Installing a pitch stop mount in your Subaru Impreza / WRX improves the shift and feel of the engine, and is a common modification for performance enthusiasts. We noticed an increase in NVH, however the improved feel was well worth it.
This applies to every Impreza from 1994 – 2014.
Tools and Parts Required
- Pitch Stop Mount
- Socket Set
Remove the intercooler to reveal the OEM pitch stop mount, which connects the gearbox to the firewall.
Unbolt the pitch stop mount and remove from the vehicle.
