    Yeah had mine done a few days ago with a madness short shift adapter.....it was a big upgrade in my opinion....the whole car is just way more stable under load and shifting is way better....i got a little vibration down low but that's it.........

    Fiat is very lazy.....i recently just did these two mods along with the ecu and gopedal.......man this car is basically ten times better lol.....these upgrades could of been incorporated at the factory for very little money lol

    Havent tried it but I read that some trim off a little of the torque mount to fine-tune it and dial out some vibes.

    The vibration and shuddering is temporary. Once you adjust to the new feel you will modify your habits slightly and it won't be noticed at all. Happens to everyone, no trimming needed unless you just want to do it.

    I've had mine in for a few years now and the only time I notice it is on the rare occasion I get lazy/sloppy taking off in first, otherwise I have long forgotten about the mod and consider it normal.

    Honestly I think the torque mount just makes people more aware of the fact that many ride the clutch more than they need to :P

    Yeah it's less after a quarter tank even.
    Or I've finally learned to drive stick.

    It does require a fairly quick relearn but totally worth the price and effort for such an improved feel!
