I got this done last week and holy cow the shifts were smooth as hell. We have the exact same car (08 sportshift roadster) so you will notice a nice difference.

I actually have an 09 6 speed coupe, but glad to hear you're noticing a difference. Did you go with the OEM BOT oil?

Have you guys experienced the same noise? Is it just supposed to be that way?
I've yet to notice any bearing type notices from the 6-speed nor 7-speed, not saying it'll never happen but being your on a 2nd transmission..I'd be thinking it's not trans related.

I've had a few driveshaft front and rear bearing go. Which this also wears out the pilot bearing. Not sure if the pilot wears first and then the shaft bearing or vise versa. So pilot bearing gets replaced along with sending the shaft out for replacement of shaft bearings...btw, this noise actually echos and sounds like it's inside the transmission.

Not saying this is your issue, but what I've had in the past.
