Hi guys,

I finally got everything working pretty good on my car and now I have a small problem with 3rd gear. Seems on hard acceleration the syncros going into third don't do their job right and as a result I have a little grind. It's only happened a couple of times as once it did it the first time I was real careful not to shift hard into third. A couple of questions

1- Do you think that a tranney oil change may help? Car has 50k on it with original tranney oil.

2-If not is there better syncros available? My car is not stock anymore and I guess the added torque of the car winds out the gears a little quicker that maybe the oem syncros just can't handle it or do they sound damaged?

Thanks
Eric
