my friend has a 91 LS with a b16 swap and i was wondering/tryin to help him out, why it always grinds going into 3rd gear. the only time it doesnt grind is when he only takes it up to a RPM like 3500 and then shifts or when he upshifts :roll:

same things going on in my car right now. i JUST got a new clutch and flywheel and now i have to go back in there. sucks dont it. ohh by the way...change all the synchros all at once not just the onebefore third. especially if youre going to be racing and shifting hard

in my car im actually just going to get a gsr trans from the junkyard. if the car is an ls like mine you may want to look into doing this because the gear ratios are closer and it wont be that much more than just getting new synchros
