Default Kartboy short throw shifter noise

I bought a kartboy short shifter and bushings combo for my 2014 Sti sedan. I installed it yester day and now I hear a Loud winding in 2nd gear all the way up until about 3k rpm's. I ziptied the reverse lock out cable up and away from the drive shaft! It doesn't really sound like something rubbing! Not sure if this is normal or if I need to fix something else with it!

Any ideas on what it could be?

Did you do the front and rear shifter bushings?
Grease the side pivots of the shifter and torque it at 8-10 pounds.

Normal. Stiffer bushings = more NVH.

Yes I did! Ahh I'll do that as soon as I get home! Thanks a lot Tom! I appreciate the reply! Another question! I know this sounds totally dumb and stupid, but ever since I installed the short shifter I feel like I lost power , motor wise! I know I know a SS would NOT effect power but I figured I had to ask!

unless you unhooked the battery, there's no possible reason for the car to drive any different power wise.
