New motor mounts

I got new Mazda competition motor mounts from while oredering manifold studs.  I hope this will somewhat make the six-speed shift better without too much NVH. Also  the turbo/DP is less likely to hit the subframe/ steering rack.  3” is a tight fit.<div><div>Installation is pretty straight forward.  Car on wheel stands.  Jack up the motor a couple of inches with the OEM carjack under the oilpan.  Use a pry bar to move the engine and fiddle out the mounts and brackets.</div><div>
</div><div>There are some confusion about the Miata motor mounts.  There is at leaset 3 different mounts:
- Miata/MX-5 motor mounts</div><div>- Mazda speed mounts as found on the MSM.  These are supposed to be stiffer.</div><div>- Mazda competition motor mounts.  Stiffest.  Meant for Spec Miata etc.</div><div>
</div><div>The ones to get is the competition mounts.  Not the MazdaSpeed mounts, as they are probably the same as the regular mounts but with a higher price tag ( just like the MSM exhaust manifold gasket..) </div><div>
</div><div>Comparison shot.  MSM mount to the right:</div><div>
