thats what i am thinkin but idk much bout manual trans

just take it into your local mechanic and ask him to have a look at it. im pretty much in the same boat. but you could also try double clutching...that would match your trannie speed to your engine...

but the funny thing is that dont work as well as it seems it still dont wanna go into gear wit doin that

I wouldn't double clutch at 8000 rpm's....that's lame...double clutching is for low rpm's engine's

yea i kno its not a drag car but it is set up for it tho and i am gettin a new trans in a few weeks

syncronizers are bad in tranny mine grinds 3rd any higher than 2500 rpms

1,025

syncros! its kinda common. you can try to burnish them but i doubt itll help. just rebuild it or get a junkyard trans.
