With the GTO being renound for its sloppy and less precise gear changes, and the fact rubber doesn’t age well, I’m considering reterfying this issue whilst I’m addressing my interior gaiters.
After some reading I’ve noticed there are various options to correct the linkage bushings.
OEM, Brass, Poly, Delrin… All new technology since the car was born with obvious advantages.
I’ve read successful and unsuccessful installs using Brass which seems to be the most common option for the linkages in the engine bay.
Can anyone provide insight on any installs and experiences using these aftermarket kits.
I want to restore my car to original spec, with any sort of hidden improvements if possible without overall affecting the oem feel. Are these kits more for hard-wearing track racing? Harder gear changes? Any insight is welcomed. I’d like a precise modern feel yet keeping an easy oem gear change.
