got my stage 2 insert (2.5l) yesterday.. itll go in this weekend =] will post my review after install
the mr. pitstop worked like a charm. SO easy. love the impact =]
alright so i greased up everything nice and liberally with lithium grease and could only get the insert halfway in. so, i put the large washer on my floor jack and slid it under the car. piece of cake to push it in. torqued it, lowered the car, and took it for a test drive. Total install time, maybe 10 minutes.
First thing i noticed was a little more vibration when starting, but just enough to be enjoyable lol. In reverse the vibration is very pronounced, especially when at a full stop. No biggie though. Driving is so much more fun, accelerating feels cleaner, shifts are quite smooth. cant wait to try the side mount and transmission mounts now!
VERY happy with this mod. Best $40 I've spent on my car.
I'm glad to hear it all worked out in the end.
There are some additional vibrations for the first 50 miles or so. It will tone down a bit with miles logged.
Well got mine in yesterday and installed it this afternoon. Pretty strait forward, remove OEM bolt, insert bushing and torque using supplied bolt. I was kind of skeptic at first because the bushing isnt 'hard' per say but it does the job. Took her for a spin and sure as hell wheel hop is gone in first and second gear. Did a mild launch and got some wheel hop from that but is 10x better then it used to be. Excellent upgrade for the price! Thanks
I placed my order on June 15, 2011, 14 days before your announcement. CTS Turbo Order ID 1316. Product ID EBF1783M5T09. It is green color. Is it a 90a or 98a hardness?
It works fine, adds only a slight hint oif vibreation, but there is a lot of vibration on reverse.
If it is a 98a I would like to get a 90a replacement to try. How hard will it be to remove the old one? How do you do it?
My car is an 09 GTI with TSI engine and 6 speed manual.
