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...

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

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