just installed Whiteline transmission mount insert on my 2014 GT/CS (pics inside)

(pics below)
I have a 2014 GT/CS 6 MT and much like other 5.0 owners I have the same shifter lockout issue from 2nd to 3rd. I knew the Whiteline insert WOULDNT solve my problems but for 31 dollars, why not try it? in addition I did order a Blowfish bracket a week ago and was told by CJ that its been backordered and to expect it in another 2 weeks or so. the install of the insert took maybe 20 seconds or so. getting the car jacked up took longer.

Ok so my thoughts on it so far. I drove it for about 2 hours and did both types of driving: normal and WOT

Normal:
starting in 1st gear and driving on forward felt different right away, for one thing the notchy crunchiness is gone completely and when you shift its a solid feeling that you ARE in the gear that you selected. I also noticed my shifter doesn't bounce around as much either (stock shifter BTW) and driving normal with TC on/off made no difference.

WOT:
With TC on I started from a dead stop and I was able to powershift into 2nd from 1st far more smoothly than before however I still got locked out in 3rd. this was expected since I knew it would solve my issue but I wanted to try it out anyway.

With TC off I was able to go from 1st to 2nd no problems and I was even able to powershift into 3rd...and into 4th! Imagine the smile on my face and I pushing it to redline per each shift too. Of course ive been locked out with TC off in the past but every run I did with TC off post install, not a single lockout. with TC on it was a hit and miss.

Now for the question on everyones mind: hows the noise and vibration?
There is NO vibration what so ever. The noise has increased but its not bad noise IMO, it sounds like the engine got louder and to be honest-I like it I think any car person would like to hear a bit more grunt from their engine but I honestly do not feel any vibration at all at any RPM or gear.

WORDS OF ADVICE:
USE ANOTHER JACK TO HOLD UP THE TRANS WHEN THE CAR IS SUSPENDED, IT WILL BEND AND YOU DONT WANT THAT.

BUY SOME GREASE FROM YOUR LOCAL AUTO STORE, YOULL NEED IT.

DONT TRY TO SUPERMAN PUNCH IT IN THERE, GENTLY EAS IT IN THEN TAP THE 3 POINTS TO MAKE SURE ITS IN AND THATS IT!

overall, id say you cant go wrong by spending 31 dollars and getting rid of the notchiness for good.

Now that I've seen this I'm sure I'll get this now. I put my SR bracket on this would be a nice upgrade to go along with it as well.

its worth the money IMO, its not a full on solution but paired with a bracket and it becomes a smoother shift. It may vary on each car i guess in terms of vibration but i have 0 vibration and beautiful sound added to the already nice grunt the coyote puts out.

I will say that I noticed a slight increase in NVH when I installed mine. Install was super easy though. I installed it at the same time as a braided clutch line and MGW shifter using the harder bracket bushing.
I can't isolate the noise to the shifter or the whiteline bushing, but I'm guessing it's the whiteline because it seems to come from the floor where the mount attaches. Basically you just hear the trans spinning and making its usual noises.
I only notice it with windows up and music quiet, so basically never.
