I have a weighted BFI knob and a spulen short shift already so I definitely need the bushings and bracket.
If you live somewhere hot you’ll really notice the difference with the bracket. When it’s cool out the plastic bracket is fine, but when you get the metal bracket in and you drive when it’s over 90 degrees out you really notice how much that plastic part flexed.

Do them all. It's glorious with zero slop
I need to finally get off my ass and do the Super Pin, since it's the only thing that's missing. I've got everything else that DG offers. I just don't have a drill.

Even with the metal bushings? Eh, I guess I don't live somewhere hot anymore. In the summer, it's 90F for maybe 3 days here and 75-85F is much, much more normal. Huge change from the 95-115F summer days of my entire life up until this move.

Got a few things installed. Fluidampr pulley, 034 Motorsport Engine/Transmission mount ,
Unibrace RB. Also new NGK spark plugs .

drive back was pretty fun, engine definitely feels like it's running smoother. I'm pretty sure it's all due to the Fluidampr pulley. My car is well maintained and fairly low mileage 48,500 so it not like the engine was running rough to begin with. As I'm writing this I feel like getting in and going for a drive lol. I would highly recommend this pulley to anyone that's modified their car in anyway. The price may seem a bit high, but after driving it I can say that it's very justified and I wish I did it sooner.

I haven't notice drastic difference in nvh with the new mounts, maybe a tiny bit but it's barely noticeable.
The Fluidampr seems to be doing a great job minimizing any new nvh the mounts may have created. I Had the AC on , did a reverse and idle test. Everything passed by ocd test lol

My next mounts will be bfi. Failed to return the 034 ones in time. But for daily driving and occasional spirited driving on the back roads 034 ones will work. I don't drag race or track my car . If I get 50k out of the mounts I'll be happy.

I haven't really noticed a difference yet with the unibrace rb, the drive back way mainly straight roads. Some twisties will probably be a blast .

Some pics , oh and I found out my drivers side , mount was broken 😄. Passenger side was fine almost no play. But drivers side definitely had a good amount of play.
Old mounts had 48,500 miles

I was living in south Texas when I did all my shifter upgrades. Started with a Dieselgeek and it felt ok, but like I was bending something when shifting. Next I upgraded the bracket bushings on the plastic bracket and it felt good in the morning but it went back to feeling like I was bending something when it warmed up for the day. Then I bought an OEM metal bracket and the feel was consistent at all temperatures. Switching back to OEM fluid and getting a weighted shift knob made it as good as I imagine a cable shifter can get.

If you can’t feel any inconsistency between your warmest temperatures the plastic bracket is probably just fine.
