:-[ Alright alright, when i first got my car, in august or so, the tranny would grind oh so often. My stock shifter had a lot of play in it, so i ordered a MGW LTD short throw, and i also added Royal Purple Synchromax... I guess this wasnt the best idea, supposedly the T-45 doesnt go well with the royal purple stuff. Anyways, with the shifter its a lot better, but the 2nd gear is still weird. If you try to rip 2nd, it grinds.. If you try to downshift into 2nd, it pops out some times... :help2: Not too sure if i should swap the fluid out again, or if i should just deal with the issues until i can save some cash and just rebuild or buy a new tranny.. Oh man

popping out of second sounds like the synchros to me, a rebuild may be necessary :-[

Sounds just like mine used to. Then it started rattling at idle. I now sport a tremec t-45 out of a 99 cobra.

sounds like a bent shift shaft or a broken syncro. Mine started out the same way and now does it in 2nd and 3rd, come to think of it 4th at doing so hot either.

mine is a tremec TKO, guess its time to rebuild....
