Oops already installed it. It's not too bad, actually. The throw paired with MTEC springs are wild, honestly almost TOO short. That said, it doesn't feel bad, it's just a bit clunkier than stock. What worries me is it coming loose one of these days.

That said, yes gimme gimme.

Sent you a PM.

Damn, you gotta tell me how that feels. I feel like I'd be money shifting all over town haha

Edit: Side note, but I LOVE the bushing that the Quickshifter comes with. Anyone know if it's compatible with a stock/STI shifter? Would save me the $30 for the perrin one!

Not at all. We had a couple people make a 2 hour drive from Quebec.
I will be sure to remember that next year when we figure out a date.

The STI shifter adds just a minor amount of change from the OE but it's a quality piece. So far, the quickshifter + STI feels amazing! Even though I put red threadlocker on it, I still have reservations of the bolt actually staying on. Time will tell!

I had that TuRD Quickshifter in there and it wasn't as noticeable as I thought as the 86's shifter throws are short to begin with, compared to my old GS-R. When the Quickshifter's bolt started to get loose, and finally came out completely, that was scary. Never knew if I could get it in gear or not.

Did a little soundproofing. ~640g of Dynamat in the trunk, and a before/after test drive with Decibel X Pro on my phone. Shows a teeny tiny ~1.5dB(A) decrease in similar conditions on my test loop. It does sound a bit different, too. I'll take it!

The still squeaked as I rotated the bar...I pulled it off again and notice a bit of material sticking out from the edge of the bushing. I found an inner sleeve that appeared to have not been formed correctly when made. I looked that the other side and saw the same thing. These are the new greaseless bushings but all of the area wasn't covered by this sleeve. I used a file and needle nose and removed the sleeves completely. I took the whole assembly apart including the end links. I regreased the bushings and used Break-free CLP-4 everywhere.

So far, I'm only getting a minor squeak/bind when going up a driveway/incline. I'm very happy and hope it stays this way! If not, I'll order new bushings. The rear bar makes a huge difference.

Making the same noises again, now!

Next up, rubber bushings off a 2017+

Was going for a short drive today and pulled up at a stop sign. As I'm about to make the left turn, I hear and feel a loud "boom" and felt my care get hit from the rear. I got out and though there was some minor cosmetic damage to the bumper, the trunk seems fine. Traded insurance information and filed a claim.

I'm pretty sad about the whole ordeal given it's my first auto collison and am worried about the car's resale value.

Put some sound deadening in the door cards, since I was taking them off to change the speakers for upgraded units.

Replaced the bumper mounts near the headlights. Cover never stayed on right after installing my CAI.

I love the foam- how is it adhered? Let us know the results.

Those speakers seem sweet, but goodness that's a lot of money for a pair of speakers with a Toyota connector
