Did you change the rubber bushings for the solid metal ones? Im tempted to put mine back on but leave the rubber bushing in this time.Flashy nice one mate , all on now I prefer it over oem although a short drive I've found it to be alot less notcy throws are so precise
I know everyone complains about the filing but in all honesty yes it's a tideous time consuming task but not the most difficult.
The hardest part I find is lining up all the panels to get it all back on , only to find flimsy clips and clip cover break ! Lol
Mine isn't that bad at all, I out my short shifter back on and it is better than I remember and better than stock, I'll be leaving it on this time. Mine seems to be smoother when cold, weird.I had the shifter bushing before yeah their good but a marginal improvement. OEM honda bushes don't deteriorate as they would have you believe.
I've removed some before on a car with nearly 90k and they near perfect. I reckon if you do suspect a synchro issue a gearbox fluid other than honda fluid might be better
