Hey, since we've covered most of the basis when it comes to a M5R2 swap, would this thread make a good sticky for the next guy?

Well ive come to the conclusion that the 1st and 2nd gear synchros are out. 3rd 4th and 5th are perfect. 1st and 2nd you cannot downshift into while the car is moving. It has to be completly stopped. I can take off in both gears but I cant upshift into second when the car is moving. I go from 1st right to 3rd, which its geared so close and with the 3.27's I can do that.

Even with shot synchros, you should be able to shift from 1st to 2nd, it will just grind a little. If you can't shift into 2nd at all when moving, then you might have a bigger problem.

Have you tried double clutching? My TR3650 gives some resistance on a second to first downshift at speed, I double clutch and rev match though it's smooth as butter.

I'm thinking on trying to order a trans from work how it seems I can get a rebuilt one for bout the same price as getting this one rebuilt. Does anyone know the part numbers and/or serial number I need to look for to get a 94/95 M5R2 to get the better gearing? Thanks guys.
