    Initial Review from 1 day of driving:
    The bushings dont make a crazy amount of difference. I definitely can tell a small difference.. The Positive impact is more pronounced when accelerating up hill. it feels like there is more power going to the wheels/quicker response.
    no extra NVH
    (Edit on day 1)
    My girlfriend is the one who commented/noticed that when shifting quick, the bushings reduce the amount of Thud/shudder/thunk/clunk that happens in the back of the car. it is actually a very nice improvement.

    How was the install? Can you do it in your driveway with a floor jack like in the pic?

    My friend and I installed them in his driveway (neither of us are very mechanically inclined :P )
    the front bushings were a PITA to get in... we took a drill, and drilled out the rubber part of the bushings (both sides) took apart his hack saw and placed the blade inside the bushing ring, and sawed out the inner ring. we actually didnt do anything to the outer ring/brace which was good. it worked really well. not going to go around telling people its a good way of doing it, but it worked. (it was 6pm and no places were open that had a press) putting in the bushings/re-installing the brace only took about 10 minutes.

    Just installed the Grimmspeed Master Cylinder Brace and the Perrin Performance Pitch Stop Mount.. IMMEDIATE difference in even casual starting/stopping.. reduced boating/bouncing feeling in starts/shifts, and completely removed that 1st .5-1 inch squish in the brake pedal when braking. I LOVE IT!

    ya I know lots of people dont like them, but I think they make the car look better... and I live in WA where it rains and it keeps my sideskirts/rear a lot cleaner.
