Does that include needing all the gears in the tranny? I might need to replace them anyway once I start racing more often.
its actually the select shafts (3 of them) inside the transaxle itself which give you the (shift gate) feel your talking about.
I'm not positive if you can swap those out without tearing down the entire transalxe and removing all the gears. I think we tried it once when installing my lsd to try to diss assemble the trans, and ended up stopping because we needed a puller set to pull the gears off the input/outputshafts inorder to get the select shafts out.
it would be much easier if you could find a spare tranny 00and then build it(i. e. cone final drive and outputshaft, and new syncros) then install the spare and sell off the one currently in your car to recover the cost, you could most likely sell your used tranny if it was in good condition for about 1-1500
