Focus ST Passenger Side Motor Mount
The Damond Motorsports Passenger Side Motor Mount is a must have for any Focus ST enthusiast looking to keep their powertain solidly planted, drastically reducing wheel-hop and torque-steer, all while adding less NVH than the competition. Damond Mounts are ran on the quickest most powerful track Focus ST's, as well as many enthusiast's daily drivers.
The Damond Motorsports PMM design:
- The bushings are orientated properly to support the motor and absorb vibrations across the whole bushing.
- This allows us to use stiff bushings without increasing NVH to unbearable levels. Orientating the bushing carrier in a transverse manner further reduces NVH, as less stress is put on bushing flanges.
- Full length welded steel base and top pieces.
- CAD designed, and FEA, street & track tested. You can't make enough power to break this thing.
The Damond Motorsports PMM specs:
- Made in the U.S.A.
- Machined aluminum bushing carrier, anodized gold or black
- Lower mount base and top piece are high strength steel welded and powder coated black
- All high grade fasteners, and lock nuts, new 14.9 grade studs provided for the timing cover
- OTS Energy poly bushings
- Minimal added vibes, along with lots of tire spinning instead of wheel hop.

Note: With this mount there will be added NVH over stock, as well as a slight break-in period for NVH to settle.
Let me just start by saying after getting all three mounts you definitely feel a difference in the car. I paired by Damond PMM with the trans mount and they go perfectly together. After reading a couple of reviews stating that you'll feel a vibration in low RPMs I braced myself for that burden. However with having a 3" straight pipe, gutted the car, and the rear motor mount for a couple of months all the vibration and noise just goes into one and I don't care for it.
that doesn't mean I can distinguish whats what. you can feel the smallest little vibration in very low RPMs when getting into first gear, after 10 mph or so you can't even tell its there because the car is moving. the passenger can feel it more where they place their feet but you won't be sitting there so it won't matter.
all in all Damond products are just built to last. the quality of their product is amazing plus their super fast shipping, I've received all of my orders in way less than a week. Processed and shipped in even the same day.
lastly, I don't really launch my car but I've done it a couple of times now only because of how good it feels. my car has never been planted so firmly to the floor. there is no wheel hop at all. its all smooth tire spin. I thought something was wrong or I did a perfect launch because it felt so good and I wasn't used to it.
definitely something you want to buy.
My stock passenger motor mount failed after 90,000 miles. My car is completely stock and a daily driver, so I needed the replacement to be as livable as stock. I considered getting a new stock mount but did some research on aftermarlet options and the Damond mount was well reviewed. It was worth a shot.
It's everything I could have hoped for and more. Very little vibration increase, mostly between 1000 and 1500 rpm or so. Anything outside of that range there is no difference from the stock mount. Surely the worn stock mount was shot, but the difference was much more pronounced. The entire feel of driving and shifting is transformed, much more precise and direct, with no engine movement. The first few hundred miles were the harshest, but after 500 miles I barely notice it anymore. As a mid 30 something, I'm getting to a point where comfort trumps performance. This mount provides both. Couldn't be happier, and glad I have a more robust mount that will last longer than stock. I'm excited to try the RMM when the time comes!
Changed OEM pmm to that one and it's really rocks, increased vibrations on lower rpm but acceleration fully improved 😍😍 togather with rmm you will get some nvh but as long as you throttle all way down you will forget about that... Thanx damond for the all support!
After some highway pulls, the OEM PMM decided to crap out. That's when I decided to search the inter-webs for a quality replacement. I am simply blown away by how much of a difference this PMM by Damond has made on my FoST. Given it is still being broken in, the vibrations have marginally increased, but the feel of the POWAH has dramatically increased as well. Wheel hop has decreased and face-grinning, tire-spinning has significantly improved. The mount itself is of great quality and you can tell a great amount of precision engineering has gone into it, along with some quality craftsmanship. I WILL be purchasing the RMM here shortly just because of the amazing product I have recieved. If you are reading this and are considering another PMM over this one, just know that there is NO better mount out there! BUY THIS ONE! You will be most satisfied you did. Thank me later! Keep up the awesome work DAMOND MOTORSPORTS!
I really like the new mount and how it changed the characteristics of the car. There is more engine cabin noise but it's pleasant and it gives me a "sense" of what the engine is doing. During initial take off there is definitely more vibration but you learn to adjust your driving style to compensate. After a week the mount has "broken in" and it feels much better. Traction improved and there is no wheel hop now. I am using this mount with the factory trans mount and a COBB RMM. It's a pretty good combo so far but one day I'd like to try the Damond RMM.
