Ok for all you cats, who broke third already, did you get another tranny, or swap out third gear? I drove the car home after I broke third, then I drove it to the shop about 15 mins away from my house. I'm curious if I could have caused some damage. TIA

It's not the syncros, it is the actual gear, the gear shreded to pieces as soon as I hit third. I know what the problem is I don't need someone assuming a diognosis. My question was directed to the fellow turbo guys who have broke third. Just trying to figure out the cheapest way to go with out getting burned. I'm most likely going to get a Non LSD tranny and swap out internals.

you don't need a new gear set or new tranny. its just the synchro that went out, have that replaced, and it will be just fine. its expensive because they have to take the tranny out. but its still cheaper than new gears or new tranny.

The only problem with buying a used tranny is it's like russian roulett, you never know what your gonna get. I wish queife didn't give up on their gear sets for the se-r I'm sure they would have been well worth the 3gs paid for them.

Mike, I think he was replying to jingjing. My reply was directed at those with 5th gear pop out.

In my experience, get a junkyard tranny and bolt it on to your car for the cheapest way to fix. Inspect the 5th gear syncro prior to install and give it a good cleaning, then use Redline Shockproof for the gear oil.

Good luck.
