I would highly, highly suggest the cusco bushings, they seem to be the hardest ones out there, and offer the greatest advantages. Also, I would not suggest installing a $300 shift kit when its only the lever and the bushings that are different (didn't notice any difference between the bushings where they meet to the back of the tranny tunnel). But thats for you to decide =)
I think Kartboy bushings are probably harder (I have Cusco). Doesn't N1 or somebody make a bushing set that is Delrin? This is a hard white nylon and would be harder than either Cusco or Kartboy...
Edit: I just pulled out my RS shifter and replaced it with a Graham Goode. I have the Cusco bushings. I have noticed a buzzing/humming noise that seems to be coming through the shifter since I changed it. It isn't bad, and there isn't any visible vibration, but I didn't notice it before with the RS shifter. I wonder if the rubber in the middle dampens the vibration on the RS shifter?
