Introducing the first and the only transmission mount for GEN3 Mazdas:

  • 2014-2018 Mazda3
  • 2014-2017 Mazda6
  • 2013-2018 Cx-5

The CorkSport GEN3 Transmission Motor Mount. Whether you are looking to liven up your daily driver or gain that last bit of driver feel in your racecar, the CorkSport TMM is for you.

By using stiffer materials to resist the engine and transaxle’s movement, the TMM provides sharper shifting and throttle response without drastically increasing noise and vibration.

Check out the video and information down below for full details.


The CorkSport Advantage

Fitment Inspired

The CorkSport GEN3 Transmission Motor Mount was designed to install just like OE and fit with no compromises. No extra hardware is needed and all OE mounting locations and features are retained.


Performance Driven

The CorkSport TMM may fit like OE, but that’s where the similarities end. The polyurethane bushings are much stiffer than the OE mount’s rubber bushings to provide better throttle response, reduce wheel hop, and significantly improve shift feel. The bushing size and stiffness was chosen specifically to balance drivability and performance so you get the driver feedback you want without hugely increased noise and vibration. As an added bonus, the polyurethane is more durable than the original rubber.


Materials and Manufacturing

The CS TMM utilizes precision machined billet aluminum for the main body and mounting plate that is then anodized black for protection and good looks. Laser cut stainless steel is used for the angled mounting bracket and washers to ensure lasting corrosion resistance, strength, and great fitment. A zinc-coated steel sleeve is used in the center of the bushings so that proper torque can be applied when installing the TMM. All of these parts are brought together with stainless steel hardware to keep your mount lasting a lifetime.


Balanced Feel

70A durometer polyurethane is used to provide the right balance of durability, driver feedback, and NVH.  The CorkSport TMM has been rigorously on the street and at the 25 Hours of Thunderhill in the CorkSport Mazda 3 Racecar.


 

Additional Features

    • Vehicle Fitment: 2.0L & 2.5L found in the 2014-2018 Mazda 3, 2014-2017 Mazda 6, 2013-2018 Mazda CX-5; equipped with both the manual and automatic transmissions.

Advisory

NVH: Noise, Vibration, & Harshness in the vehicle cabin will be increased with the use of the CorkSport Transmission Motor Mount due to the increased stiffness. A/C use and automatic transmission equipped vehicles may further increase the NVH.

Most enthusiasts agree that getting into a car with an automatic transmission is a shock after years of working with three pedals. The greatest transition of all has got to be using a highly modified car as a daily and then buying a brand new car. Even the best factory options are always better after some upgrades, and the new Mazda 3 is no exception.
While the throttle response is a bit lacking with the 2.0, if the driver gets the car going, it loves to be tossed around the corners, in typical Mazda fashion. The 6 speed transmission had me searching for gears at times in the first couple weeks of ownership, where the refinement of the chassis actually got in the way of the experience. For a relatively inexpensive car, it is well made, very quiet and smooth. So well, in fact, that passengers or even those directly outside the car would ask if it was on while it was running (a problem recently rectified with a full Corksport exhaust). Very little engine feel is transmitted back, via the pedals, shifter, or chassis. Great for a simple commuter car, terrible if you want to experienced spirited driving on the back roads.
After the transmission motor mount was installed, it was a whole different car. Upon start up, the engine note was noticeable inside the car, on a background level. It was also possible to feel a mild vibration as it was transmitted to the chassis. It was neither violent nor obtrusive, but made it obvious the motor was running.
Shifting seemed to be a bit more precise, or maybe it was a byproduct of it being so much easier to realize the rpm level the motor was working at. It is even possible to hear the synchros in the transmission engaging. Slop was minimized quite a bit upon take off and changing gears, as the car responded with more vigor and in a much more linear fashion. Just adding this level of engagement made the car feel more peppy and responsive. After about 8000 miles of use, it is still one of my favorite modifications. Driving feel and sound level have remained constant, with only one instance of excess vibration that was quickly solved by shifting. Apparently at a certain rpm range the car has a off balanced feel that is easily avoided once noticed.
