I got my header installed last week,and ever since then, probably due to the ability to rev harder now, I grind when shifting from first to second and second to third, if I give the engine a chance to rev down and shift gently no problems, its a little rough but its not insane. Any ideas? Do I need a new trannie?

Hey man, I have a 94 scoupe with a 5 speed in it. It grinded the same way yours does since the day I bought it. It did this for at least two years with no other problems. I even went to Road Atlanta and ground each gear about 5 times a lap for about 90 laps. Never had a problem. I finally got the trans rebuilt and got the centerforce clutch. After about 6 months and a few autocross events the grinding was back again. O well.

Mine Accent has done the same thing ever since i've had it i've found however that if you turn your radio up really loud you can't hear it, and if you can't hear it it ain't broke <img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle>, seriously though i know i should get it checked out but i just don't have the time or money <img src=icon_smile_dead.gif border=0 align=middle>

lol, well I drove again to work, but didden't redline every time, and it doesn't do it, probably not the greatest idea, the header makes the car rev faster, but shifting still sucks if I really race it, need a different transmission.

I know afew friends with accents who had that problem. Their clutch and whatnot got old and as yours gets older you grind more often.

One of them cut the shift knob down. You know where the ball is? They cut iut just below that, slapped on a custom knob and the problem went away.

Don't know if its your solution, just a thought. It also acts as a "do it yourself" short shifter, you shift quicker into 1st, 3rd, and 5th. Not sure why, its some technical theory thing. Just works :)

hence the name short shifter...its a shorter throw so technically you will be able to move faster between gears due to less travel time.

if you've ever driven a gsr the throw is damn near nothing, its phat

It's probably your synchros Kaotik. When you're engine is revving higher, it causes your driveshaft to spin faster, which in turn makes it harder for a worn-out synchro in a low gear to "grab" the driveshaft and control it.

How many miles did you say are on your car?

P.S. Rudy, you should drive a GSR or Si with a short shifter <img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle>.
