Custom Performance Engineering is very proud to release the first aftermarket EPDM (ethylene propylene diene monomer) rubber engine mount for the Mazdaspeed3! CNC machined from a single piece of billet 6061-series aluminum; this mount is not only totally indestructible, but it also transmits far less NVH (noise, vibration and harshness) into the cabin than comparable mounts.
Our Mazdaspeed3 Rear Motor Mount is unique compared to our competitors mounts both in form and in function. We use rubber for the bushing as opposed to urethane simply because it’s better suited for this application. Rubber withstands engine heat much better then urethane, and it won’t deform or crack over time the way urethane can. We were also able to incorporate a unique method of holding the mount in the vehicle. Instead of placing all of the force on the center bushing pin, the load is distributed throughout the bushing. This increases the effective stiffness of the bushing under engine loads, and the bushing absorbs annoying vibrations. Now you can combine the stiffness of a race mount with the comfort of a stock unit!
Disclaimer: Due to the various different N/A Mazda 3’s this mount may not fit your specific model. This only applies to Mazda 3’s and it will fit any Mazdaspeed3.
Unlike nearly all other engine mount manufacturers, we use EPDM for our bushings. This provides much more vibration resistance when compared to polyurethane. This material is also extremely resilient and is able to stretch and even develop small cracks without affecting its structural integrity. EPDM is much more expensive to produce, but it is a far superior bushing material.
Pressed Center Insert
Our metal inserts are physically pressed into our EPDM bushings. This allows the bushing material and the metal to have a perfect connection without any gap. Other manufacturers cut their material out to fit, leaving small tolerances where the metal can still vibrate. Our construction allows the EDPM to absorb the vibrations and allows the metal inserts to smoothly move with the EDPM.
