    I did the pitch stop mount first. Very easy sprayed the bolts with PB Blaster then unbolted the old one and put the new one in. The Kartboy mount is just such better quality. Start up is much louder and best part....no bucking between gears. Nice and solid thank you Kartboy

    And for the time everybody was waiting for.......the shifter bushings it would have went a lot better if lining up the bolts for the rear bushing wasn't such a *****. That's the pesky rear bushing. Move the heat shield out of the way. Best thing I ever did while installing.
    there's the front bushing. Probably the easiest part.

    and finally my car put back together. Shifts so much more solid and quicker. With combination of the mount and the new bushings there is more cabin noise from the transmission but once you crank the stereo its gone thanks again Kartboy for your high quality parts would never go a different route

    Got to test it a little today went for a trip to Monterey. But couldn't really hit boost cuz i had the family in the car. Will test it out tomorrow more thoroughly but I can tell you guys Catless with the N1 Exhaust is f****** loud. Not annoyingly loud but a lot louder then with just the catback

    You would be well advised to delete your TGVs.
