This should the first upgrade on your Mazda. Installed it in Feb 2018. Took a bit longer to break in maybe due to cold weather. Upgrade was immediately noticeable with eliminated torq steer especially on slippery snow slush. I was driving with Hankook i-Cept Evo2 ...but did notice more slip before upgrade.
Traction feels solid and smooth...Luv the extra engine noise

Installed this on my 2013 MS3 and works great! It has a little more vibration but it is getting better the more I drive it. I had the CP-e stage 2 Rear engine mount before this one and the vibrations were overwhelming and never changed after 1000 miles of driving. Don't buy the CP-e mount if you don't like vibrations. The corksport stage 1 does all the things the CP-e mount does without all the vibrations! Great part and easy to install!

Wow! So I bought this after riding in my buddies CooperS with high expectations. First of all, I hadn’t been under my car yet and I found out I had a Cobb RMM. Corksport totaly crushes them, this mount is absolutely amazing. Gear shifts are way smoother, torque steer is almost completely gone (you’re actually in control). This is my third upgrade from Corksport and there will be many more to follow. Buy this!

Major improvements to driveability! 2011 2.5 manual. Give it a few 100 miles to break in and any harshness will be gone. Only con that remains is minor vibration when the air compressor kicks on and car is stopped. Vibration is not noticeable once driving again. This beautiful upgrade cuts engine movement, making hard accelerations and shifts much smoother! Other mounts out there are known for being too harsh, being designed for the race track. CS hits the mark with this one!

Bought the mount a couple of weeks ago. Looks very well made and it was very easy to install. I had the corksport inserts but I wanted to give the full mount a try. Awesome results! I dont feel the engine moving during gear changes, the car feels more responsive and the shifts feel smoother. I drive a 2010 Mazda 5 with the 5 soeed manual and this mount fits no problem.

Definitely the first upgrade that should be done on the Mazdaspeed3 for performance. Just like many others I'm not one to believe the hype in a modification before doing some research of my own and learning about the pros and cons, but believe me when I say just get this. You will not be disappointed, the pros FAR outweigh the cons! The install was easy, would be almost effortless on a hoist. So far I have done around 1000km of mixed driving on the 80 Duro (black insert) mount and I can say first hand it makes the car launch a lot harder with little to no wheel hop or noticeable drivetrain movement. Shifts are way smoother and tighter and I no longer hear/feel the drivetrain moving around when shifting, and best of all it pretty much eliminated torque steer in my otherwise stock '12 Speed3. I would not be surprised if all these drivability improvements shaved some time off of the cars 0-60 and handling numbers just due to the car being more capable of putting the power down. As for NVH there was a increase after installation as expected, but give the mount some time to seat and "break in" and within 150-300km 90% of the added NVH will disappear. I notice a slight vibration when idling warm below 800rpm give or take, and a slight rumble on cold start-up, other than that it is comparable to the OEM mount. Corksport nailed this mount! I haven't tried other manufacturers' RMM's but so far I am Glad I went for CS over the others on the market.

This mount should be the first thing you buy for your Mazda 3 and definitely if you upgrade to a short shifter. You will notice immediately the difference in shifting and transfer of power to the ground after installing. Takes about 100 miles or so to break in after that you only notice extra vibration on start up.

Best mod I've ever done to any car, it vastly improved the pedal feel, take off, and gear change, i no longer have to "search" for 3rd. better then the dog bone on my Mazda 2 id say if your dissatisfied with the gear change feel this is a good start. it almost made the car more fun to drive then my rx7! sorry if the review is on here again original didn't get my 5 stars.
Stetson Rydberg01/26/2017, 09:36 PM
Dude!.... this is the best mod I've ever done to any car, even better then the one on my Mazda 2 makes it so much more drivable, cleaner shifts, cleaner takeoffs, it made the car almost more fun to drive then my rx7. I'd say this a good place to start if your unhappy with shifter feel/ pedal response.
I saw the post regarding fitment, but just to be sure...
That includes the 2012 mazda3 2.0l skyactiv w/6MT? I just want to be double sure before I order this.
I'm having issues with the engine feeling like it's sloshing around when i try to accelerate, with occasional clunk starting from a stop. I also have occasional issues "finding" second gear, causing a grind, when I accelerate quickly. I'm pretty sure this part will solve my issue. Assuming it fits!
This this does an amazing job but in my low mileage car my engine starts sound like I'm firing up a big rig it's so rough. At idle it's a crap shoot if it will be a reasonable amount of NVH or absolutely awful. I've tried completely removing and very carefully reseating everything again at exact torque specs just like I did the first time but still the same result. Is there any trick to making this better? Higher torque on the bolts or something?
Would it matter if your Mazda was an automatic or standard for this kind of motor mount? (Due to the difference of how much your engine moves around) Or would I be better off getting a regular motor mount for an automatic?
Was wondering about longevity for engine life. I know your products are all top notch, and will never fail unless you hit something. Does the reduced engine lash cause more strain on vital components, such as timing belt, cam shaft/gears, rocker assembly, crank shaft, and my manual transaxle? Only reason I consider this is because under hard acceleration, the engine lashes back and forth quite a lot, sometimes to where the shifter cannot align the gears, and you grind. Or maybe the engine lash it has now is doing more damage to internals than it not moving... not sure, would like some advice.
Just want to know which is better? the Race rear motor mount (80 duro) or the rear motor mount (70 duro)? better yet, which would be better suited for a 2013 mazda 3 skyactiv hatchback?...........thanks.

Both the Race Rear Motor Mount and the Standard Rear Motor Mount are 80duro mounts. The Race Mount is Aluminum, the Standard Mount is Steel. I would recommend the Race Mount since the aluminum is more durable and corrosion resistant.
