HAD it around 2500 miles on the clock.
GM replaced the trans saying it was faulty blocker rings(i think) sychros.1=2 shift only.
after new trans...no problems.

OEM Hurst, only happened twice, both times trans was cold and I was lazy shifting into second. No problems at high rpms. Shifter does feel notchy until trans oil heats up. Once it's warm no isues.

after market Hurst installed with 3,500 miles - no grid at 14,000 miles. Read the entire post to see what the deal was.

Try not to let in grind....this is what happens every time it grinds,a little more of the synchro ring get chewed off.

It should get better with more miles.I wouldn't do high RPM shifts anyway with only 50 miles on the clock.

30,000kms and definately 2 nd gear grinding at high rpms, both oem ss and aftermarket hurst. Found it more with the hurst. Talked to my dealer and he says its the synchros. yesterdsay though, I had it in second, slow speed shift and it was rattling like a bugger..shifter was dancing and eery noises...all other gears good. drove it home to BC today from Emonton and it was fine, except for the 2nd gear grind at high rpm fast shift. It is a bummer cause thats why i bought this shifter...will be calling dealer tomorrow.
