You say on your site that the "Clunk Killer" adds a lot of NVH. Do you think you could quantify it a little more? Is it more noise than going from all-season tires to max performance tires? If the Clunk Killer is too much, does the Kartboy piece or your piece kill more clunk on its own?

Oh yeah, almost forgot... step, bump, step bump bump

Hi Flyboymike,

the whole bundle causes a whine/howl at exactly 40 and 70 miles per hour. It might cause one somewhere at 100+, but you should be worrying about other things than noise at those speeds. I wouldn't say it's loud buy you do know when you hit those speeds. the tranny whine upon deceleration will also be a bit more pronounced.

Either piece will stop the clunk it's just the difference on how it does it. I guess I can't really quantify how much something eliminates something when it eliminates something anyway so there's nothing left to compare - any philosophy majors want to handle that one?

Oh, and thank you for the bump!!

heard about the Klunk Killer from a friend... Im very interested in purchasing it (and the Kartboy shifter bushings front & rear), but i have a question.

If the bushings decrease the movement in the rear end, and add NVH, what is absorbing the driveline shock now? When driving aggressively would it hurt the drivetrain more or less than before?

Thanks!

It's a good enough question to warrant a public response don't you think? Perhaps in the car part review forum?

Fair enough - the reason for my short response to him here was because I was literally headed out the door to go home, and had just spent a little while replying to him via PM. Here's the exact, unedited portion of the PM in regards to this:

If the end doesnt move as much during load transfer, where is that stress being absorbed now?

The bushings are not superduper, incredibly stiff. In fact, we think they are about the same stiffness as the STi upgrades. So there is some flex. Due to this some of the energy is absorbed by the bushings. Some more is transmitted to the rear subframe carrier bushings (which fortunately don't make a clunk noise when rapidly loaded), and the rest goes through the drivetrain to the wheels. Now keep in mind you're not going to see an increase in WHP due to this, the amounts of energy to smash the stock bushings isn't much to begin with. In fact, it will be the same amount of energy that is transmitted when the stock bushings reach their maximum compression point, and the diff studs are essentionally pressed as hard as they can be in the mount. Does that make sense?

Clint's message makes perfect sense. Basically, instead of transferring energy (because it cannot be created nor destroyed, I heard that somewhere once) across soft rubber bushings where a good majority is absorbed, our bushings will transfer it to the subframe and eventually chasis of the car. This is where the increase in noticeable NVH originates. You recognize and increase because energy is being transferred through the car instead of being lost in the bushings.

As far as harm to the rear end the bushings are not causing any damage whatsoever to the rear end....if anything they would help. Reason being is when the clunk occurs the diff is being slammed into the carrier it rides in. Any shock to the drivetrain is going to cause issues with wear and breakage (think of launching your car, the stress that is created and the shock to the drivetrain). The bushings are going to reudce this shock as much as possible giving the diff a "smoother ride" on its carrier.

Hopefully that makes sense.

Big news for the 5mt folks!!!!

We've added the WRXnEFFECTS bundle as a 2wb (two week bundle) to the site. WRXDriftR had this really sweet idea (he came up with the name too). You get the Kartboy shifter bushings (front and rear) PLUS the TiC klunk killer in one package for $123!!!!eleven!!!

And that's with free shipping in the US. This is one heck of a package that is only going to be here until the 28th.

Here's the direct link:

From searching around nasioc to see if there are any questions that I can answer it occurred to me that not many people here know about our Super Shifter Set for the 04 and 05 STi.

The super shifter set is a great setup designed to improve the feel of the shifter setup on the 04 adn 05 STi. It cleans up the forward and back vague feeling of the shifter while at the same time cleans up a lot of the side to side slop that tends to develop in the stock setup. Additionally, it gets you a much shorter throw through the use of the Kartboy STi shift lever.

Here's what you get in the set:
- Kartboy STi 6mt lever
- Kartboy STi 6mt front shifter stay bushing
- Kartboy rear shifter stay bushing
- TiC 04-05 STi shifter linkage bushings

The price for this kit is $230 and shipping is free in the US.

Here's the direct link:
http://turninconcepts.com/product_in...products_id=12

Here's a pic of everything you get in the set:

Our latest round of bars that went out USPS has been slow for everyone. We're not going to be shipping the sways using that method any more.

The klunk killer itself is a special price that saves you a few bucks.

We also have the same pricing as Kartboy for his Lever combo plus package. That gets you the WRX lever + the front and rear bushings.

In other words if you buy the klunk killer and the lever combo plus you get special pricing by default, plus you get free shipping in the US. Not a bad deal really.
