Got my transmission fixed under warranty
Well, I got my car back today with new synchro's and a new clutch.

(Pre-Post about what was wrong) https://www.celicahobby.com/ubbthreads/thread.f_1870245472_0_collapsed_5__1.html

The clutch feels really soft, and the gearbox feels like butter now. I also got some new tires installed, the Yokohama AVS ES100's, so now I have a full set. What was cool is that warranty covered a $4000 job and I paid $383 for a new clutch. I bought my car used so I never got to test out a brand new clutch. It feels pretty sweet. But yeah I'm pretty happy about how it turned out.

my transmission went out at 55k coz I drove it hard, always double shifting . . . the synchro mesh went out and they opened up it and ended up rebuilding the whole thing

2k worth of parts and labor . . . allllll covered by warranty, I'm so lucky


had a free loaner for a month coz they had to get some parts from the factory in Japan

Can you describe the noises the tranny makes when the synchro's are going bad?

Everything seems to work ok with mine, but lately the gear box seems really loud and what I can only describe as mechanical sounding. Like I can really hear all the gears meshing and groaning.

yeah, whenever I shift to 2nd from the top of 1st (redline) or if I downshift from 3rd gear to 2nd gear, it makes this "gkrrrrr" sound for like a second. I have a video that Clos sent to me and it sounds exactly like that. I would post it here but I don't know how
