Well the vibration is felt in the drivers seat, my passenger wouldn't feel it.
You cannot feel it in the steering wheel, only in the seat.

The vibration is there at the higher RPM of 1st gear before shifting into 2nd and then up to about 3k in 2nd.

Once in 3rd gear and up you don't feel anything or in highway speeds.

And like I stated in my first post, seems like its more noticeable in the mornings when it's colder out.
