Has anyone installed these? If so did it help at high RPM shifting? Especially between 2nd and 3rd? Thanks!

The engine and the K member were designed to support the engine. If you want to reduce the movement of the engine use stiffer motor mounts. I have seen busted bell housings where they were tied to torque limiters.

I did find that the urethane motor mounts improved the shift performance and made the front of the car feel stiffer.

I also put a brace between the K member and the radiator support tied to the sway bar mount. I can't say for certain I can feel that.

It is only partially installed in this picture.

You will feel a little more NVH with the brace and torque limiters but if your car was like mine and didn't come with a K memeber brace to start with it is worth it. I've also got a set of Prothane engine mounts and the SS braided clutch line. My problem has never been the 2-3 just the high rpm 1-2 wants to grind a little.

Ya lower rpm fine..... 5500 and up forget it I can't hit third or fourth... I have a ram clutch and a billet flywheel would grind now cant put into gears at high rpm. I also have a hurst was thinking about putting the stock back just to see if that helps. I have heard motor mounts like u said. Thx for your help guys.

Hope it is not my tr3650 on it's way out.

agree, starting to see that this is pretty common. the clutch feels great... even with the stock clutch it would grind. I have Royal Purple tranny fluid also hoping that would help.

Tonight I think I will throw the stock shifter in if I get a chance and take it out for a run... I have had the hurst in for 3 yrs, but really dont think it will help but it is worth a shot.

The Amsoil ATF made mine much smoother.
