Hey guys, i recently added a powerflex bushing to my transmission mount due to rough shifting. Now that it is in it feels great when i drop the clutch or let it out even a little hard, theres no more jerkiness like before. Besides the delay from the electronic throttle body, theres no more power delay! Although that feels great, the shifting itself doesnt. The gears are sometimes difficult to change, sometimes they feel amazing. Is the dipstick for the m66 under my air box? I havent seen any sign of one!

Not much use on a manual tranny though!
Why do you say that? The dipstick is in the same location, isn't it?

EDIT--

Oops. My bad! Didn't realize the manual had no dipstick. Follow advice below.

Oh, oops the subject does say "manual" doesn't it. bzzzt..

Correct, no dipstick on the manual. You have to crack the fill port and look. Thread on that: http://forums.swedespeed.com/showthread.php?161326

All this stuff is in the sticky.

I seriously doubt any of what you describe has much to do with oil level. But many have reported smoother operation after a proper change.

Damnit, the images are dead now. I need to do this too soon.
