What annoyed me was the HUGE buzz between 4k-3k rpm when engine breaking. Was more loke sound barrier braking. Don't have any of that now with it all trimmed back but car does feel as solid as when the inserts were full fat stock.

That's exactly the main issue still. Back off the throttle at high revs and the whole shell and interior go beserk. Grin

I’ll fit the mounts first and see if that solves my problems. If things are still a bit sloppy i’ll fit the Proflex insert. Having only had the clutch replaced 6 months ago though I’d have thought the garage would have flagged if the gearbox mount was shot but you dont know.

Would expect a good Porsche specialist to point it out and possibly OPC but doubt many others would.

Really you need to drop the gearbox to fit a new bush.

The amount of effort it took to get mine in, I wouldn't be able to apply with everything in the way.

So a Powerflex may be a halfway house until you drop the box for something else.

You don’t need to drop the box to replace the original bush. AGA tools in the USA have a tool that does it in situ. Costs $300...

Group buy anyone?

Floor

Good luck with that, first taking the old one out with the corrosion going on between the two metals, and then putting the new one in. I was smacking it with a big hammer after grinding a bevel on the leading edge of the bush.

Much much easier to cut the old bush out and fit the new with the box on the floor.

Mine have just arrived and there is a wider flange than I’d thought (been there before!) should I trim it down a bit more?

Also what is NVH 😊

Even if i has the box on the ground I would still opt for using a properly machined extraction tool, as opposed to improvising. So if I’m going to buy it, I’ll try do it in position first.

It will be next summer border funds allow I would say based on my recent splurge on suspension etc...

Powerflex did a product recall on them. If you contact them, they'll do a free swap for the new style.

I only ordeded them from PF on Monday so I hope they're the revised ones? Part number is PFR57-530-AA.

Thanks for the NVH definition, I'd guessed the N And V but not the H!

I just searched on there entering 2002 Turbo and under Engine - miscellaneous, 8 items come up.

Same part number as non Turbo though so I'm not sure if it's still using the Turbo search criteria or not.

This page. -

https://www.pelicanparts.com/catalog/SuperCat/0914/POR_0914_ENGMIS_pg2.htm#item9


A quick email and they'll tell you. I'm sure they'll have an option although how much more it is than the Rein ones I don't know.

I bought the Rein from Pelican when I was in Florida a couple of Xmas's ago.
Bargain. Standard and perfect for road use.

No they're for 996 but have 993 part number.

They're the ones I bought but I'm guessing it may still not help if the Turbo is different to the Carrera. Strange that the aftermarket ones are listed to fit Carrera and GT3 which is M96 vs Mezger.

An email to them is in order. Thumb
