Whiteline trans mount

Anyone have experience with this? I hear it adds significant NVH, but I also hear that cutting the large middle piece lowers the noise and still improves feel. I'm also curious if cutting the middle piece would hinder its performance. Would love to hear some feedback, as I'm about to pull the trigger on ordering it, thanks.Click image for larger version

Ummm. Maybe a dumb question but what does NVH stand for.

I did not cut mine. I do not mind the extra vibration or noise though. My suspension setup is noisy anyways so it does not bother me

I have one and recommend that you don't remove the center tab, as it helps to keep the insert in place.

If you don't want your car to sound like a rolling steel trash can you need to do one of two things. Either cut a 2" hole or shave off 1/2" or more from the end of the middle piece. I cut a 11/2 " hole and it works just fine with hardly noticeable NVH.

That is exaggerated

Yea I really hate NVH, I don't mind a faint change since I'm all about balance and don't care for having a full blown race car. I went thru that when I had the Barton w/ 2 post and it drive me nuts, I fixed that issue with the MGW... Literally 100% better

I'm just gonna order it, shave off the entire middle slot. I was really just curious if that takes away its functionality

i thought about just cleaning the mount well and filling the areas with urethane that the insert fills. it would do the same thing and i wouldnt have to worry about it slipping out. I dont care about alittle noise, i have a good radio. I just want the car to shift correctly all the time.

There is no way for it to slip out. Just order it, its $30 your over thinking it lol. And change the fluid

What do you think about me replacing the fluid with straight MT-90 or 2 quarts of MT-90 and one of Synchromesh to get a good broad viscosity fluid as a whole that still has good protection qualities?

That'll cost you about the same as the bushing, if you include the hassle/time and is not reversible. I hole sawed the centre tab with a ~2.5" hole saw and that cut down the NVH to a tolerable level for me and I'm pretty picky about such things. Can't say it was a life-altering difference but it was a bit better. A Steeda bracket and Modern Billet weighted billet knob were already in place on my car and both of them made more significant improvements.

Don't mix brands, but, you can mix Redline MT90 with MTL . I live in the west coast of Canada and I still found straight MT90 tolerable cold, way better than the factory QS, even a bit better than QDC. However, you could do what you suggest, or even go straight MTL, if cold shifting is at the heart of the issue, which it is in your case. Just don't use anything with a GL-5 rating, as that'll chew up synchros over the long haul. Has to be GL-4.

Depends the weather, Redline MTL worked for and is best of both worlds as far as weather is concerned
