I think I will leave it up to my GF to buy it as a personalized gift, otherwise 25 extra for engraving doesnt tickle my fancy.

Edit: Wow he has wood ones. Hmmmm. That could go nicely with my wooden E-brake handle. Are they the same as voodoo ***** just wood? or what?

Cancelled my order with Goodwin last night and call Joe Knobmeister just now. He is going to hook me up(such a nice guy btw), and the best part is, with some clever negotiation my GF is buying it for me as a anniversary present.

Thanks for the tip Ben, I owe you one.

I used to have this problem bad, one of my syncros went so I replaced the trans over this past winter, then I was still having the same problem. Come to find out, one of my motor mounts was completely broken. I made some semi solid mounts, and it got alot better, but it is still really notchy under full boost.

Didn't someone on here make a engine brace that fixed this? Ben I think?
