Now for the "epilogue".
I am extremely
pleased with this modification.
You will not believe how much tighter the shifting is.
1st to 2nd upshift is virtually seemless now. No more…..BANG.
A pleasant side effect is that downshifting is also notably tighter.
It sure showed up this weekend on the AutoCross course.
As far as NVH, what I do notice is slightly
more vibration just after the engine kicks over upon startup.
More importantly, is I don't notice any
increased vibrations at idle, I.E. sitting at stoplights.
Now, to go get myself the Steeda short shifter, and have the best of both worlds.
IMHO, I would not
install the shifter without first doing the rear motor mount.
No matter how much you improve the shifter, the engine is still going to be moving too much.
