only took about 35-45 minutes with some simple tools. The quality and craftsmanship of the mount is great and everything lined right up. We also relocated the stock ground strap that is attached to the stock mount.

As all Mazda 3 owners know, the garbage stock mounts cause all kinds of problems. I replaced the original that came with the car in March 2015. Within months the replacement mount started to give. Engine movement was huge eventually putting too much stress on the drive train and rear mount. I changed the rear mount with another performance one by another company but since the PMM was junk it created a knocking when I would start the car and engine noise was loud. I replaced the passenger mount with this one at 70 duro and it is awesome. Cannot recommend it enough. Thanks AWR! Problem solved. Car feels, sounds and drives great!
Goodbye to stock motor mounts
Great looking mounts (I also bought the rear engine mount) that bolted right up to my 06 Mazda 5. I bought the 70 durometer and it seems plenty stiff. On my car there was a ground wire that had to be relocated (very easy to do since there is a threaded hole on the shock tower), other than that it was a direct replacement (there is a online video showing the whole process of replacing both engine mounts). I have had the new motor mounts installed 1 week, so I can not speak to the durability, but I am hopeful they will be better than the crap stock, they sure looks beefy.
New Motor Mount
I bought this part for my 08 speed and have had it on for about a week thus far and am enjoying it. I haven't opened her up yet with it on because I've just been daily commutting but it's not bad around town. The only downside is that if you get the 88 durometer one you will def hear the change in vibrations from the stock. It might change once broken in more but I'd stick with the 70 for the 07-09 MS3 I'd stick with the 70 durometer. Great part though, I am satisfied. :D
yes. simply yes.
After reading reviews and debating for hours, I must say I'm satisfied with the mount. I upgraded from the stock Fomoco piece of crap that completely failed and bent both studs. Overall the mount has a great solid feel(88 duro), was easy to install(minus a random wire relocation - 2010 Mazda 3 2.5L), and now that I'm 50 miles in has settled and feels phenomenal. I definitely recommend you buy this if you're looking for increased throttle response and an overall more solid feel!!
Makes a world of a Difference, Superb quality
I ordered the 95 Duro for my Mazda5 Van which fit just fine even though it is not listed under application. The unit is beautiful and very well made. I love the fact that it looks like something that is OEM, this is great where I live where the police pops your hood quite often. The mount helps tremendously with wheelhop and helps a bit with shifting. I also have it paired up with the ford focus electric rear motor mount. There is now more vibration in the carbin but still very acceptable. For the first week you will feel alot more vibration and it dies down as the mount settles, that's normal.
installed the AWR engine mount in my Mazda three. the car feels a lot tighter than before. i recommend it even if your old engine mount hasn't broken yet.
A Serious Mount
This motor mount is seriously engineered and beautifully crafted. Very straightforward installation, aligns perfectly. I got the 70d bushing since car is a daily driver. At startup and very low rpm, there is of course more engine feel/sound transmitted to the cabin than with the OEM part. Seems a bit rough at first but smooth's out totally once you're under way. Highly recommended part!
Nice, solid construction. Easy to install. Clean appearance. More direct feeling to the motor. And finally no more stock mount breaking!
