The only downside is that with the new mounts, it increased noise/vibration by just a hair (I got used to it within a day), but the mod is definitely worth it.
Yea I don't know the exact effects of my group n trans mount either. Did rear diff and pitch stop at the same time. Increased noise and vibration are definitely there.

Yup, the noise and vibration increased but not significantly where its annoying. Honestly,the car feels like its got a bigger engine with the slight vibration increase. How has the rear diff and pitch stop affected your driving/feel of the car? Is it worth it?

My mods are (drivetrain wise)

Kartboy short shifter
Kartboy rear shifter bushing
Kartboy front shifter bushing
Kartboy transmission crossmember bushings
Group N transmission mount
Group N motor mount

How did they get your wife out of the kitchen and into the car? Did she have to stop making your sandwich?

Right on! Just a preference for me but I like doing all on the parallel circuit... others can take a hit when their neighbors short out..

The only downside is that with the new mounts, is that there is a slight louder than normal transmission whine going on 1st/2nd gear, and I actually enjoy it. So yes, the mod is definitely worth it.

Now with Both Group N transmission and Motor mounts installed, the car's engine response has significantly improved. The shifting feels solid, and even more precise. The car overall feels more planted, and balanced. There is a slight increase in cabin noise/vibration with the Group N engine mounts installed, but I don't mind it at all.
Much appreciated. Looks like my next mods!

As I was leaving work today I noticed that I got f'ing doored on the driver's side. Someone with a red car. I know it didn't happen today because I actually parked next to my 2005 twin. Tomorrow I'm hunting down that red car in the parking lot. The only two red vehicles in the lot when I left had no scuff on the doors.

I was only able to find 8" gutter guard chicken wire. I had to splice two pieces together for my lower grill opening. My fingers were bloody by the time I was done. Uuhhgg..

I definitely wasn't bloody by the end , but it was an insane amount of very detailed dremel work. Be prepared to spend hours on this to make it look nice...
