Vorshlag has new hours: 8am-5pm CT
Vorshlag is an Authorized dealer for Whiteline products and we are now offering some exciting new parts for the FT86 chassis (Subaru BRZ/Scion FR-S/Toyota GT86). This kit is a polyurethane shifter bushing insert that fills a massive void in the OEM transmission bushing. Installing this bushing took minutes from underneath and it really tightened up the shift feel, but added a tiny bit of NVH in the process (noise/vibration/harshness). The main bolt from the bottom secures the insert in place. Very easy install and very worthwhile for anyone wanting a better shift feel or anyone doing competition events where this is allowed. It has a little extra vibration at 750-800 rpm and a little more engine noise at 2500-3500 rpm. It isn't too harsh and has become less noticeable after driving with it for a while.
Here is a great video from Whiteline that shows footage from the transmission tunnel under hard acceleration. As you can see, the OEM voided bushing allows for a lot of movement of the transmission, but once the Whiteline insert is installed all of that excess, sloppy movement is gone.
