return the pitch stopper. Save yourself 100 bones. Purchase Paranoid Fab fender braces instead. The pitch stopper is a waste of money.

I can feel my pitch stop working just fine. it makes shifting smoother. but i got it for cheaper than 100.

the group N pitchstop is less than $50. Whoever paid $100 for one got hosed.

Engine mounts are a two person job. I can be done with one, but its so much easier to have one guy pushing the motor around and the other guy lining up the mounts into the crossmember.

Pitch stopper did nothing but slightly increase NVH during high RPM's on a my moderately tuned beast. The Group A CNC'ed aluminum stopper is great looking and that's about it. Same weight as OEM and no difference in throttle response, although the engine does move around a bit less when reving in neutral (visual observation). Might make a difference on a 400+whp STI, but for our cars... not so much.

1+ to two sets of hands, I would vote for ramps, jack stands, etc to get the vehicle to a manageable work height as well as provide clerance for working underneath the car. Another reference in case you need it: http://www.northursalia.com/modifica...rivetrain.html
