I guess the STS and the inserts make the shifter just awesome. The factory inserts are vibration preventers. Allowing a little bit of movement in the base so that you don't feel as much of the road. That is my understanding of them. I figured for $40 and all of the great feedback that it would be a worthwhile investment.
I haven't replaced anything in the car in the power train.
As for black MACH's, I like them. Buuut....I like the eyelid look better. Makes the front end look mad. Lol
