Default Grinding in 2nd gear.

Is this a common problem with the 96's? I heard that the synchro's go bad fast. The 1-2 "grind" shift sucks.

Also, what do you guys think of a repairing the trans or should i just get a better one. Say a TKO 600

Get a MGW and adjust the shift stops correctly, also change the trans fluid. This should help.

And yes, the second gear grind is notorious on T45's. I would send your trans out to Promotion.

buy a used 03 t56, can get everything you need for cheaper than just the TKO itself, then just kick the gear up to a 3.55 if you want to make up for the slight performance you'll loose

Mike,

2nd is usually the first that goes for obvious reasons. I replaced the trans in my 95 last October. I went with a new TKO 500. The 500 is a nice set-up based on my plans for the car, but these things are pretty noisy. When I say noisy, a stong rattle coming from under the shifter at idle and in 5th gear at highway speed.

Drives me crazy. I've had it looked at by the install mechanic as well as several other people and have also talked to Tremic. Operation Normal-

I've checked on other forum's and found the same complaint. Not sure on the 600, but definitely get some feedback on this. Just an FYI.

Rob

I also went with a Tko 500 because my synchro went bad in my 2nd gear on the t45. I wouldnt even waste my time or money having that tranny rebuilt. Ive had the tko for about two years and it has taken a lot of abuse at the track. It is a bit noisey in 5th gear on the highway like the guy said above but its normal. The only complaint i have with this tranny is that my reverse grinds sometimes.

Erik, I do not want a T56.

I will be doing some more research as far as this goes.
