Hello, as the title says, my s20 grinds the second gear and also has that 'whistle' in all gears. Oil has been changed in april with Amsoil Synchromesh 5w30 but since then it's been abused badly: touge runs, overtaking traffic in third at 6k rpm, 190 km/h on the interstate (d15b2 top speed
) and is also a daily. A friend offered me another s20 but it pops out of reverse. So my question is: should I search for another good trans? I was thinking to take that one and just swap the reverse gear from my dead transmission. Is it a good idea? A friend will help me, not planning to take it to a shop and pay more than the car is worth.
Oh and I will use honda trans fluid in the new gearbox, maybe the amsoil was too thin and that messed up my bearings and synchros whatever.
