Engine Mounts, Competition, MX5 Mk1/2/2.5

SKU: SI4939

From the MX5 race series directly to the street. Up to now only available for the race cars in the Max5 series, they are now available for everyone. Higher horsepower and aggressively driven MX5's will benefit from these rubber mounts as they are 40% stiffer than the standard. Engine mounts keep everything in line by minimizing flex, which will allow the most power possible to reach the rear wheels.

Supplied boxed as a set of two.

Fits all MX5 Mk1, Mk2 & 2.5 models, 1989>2005

Fit well, I do feel a bit more vibration when driving compared to old stock mounts but shifting is dramatically improved.

Having tried some.70 grade polys and found my poor NA shaking it's feelings out and a surprising massive new drone from my exhaust I knew polymounts were a nono, but I lived the feeling of the gear shifts and the right engine.So I risked throwing good money after bad and bought these. Wow , what can I say fitted like stock, vibrations back to about stock mount level (I have an NA on coilovers so it's hardly quiet anyway) and more importantly the drone from my exhaust vanished again. Shifts still fill tight and the transmission tramp/movement is still gone.So if you are in doubt and like your fillings to stay in forget polys etc and grab these.

TL:DR – These are for increased torque applications at the expensive of NVH. #PREFACE#During Lockdown 1.0 I decided I would swap my ageing stock engine mounts out for these ILM competition mounts as I was starting to experience engine shudder at low speeds and significant engine movement under load and with a plan to supercharge in the future felt like they were a good purchase.#INSTALL#As mentioned by previous reviewers, annoyingly you will need to file/Dremel the mount to get it to sit snug in the engine mount bracket - it's a bit of a pain but super simple to do make sure to protect the threads on the mount. I also had trouble getting the offside engine mount into the subframe as my '03 NBFL's had a simple hole rather than slot (that was shown in all install videos) 30 seconds with an angle grinder fixed the problem though!#INITIAL OPNION#Once installed, I took the car for a swift drive in the absence of any traffic experienced slightly improved shift feel and significantly reduced engine shudder, result!#CURRENT OPINION#However, having piled 5000 miles into the mounts, my opinion has matured into dissatisfaction. The engine shudder has not in fact gone away, instead only hibernated for the summer and whilst the shift feel was still certainly improved, having used the car during weather which required the roof up, I have noticed that these engine mounts transmit significant vibration when cold idling and between 3000-3500 RPM, the latter unfortunately being the RPM band that I sit at most of the time (60-70MPH).Currently, I am undecided whether I will keep the mounts installed or opt to install more complaint mounts until my MX5 replaces my non-daily driver classic as my 'fun' car. As a 21y/o male with a love for classic cars however I reckon this might be quite a few years!I can say with confidence that these engine mounts are perfect for anyone with increased torque who is not bothered by additional NVH. Especially as my dissatisfaction stems from putting up with the vibrations throughout a reasonably lengthy B-road commute.

I wish I had replaced these when I bought my NBfl 2 years ago, but I'm glad I did before replacing the clutch which, as it turns out, is unnecessary. I've 100K miles on the clock and the old mounts didn't look that bad, but this has transformed pulling away and improved all gears. This is what my 5 was meant to be. If you just bought an old five and looking for your first mod - you found it. Seriously!Absolutely pig to fit. Be prepared for lots of wiggling and swearing. But absolutely worth it!

My 2004 NB has suffered from juddering when pulling off in 1st since I got it 6 months ago and it was also difficult to change gear accurately/smoothly sometimes. I bought these at the Ragley Hall event last weekend and fitted them this week. Installation is fairly straightforward but you will need a long extension bar. I used 2x 250mm bars and that worked ok - check you-tube for some good guides. The old mounts were distorted and several mm smaller through compression. The difference after only 2 days driving is incredible. Pulling away and changing gear is suddenly smooth and easy, much more like how I'd been led to believe an MX5 should be. Movement of the engine is visibly reduced. I was concerned about excess cabin vibration with these being stiffer, having previously fitted some polyurethane engine mounts to a Focus, which totally destroyed any refinement. However these haven't brought any new rattles and aren't noticeably different to the old ones in this regard. Totally recommend these if you're suffering similar symptoms as they have transformed the driving experience.

The mounts fit my MK2 perfectly, all in all a relaxed 4 hour job and after a spirited drive I'm very pleased with the sharper gear changes. Despite being stiffer, these mounts don't seem to transfer any extra vibration into the cabin which is a nice bonus, would certainly recommend them if your mounts need changing.

Update on my little tantrum:MX5parts refunded me £6.32 which made me feel a bit of a arse for writing such an unnecessary outburst.I had not read my emails saying reductions were coming up and had not noticed everything on the site had been reduced while loading up the review page.Apologies MX5parts.

Lets start on a positive, Having a M45 supercharger fitted to my 94 1.8 Eunos i was starting to experience vibration/knocking noises?On reading forums on the subject i found changing the engine mounts to these competition ones may be the answer!How right they were as the noises have gone. not being a racing driver i cannot tell whether it has changed any other driving characteristics?The parts were delivered next day as usual, 1st class service.Finish on a negative.Bought these on the 25/11/13 for £63.26On writing this review today 29/11/13 i find mx5 parts have reduced the price to £56.94I understand they are a company and moneys money but the timing for a reduction here was PANTS.I have used mx5 parts for many years now and will continue to do so, i just feel a bit let down...Editors Note: Sorry you feel let down by this, however the reduction in price is due to a 10% special offer on everything on the website that finishes Monday, at which time the price will go back up again. We haven\'t singled out this product or timed the offer to go out just after you placed your order, the offer is valid for a limited time on every product we sell and ultimately every offer has to have a start and an end date. All said and done, we don\'t like customers feeling let down so a member of the sales team will be in touch shortly to see if there is anything we can do for you.

These seem like an ok product, but unfortunately when fitting mine one didn't quite sit flush (a nib was a touch too big for a slot i seem to remember), so instead of filing down the nib slightly and refitting, i tried to tighten it flush and the bolt sheared off. Whoops.My mistake, but perhaps worth bearing in mind if you are fitting, as these are not oem parts.As for fitting, i seem to recall this was relatively easy albeit awkward to reach. no crane, so jacked up and on to axle stands, then jacked up slowly on sump and gearbox at the same time to help spread the weight.i think replacing all rubber parts on 15/20 year old mx5 is good idea

Delivery Information - MX5 Parts

We understand that its really important for you to receive your goods in a timely fashion and for a competitive price. To ensure that we can deliver this we have developed a strategic partnership with both the Royal Mail and our courier partner, Think Worldwide.

At the present time, we only offer one delivery option ‘our carrier’. We will dispatch your goods with the most suitable carrier, for main land UK deliveries this is normally Royal Mail 1st class for packages weighing under 2kg and Think Worldwide for those that are over.

Our delivery charges are based on the weight of the consignment and the destination address. For UK mainland deliveries they start at £2.95 for a package weighing under 200g and rise to a MAXIMUM of £9.95 for a package weighing 2kg or over (EXCEPT very large bulky items that have an additional shipping surcharge added). The exact delivery cost will be clearly displayed at checkout.

Delivery times are estimated at 1-3 working days by Royal Mail, and 1-2 working days by Think Worldwide for mainland UK addresses. If you order before 3pm, Monday to Friday, we will dispatch the same day. If you order after 3pm, we will try to dispatch the same day, but if we cant it will be the next working day. Items ordered after 3pm Friday or over a weekend will be dispatched Monday. Items dispatched on Friday are for delivery the following week. Items ordered over a Bank Holiday will be dispatched the next working day. MX5parts is constantly updated to keep pace with changes in our stock but demand is high and we occasionally run out of popular items. If we have run out of stock and can’t dispatch your order the next working day, we’ll email or phone you with a revised dispatch date. You can then either accept the revised dispatch date or cancel the order, as you wish. Please note, shipping times are an estimate, and can not be guaranteed. Please note that during special offer periods, dispatch of your order may be delayed slightly due to high a volume of orders.

A signature is required for ALL orders delivered by Think Worldwide. Someone must be at your delivery address to sign for your parcel between 8am and 6pm on a working day. Please send it somewhere it can be reliably signed for, like your place of work, a neighbour, or perhaps your grans. We can (but we don’t like to) ask the courier to leave your parcel without a signature. If we do this, it will be YOUR responsibility if the parcel is lost or damaged. If you want it left, you need to give us your express instructions in the ‘additional information’ box at the end of the checkout process. It would be helpful if you could also indicate exactly where the package should be left.

If you need to change your delivery address, for any packages that have been dispatched with Think Worldwide, there will be an additional charge of £9.95 if the package has already been dispatched.

Please remember, even with Royal Mail deliveries, that any items which are too large to fit through your letter box will need someone to be available to receive the delivery.

We guarantee “always fair prices”

MX5parts maintains an everyday savings pricing policy. We watch other retailers closely and maintain competitive pricing. The internet being the beast it is means that any Tom, Dick or Henrietta can set up a website in their back room and charge bargain basement/off the back of a lorry (guv) prices. Often they will have no stock, no returns policy, questionable security, no guarantees and of course poor customer service. MX5parts strives to be open and honest, so we will never inflate our prices to set up an artificial ‘sale’ (a common – and illegal – retail practice).

It is inevitable in an open market like the internet that there will be some individuals selling some items cheaper than we do, and some selling them for more than we do, just as in the high street. We take great pride in offering a fast, efficient, friendly and secure shopping experience, with great products at fair prices. We encourage our customers to shop around, but are very pleased to welcome them back again and again.

We guarantee to despatch your order when we say we will

If you order before 3pm, Monday to Friday and we have your items in stock , we’ll despatch the same day . If you order after 3pm, we’ll still try to despatch that day but, if we can’t, we’ll despatch the following day. Items ordered after 3pm Friday or over a weekend will be despatched Monday. Items despatched on Friday are for delivery the following week. Items ordered over a Bank Holiday will be despatched the next working day. MX5parts is constantly updated to keep pace with changes in our stock but demand is high and we occasionally run out of popular items.

We guarantee to replace any goods which aren’t suitable

We guarantee to accept back any goods that you do not want, are not suitable, have changed your mind about, infact, for ANY reason, provided the goods reach us within 30 days of dispatch from us, in their original condition and packaging. Please tell us why you are returning the items, just for our records. The original purchase price of the goods will be refunded on to the card that was used for their purchase. Sorry, but we can not refund the carriage costs.

We guarantee that we will only charge your credit/switch card when your goods are dispatched

This is your right under UK law and, if we do anything else, it’s illegal!

(Please note: This doesn’t apply however if you have chosen to pay via PayPal. Due to the way PayPal works, you are effectively sending the money to us rather than us asking for it so in this instance we will have received payment at the time the order was placed and not when it is ready for dispatch).

We guarantee that we won’t pass your email details on to anyone else

Absolutely not. All your details are treated as strictly confidential. We’re internet users, too, and we know how annoying unsolicited email can be. We wouldn’t risk annoying you by being the cause of it.
