nearly 4 years later my rear insert flairs out similar to yours Kris... kinda always has, but nothing severe enough to negatively effect the advantages (suppose i'm curious as to how the rear 'manly' inserts seat compared to the 'powerflex')
over that span I haven't really notice a difference in vibrations/cabin noise, but it certainly has crispened up the shifting (by obvious design)
Hi all - quick question on this job...re the rear mount inserts.
I’m struggling to get the main 17mm bolt free, despite the nit on other side being removed. The mount itself is entirely off the subframe and it’s loose as you’d expect. Have tried heat, penetrating fluid etc.
Anyone else have this problem & if so what was done to overcome?
Hopefully you already figured this out but just in case... I just hammered the main bolt out (used a flat punch to drive it out of the hole). I did it with everything connected to the car.

In 2014 I stripped my newly acquired Exige Cup 240 track car third gear. I had trans rebuilt with JUBU 3rd and Fourth bought from Monkey Wrench. Now, I am replacing broken second/first synchro and I find that 3rd and fourth are very loose on the splines. The gears even wobble. Splines look...
I am finishing up the install of the Inokinetic Ultimate shift package, which includes the Short shift linkage. While, for the most part, the directions/video provided by Inkinetic is accurate and helpful, I found the short shift linkage somewhat perplexing. This post describes in detail how to...
I have a British, 2002 K series elise, which I decided to upgrade by installing a reconditioned VVC head, and with the Piper solid cam conversion, although I chose not to install vernier pulleys.
I have the 285H cams, and its running a stock ECU (for the time being).
I've noted before that I love the results of my Torque200 tune, but one of the drawbacks is the hard start. It takes 2-3 cranks before it now whimpers to a start. How many folks experience this same issue?
