Hey guys im just wondering for all you 5 speed owners
when you are in either 1st or 2nd giving it a bit of go say 4k rpm
does the gearstick move about 3 - 4cm to the right?

is this normal engine/gearbox twist?
or you think the gearbox mounts or engine mounts have karked it?

any help would be good thanks

yer it is normal to move a little i think from the torque of your engine, my worked 5 litre did it and the rubber was brand new, id be in 2nd doing about 3500RPM's and plant it the gear stick would move.............

Vs Series 3 Ute, manual. Hz Pano 5.0L injected
Mine didnt move then my mate borrowed it and now it does the same and moves about 3 cms in 1st and 2nd...and i've noticed that in 1st and 2nd that if I take off my feet off the pedals and try and pull it out of gear it wont slip out but it will in 3rd 4th and 5th :(
WTF is going on...broken mount somewhere???
