Welcome to the club :cool: . You pretty much have to either buy a new gear set (very expensive) or buy a used tranny (not quite as expensive).

I broke mine after 100K+ miles of "normal" wear and tear, 50K+ miles of turbo use at over 200 whp, and part of a season in the SE-R Cup Series.

Swapping out the syncro wont work for any length of time. I swapped out just the syncro on my G20 just before I drove from LA to Memphis, TN. The gear was so worn that it started popping out again after 3000 miles. If you want to do it on the cheap, flip 5th gear when you swap the syncro (I didn't becuase4 I couldn't get the gear off), otherwise you're pretty much assured of getting pop out again very shortly.

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.
