I'm sending in my car to have the tranny rebuilt(mr52). I am curious if anybody can suggest anything to do to it to make it better. I want to upgrade the syncro's, but what is the best type???

is it wise to use solid rubber tranny mounts????

I'm also adding a short shifter to it can somebody suggest any one's to use?

Any other suggestions would be helpful.

thanks Sean.

The B&M Ripper is the only shifter available. Rebuilding the stocker is not a bad idea and much cheaper. Anyway, the stock syncros are best, and there are no upgrades really available for it. You can do better on the clutch and if you want an aluminum flywheel, it will improve performance. Always replace the clutch slave cylinder, pilot bearing, and rear main seal while you are at it. Solid rubber tranny mounts are a smart upgrade over the stock fluid ones.
