You can har some very slight gear whine with the radio off and driving low speeds.
same setup but with the Street duro Revshift, make the front diff very noticeable in the cab and got me paranoid for a while

Thinking about removing the twisted tuning mount and adding a small quantity of window weld on a new oem mount

Ok so some good news taking to a vendor and they said they have parts coming to them so they can start making poly insets for us and possibly a whole replacement for us too. Will keep you guys posted. What do you guys think is a fair price for some poly inserts ?

Not worth discussing until we see the actual prototype.
I bet we won't see it by the end of next year.
I was told to ask about pricing from them so here i am.

Well a brand new oem unit from FCP is about 50$ and the TT unit is 250$. I feel like 100$ is fair. I'd buy one at 100$.

I bought a NEW OE mount, then found out the factory mount at 60k miles is still fresh.
I also happen to have 60 duro meter rated poly liquid designed for molds....

Hmmm... I CAN make inserts in the factory with some release agents and then put them into the OE, in two pieces, then hold them down with stainless machine screw and locking nylon nut.

Anyone up for it? I have enough fluid for three or so.

I made a thing. Just one side, haven't had time for the other.

Also filled the front control arm bushings. Those ain't coming out.

I think one can fill it in place with duct tape and syringe to keep it in place. BUT, it must cure for 12-16 hours before driving.

Someone already bought it. Working on the car right now. Will make some later if I still have left over.

Notice the metal brackets for furniture corner bracing? Necessary to pull it out, even with grease.
