I have a sti 6 speed grid on mine and no one ever asks. Yours looks cool though

A little more progress on my project. Thankfully the fiberglass work actually went well and I'm happy with the way it's coming together.

Here it is after 2 layers of fiberglass and 2 layers of Bondoglass for a little extra strength. Still needs some more sanding and than some regular Bondo body filler to smooth out the rough spots and ready it for primer.

Starting to come to life, I'm not a fan of the reverse scoop look, but good work

I have the modified group N from RCM and I don't find it too hard at all...

Did you not bother to read his post that you quoted? I thought he pretty clearly stated that he did it "to make the mount more vibration absorbing." And apparently it worked for him since he said, "It worked well as a 'happy medium' in my case."

Hooray for you! So your personal preferences for NVH should be the baseline for everyone else?

Whats the point of the scoop if you're running an FMIC anyway?

because clearly the best way to extract heat from the engine bay is to let it leave and immediately scoop back in behind the engine.

Well reading his process you'd know that the scoop is blocked off on the inside. And then he just redesigned it again. To make it more effective.

xluben posted about taking the factory WRX tranny mount, drilling a small hole, and filling the voids with, I think, silicone. Sort of a ghetto Group N. He said it did stiffen things up without adding too much NVH. Certainly cheaper and easier to try that first before hacking a Group N.

I went with a Torque Solution mount, Kartboy pitch stop, Whiteline cross-member bushings, Factory short shifter, Kartboy front and rear shifter bushings, and Anarchy Motive 1.5 pound shift knob. DEFINITE increase in NVH, but the way it shifts is worth it to me. Race Car.

I drilled holes in the corners of the voids I mapped out, then sawzall the rest out.

You probably don't know the engineers creed "everything is a compromise" the stock 5MT mount is super soft to quell the whiny gears they have to use to make the trans strong enough. The Group-N mount is the hardest rubber they could push through a mold for race teams that would have a solid mount if the competition rules would have let them.

At the time I wanted something in between that, and came up with a way to get it, and it worked. Everything is compromise.

I could say the same about you adding extra urethane to your Gp N mount ;-) I have learned in this game everyone has different opinions and priorities. You love NVH I don't. We mod to make it closer to how we like it.

I have done a bunch of drivetrain mounts that way over the years, started with window-weld, worked up to pouring casting urethane. I didn't do that for the Subaru trans mount, becuase I am not sure that it would have held up, the mount is so open. I found from years of doing this there is little adhesion between the rubber and urethane, so you have to rely on casting the urethane i around the original rubber to sort of capture it in. I have a feeling casting into the stock trans mount would not have lasted, but never tested so I can't be sure. I know a few others have done it.

I also already owned the Group-N mount, that's how I found out it had too much NVH for me. I've certainly wasted or hacked up more expensive parts than that ;-) It's only a tranny mount. That said this car was my daily driver. When/if I have a Subaru again it'll be a fun/race car, I'll weld that trans solid right to the cross member, then I can really talk some smack on the Internets!

Any chance for a pitch black out picture?

Same as in Ontario, pay the fine. No demerit points as they can't prove who was driving the vehicle.

Painted them a while back. We were trying to find he time to make caster spacers but I got impatient and decided to go ahead and install them without.

The Hurst "T" handle is awesome. my buddy has one in his 62 ford falcon. when ever he has allowed me to drive his car, it just fits the hand so well. I feel i can throw the stick shift into gears with authority.

So wait Power6 and I modified a group-N mount to reduce NVH and you post up a pick of a pointlessly modified harden Group-N mount that increases NVH?
