    Can't do that, we have bills to pay! The apocalypse sale still has a few hours left, though. The world didn't end today so you can still get a discount.

    Installed mine tonight... haven't driven it yet as I have the rear diff bushing still to do but wanted to let you guys know that I had to shave off a little of a corner in order to get the bushing in then it went right in with the hammer as leverage trick.

    I had my revshift trans mount insert in for three days, loved how the shifter felt but couldn't stand the vibration around 3000 rpm. Rattled the shifter my seat and even the clutch petal. I had to pull it out and the car feels back to normal..

    Anything else possibly misaligned? Sagging driveshaft? Old Motor Mounts? The vibrations go away over time. I have almost 0 vibes now, after the Revshift trans install, motor mounts, and got rid of the stock driveshaft.

    Others have reported these vibes upon install, but say they go away with time.

    I could not wait for it to go away. didn't like the feel or sound. I did not have any misalignment problems before the install any just pulled it back out by just jacking up the trans and not unbolting anything. Now the car is back to normal.

    I know that we discussed this before, but I'm sticking to my guns: that was a mistake. It *will* be better than stock if you stick through it. Unless your car has less than 10,000 miles, you almost certainly have a misalignment with the stock mount.

    Re: Revshift Trans Mount Insert ?

    I have the vibration as well, but it is much lower RPM.

    I am waiting for it to go away, but shifter feels better most of the time.

    Mine was installed a few days ago, and I most notice a vibration in the 1,250 - 1,900 rpm range, does not matter if the car is moving or not; in what rpm range is your vibe most noticable?
    I must say that getting into 1st & reverse is sooo much easier now. I'm still on stock motor mounts (but have the revshift bluesin hand). I'm kinda waiting for the stock MMs to fail, two mechanics have told me they're still fine....

    Going to be installing the insert sometime this week hopefully along with the SFI balancer. Have it in hand and ready to go in. I will post results when done as well. Already has CS motor mounts installed. Right now the trans definitely has some sag to it. Finding gears is not to much of a problem but the shifter is extremely notchy! Hoping to smooth that out some.

    Re: Revshift Trans Mount Insert ?

    Ok couldn't help myself I had it on the bench and couldn't wait for the other stuff to get here. I installed it tonight and took it for a drive. Shifter was real notchy before and that has smoothed out quite a bit Car seems to shift much better especially 2nd 4th and 6th for me at least. It had no trouble getting reverse but now it is even better. There are vibes. But if I cared about vibes I wouldn't have bought a car like this in the first place. Maybe they will get better with time and maybe they wont either way no biggie since they are minimal. +1 on the block insert. For the price I think it was a wise investment.


    Sharpening the sword so to speak.

    Re: Revshift Trans Mount Insert ?

    For comparison's sake, I also installed the revshift insert, and couldn't handle the vibrations, took it out and installed a CS trans mount after about a month. The stocker with insert made the biggest difference getting into first and particularly reverse, but the vibrations and added noise were more than I could handle (I have UMI motor mounts.) CS mount feels better than the sagging stocker, but it doesn't go into reverse easily like it did with the revshift insert.
