How was your carrier bushing replaced, its all one piece in the drive shaft I thought.
I swapped my stock mount with insert, out for the creative steel mount. (been in for a few weeks now; wanted to thoroughly test it before giving the update)
Gotta say I think it is the best of both worlds. I didn't like how the revshift insert made 1st and reverse feel better at the expense of a notchier 2nd and 4th.
Even after letting the insert "settle in" for a while (months) I like the sound with the creative steel better. I still hear the growl of the engine under load through it, but not so much droan as before.
Shifter feels nice and solid, and all my gears feel equally easy to move to.
The insert is not a bad product by revshift, I just favor this new mount more.
Yeah, I'd like to see a full mount option from Revshift to compete with Creative Steel in this area.
I'm not sure what Philistine means. I've had the cup in both orientations in the last couple of weeks, and the transmission shifted the same way both times. The problem with reversing the cup orientation is that 2nd, 4th, and 6th leave the shifter jammed up against the lip of the box. And you'll never be able to run an aftermarket driveshaft, since you have almost no clearance. As far as I know, there's no advantage to messing with the stock orientation.
As far as toe rods go, I think you'd have to come in with a product that's lighter, stiffer, cheaper, easier to adjust, or some combination thereof (versus BMR or Creative Steel). On the front end of the car, there's more room for improvement--we don't have light/stiff tie rods, and we have one of the world's heaviest spindles. That spindle could be swapped out (see thread) for the V2 spindles, if only we had compatible sway bars or end links. If there's anything you can do about any of that, I think you'll have some excited customers.
I'm also looking for someone to do some plastic/carbon fiber molding of underbody panels. Do you know anyone who might be capable and interested in that?
How about a 80a guibo joint? One that can be a solution for the majority of misaligned drivetrains....
