Exactly what mine is doing except I try not to force it through the grind, I just go to 3rd. Good find!

And another... I shift between 2500 and 3000 and it still does it. That sound makes me cringe!

If you do hear from Tremec Nate, he'll blame it on the driver. .5% defect rate and he'll bet you $100 on that.

See the thing is this. Tremec is in this business to make money. Let's look at it this way. Let's say I go to good old Wally mart. I buy myself a nice pretty bike. Im out riding around having a good time and all of a sudden the right peddle snaps off. I'm faced with two options, either go to the store buy a new peddle and fix it myself or I take the bike back to Wally mart and get a new one. Most of us will take it back. I have my new bike and once again the right peddle snaps off again. As I'm walking (pissed at this point) back to Wally mart i notice snapped peddles scattered on the street. This is were the bike company makes money. For every one bike that is returned for a faulty peddle Wally mart has to buy a new one, and is stuck either with a bunch of broken bikes or sells them refurbished at a discount by buying the peddle that only that bike company makes. Either way the bike company (tremec) gets paid for every hunk of junk that goes out their door. So for some tremec lacky to post on a forum that we are not their customers is completely right...but we are the end users and we're the ones having to do all the leg work to get our cars fixed. I'm getting off my soap box now.

The cause of the problem: the stock clutch master cylinder simply doesn't flow enough fluid to push the clutch slave cylinder far enough to fully disengage the clutch. This produces extreme heat inside the bellhousing, boiling the fluid inside the hydraulic system (thus introducing air) and causing a faded (or totally dead) clutch pedal. Other side effects include difficulty shifting at high RPMs, difficulty engaging 1st and Reverse while stopped, shortened clutch life and shortened transmission life. We've been seeing this exact issue for years in many applications.via joey at tick performance..search the forum and give feedback.

Except that Walmart has an agreement with their suppliers to get back 100% of any returns.

Tremec will loose too much money if they adopted that type of agreement.
Not to mention that tremec will rather blame every one else instead of helping root the cause of the failures. What bugs me is if the transmission isn't the problem, then why is it that the problem spans other makes of cars? I have an M6 and I'm one of lucky ones that doesn't have a problem(shifts at any temp and any RPM). So why am I the lucky one? What makes my car so different from the other cars that have problems?

This may very well be true but many of us have not experienced grinding with the Tremec 6spd in the SS cars. Is it possible there are some "weak" stock clutch master cylinders AND real 2nd gear syncro issues ??? In my own case I never had a problem either all stock OR since installing a remote clutch reservoir, installing a quality DOT4 fluid in the brakes and clutch system, properly bleeding the clutch hydraulic system and swapping the trans fluid to Mobil 1 synthetic ATF.
