Sounds like the 2nd gear synchronizer is shot. Been power shifting?

There's no easy fix other than having a reputable trans shop go through it or opt to replace the tranny w/a good used one.

+1. Mine have been going for along time in 2nd and 3rd but since I changed my driving habits they've been lasting. First, shift no later than 6,100rpms if your cars modded, if not shifter much sooner. Take a little more time shifter, dont shove it into gear, kinda just let it guide into gear.

I ment 6.1k max (if your cars modded, if it doesnt have a CAI or exhuast probably 5,750max) when racing around.

The reason is your power drops off after 5,600ish stock and shifter a bit after that is probably the best as far as times go. But even worst shifter later you go from making say (btw, im just throwing out #s now) 85whp at 6,300rpm to 105whp and more tq at 4k rpms (when you shift into the next gear) and that surge of power isn't healthy

Well I usually shift at 3k to 4k not more and when I "do" race the max I go to is 5k. but anywayz I hope that it isnt too expensive to have my problem repaired... or Ill just buy a short shifter from Kinky I heard that it helps.....
My plan is to get a short shifter ,a new clutch systeme, big brakes , the KW suspension ( since cobra suspension isnt repling to my e-mail)
