Hey guys, though I haven't used the comfort version, I would imagine the NVH increase would be negligible at best. As I stated in my original post, the NVH increase I felt was minimal, and for the gain was quite worth it. If you're on the fence about it, I would suggest just purchasing the race for the better feel--that's just my opinion

you guys who have installed these insets, did you also upgrade your engine mounts too? Im loking at doing this but have not dropped the cash yet. And will these work on the 05?

I have. Did the STI Group N engine mount.

And looking back over the years, I probably would not have bothered with either of these mods.

I just removed my bushing after a couple months of going crazy from the huge increase in nvh. Totally not worth it and definitely not recommended.

I actually enjoy mine. I regret the Whiteline Rear Positive traction bushing though. lots of damn vibration in the seats at certain mphs. I love my group n engine mounts and rallitek 4eat tranny bushing. Pitch stop mount I'm meh on. that was not worth it either.

Yeah, I may have been a little harsh in my opinion. I don't think the rallitek 4eat tranny bushing is a bad product. I think people just need to be prepared for a large increase in nvh. That said, there are a couple different type of tranny bushings. Per their website and the quote below, there is a "soft" and "hard" version. I definitely got the hard version. Maybe you got the soft one.

RalliTEK has two different versions of our insert. One is soft for every day driving, and the second is hard for track use. The hard version can also be used for ever day street cars, but be aware that it will be a little noiser than our softer version.

I started running the soft version of the 4eat bushing at 32k. I liked the improved feel of the transmission at work. Overall for the price it's worth getting for higher mileage 4eats I wouldn't get the hard/race version of this bushing if this is your daily driver.

Just curious when you do the trans mount, are there bushings on the cross member that need to be switched like on the manuals?

I didn't see any but check the fsm for your car to be sure.

92xScott - for the Impreza there isn't anything that you need to remove. This may be different with your 92x, but I doubt it. Simply press it in and you're done.

What kind of engine mount could I use with this insert? I just got the insert for my Saabaru. And was thinking of some urethane engine mounts too. Forgot to mention, I picked up the race (hard) version

Just got the insert in. Now on to the engine mounts. Could I get away with the beatrush mounts? Or would that be too much for the trans mount insert?
