The engine is the biggest single piece of weight in your car. Dropping it down will lower your center of gravity, leading to less weight transfer and more grip. In short, it's faster!
These drop mounts from Blackbird Fabworx lower the engine by about 1/2" and use a stronger bushing design that is less prone to cracking than the factory rubber. They also give better control over engine movement, so say goodbye to the classic 2-5 shift! Bolt-on replacement for the stock parts.
Available in both street and track versions. The street versions offer better isolation from noise, vibration and harshness (NVH) than the track versions do thanks to a larger bushing. Both of them are going to transmit more NVH than stock or the Mazda Competition units. This may be more than some people want. Street versions are kept in stock at Flyin' Miata, competition versions will be drop-shipped from the manufacturer.
When installed, the oil pan will be flush with the bottom of the subframe. Slammed cars, take note! Also, take a look at your engine and make sure that there's room for it to move down 1/2" before purchasing.
Fits 1.8 engines only. If you've done an engine swap, buy the mounts that match your engine and not the chassis.
