Whiteline transmission bushing

I purchased the bushing but haven't installed it yet. I read different reviews but is drilling a hole in the center of the bushing worth doing to help reduce the NHV. Thanks!!

Whiteline transmission bushing

Subscribed, wondering the same thing. I've also read that cutting part of it will reduce it as well.

I have it in my car and to say the truth it isn't an exaggerated amount of nvh, its barely noticeable.

I put it in my 2016 without drilling a hole and i get a good amount of nvh.

I put it in my old 2011 and drilled a hole and nvh was not noticeable.

So i will probably take it back out of my 2016 this week and drill a hole.

Thanks for the feedback. I was going to install it today but wanted to hear from some of the members first. So 3/4" hole is the size to drill it?

Yea that is about right. I would suggest drilling the hole and getting it right the first time so you don't have to redo any work. Better safe then sorry.

Even if the hole wasn't needed, it's not gonna hurt anything. So if anything, definitely do it.

Sounds good. Will try to get my car on a lift this week also to drill a hole in mine. Been raining a lot in my area in Texas. Supposed to be (hopefully) hot this week so praying the water is dried up cuz i cant get my car to my uncle in-law's lift due to all the mud. 😂😭

Indeed guys, the hole in the middle takes away most of the NVH. I used a 1" to make the hole.

Is there a v6 version of this or will the GT bushing work? Everyone I see says 11-16 GT.

What are the benefits of this mod?

It is part of the 95% of the car that is identical between the V6 and GT.

The only time that i have really noticed an increase in NVH is while engine braking as i cross 2500 rpm. It stops shaking the car after crossing 1900.

Proving to my fellow racers that the disdain that some GT drivers have for V6 drivers is unfounded, one results archive at a time since 2013.

Yes it wil fit the V6 mt82, and it's designed to reduce deflection when shifting at high speed. It helps your driveline gets more rigid.

So I installed it today after work pretty easy job. Ok the pros about it is that my shifter seems to be somewhat firmer and the clanking from my shifter bracket is very quiet while driving down the road. Now for the cons, the vibration is fairly noticeable especially inbetween shifts under normal driving. The main issue is when the dual mass flywheel decides to vibrate it's magnified about 3 times over stock. I believe this is why this part is listed for the GT only. I did a few quick shifts nothing to harsh and its perfect. This is what to expect from a stiffer bushing. Im going to flex it some tomorrow morning on my way to work to see if a few 7k pulls will loosen it up some. To sum it up, its a nice part but as of now it not daily driver friendly in stop and go traffic. I'll update on it after a few hundred miles.

Thanks FF13 and yes I drilled the 3/4" hole and put a fair amount of grease on it.

Yea I forgot about the DMF vibration on the 3.7 until I drove my old 2011 the other day. I felt it during decel and I was like

Another reason I love my 5.0. lol


I mean, if you drag race the car, maybe pop this part in before you go. Otherwise, for the daily 3.7, I would say you probably don't need/want this. The 3.7 setup vibrates enough. lol

First drive to work this morning around 47 miles one way. On the interstate it wasn't bad until i got into some traffic. Every time I had to let off of the gas I got a fairly decent amount of vibration. The 3.7 is very unpredictable on when the flywheel wants to say hello. In stop and go traffic not very good for a daily driver, slow shifting gets a nice vibration in-between shifts.

Pros:
My transmission shifts great with the bushing. I was satisfied with just the Barton bracket but this really firmed up the shifts. Only with the car in motion the shifter is almost completely silent and very smooth.

Cons:
Does not like to be revved in neutral. Also if you like to slowly go thru the RPM band and slow shift to listen to your exhaust, the vibration is bad. At stop signs or red lights, as the AC compressor cycles it vibrates the car. On the interstate driving with the cruise on its smooth, any change of speed it vibrates.
I had a chance to get a 7k pull and in-between 5&7k the entire dash and console had a very bad vibration but it did chirp 3rd!!

Summary:
Nice built piece that does the job if you track your 3.7 often or don't mind vibrations. I don't want to give an aftermarket part a bad reputation due to it being designed to increase shifting performance. I'm going to give it till Friday to see if it loosens up some.

I have the Steeda version of the transmission mount insert on my Ecoboost for over 20k miles now. I have not noticed any increase in NVH under any conditions. I would guess it is a softer durometer urethane.

It also completely eliminated the missed 3rd and 5th gear shifts I was experiencing during aggressive driving.

A couple of weeks ago I replaced the stock shifter bushing with a urethane piece from Energy Suspension. This firmed up the feel of the shifter nicely with no NVH penalty and is another no brainer mod at $13.

Today I did my second modification to the bushing. I read on the svt forum where a guy cut the complete bottom center section out. Seem a lil far fetched but his write up was convincing so out with the sawzall and bench vise. To my surprise 90% of the vibration is gone and it performs the same. Half of bushing same performance lol. I googled whitline transmission bushing and the thread popped up.

I actually cut mine into 3 sections and drilled a 1" hole in the center. Solid and you wouldn't even notice it was installed.
