What a huge difference it makes. I recommend it to anyone guys. There is a bit of vibration in the cabin of the car but the shifts are much more crisp and precise. Well worth the money spent. *wiggle*

Yep, I did this a while ago, it rules. The vibration isn't really too noticable, although I can hear the synchro's now when I downshift.

how much did this mod cost? How hard is it to install?

I don't know how much my bushings cost in CDN funds off hand, but the instal is super easy, take off the 4 bolts off the tranny brace and the 4 nuts off the bushings, swap the bushings, and replace all the hardware again....done.

It cost me for parts plus the labour plus taxes $212. Really cheap in comparison to the difference in performance.

Better shifting, makes it harder to misshift.

The full kit (stiffer bushing, and enforce cup) costs $70US, or roughly $100-110 CDN, plus installation. I believe I paid under a $100CDN shipped.
