      Installed the ECS Dogbone Core ....Possibly the hardest thing to get in EVARRR had to use a jack to push the thing in all the way.

      However the shifting is smooth as anything, its comparable to cutting through a bagel with a dull knife and with the insert cutting through a bagel with an incredibly sharp knife with ease...

      (can't you tell i need motor mounts)



      the only noise worth listening to are in the following time frames:
      i open the car up at 1:55
      at 2:27 I did a 2nd gear pull
      3:20 the car is spooling up
      and then anything after 4:22 is probably boring
      Mother of god that sounds amazing...what else do you have done to your car?

      Mine didn't come out either at first, i sprayed WD-40 on it...let it soak for about 10 minutes. Then used a 6ft breaker bar to get the bolt loose...worked like a charm. I think it was torqued way more than 74lbs+90 because that thing was not budging even at 150lbs.

      Good luck!

      Yesterday, I did a partial oil change (couldn't change the filter because Faulkner-Ciocca Volkswagen over torqued my filter housing), pollen filter change, re-installed my AWE tips for the Spring/Summer/Fall, and put GTI grilles on for the weekend (borrowing them).

      It's ok man. I understand. My schedule sucks really bad. If we lived closer (all the time) things would be different.
