Agreed, same as T5 - Best course of action would be to have a trans shop dive into it - Or better yet upgrade the internals... There's one shop in the jersey area I can recommend that specializes in t5s/45s that I could recommend if you'd like...
HOWEVER, for what its worth I drove my 92 for 3 years - which was a T5 and weaker than t45 with a screwed up third gear synchro.. This included quite a few trips to the track..
Synchro for 2nd in my 2001 GT (also T45) has been shot since I got it almost a year ago
Some day when driving around try pushing the clutch all the way in/gently pushing shifter up to third (briskly, but not fast or hard) from second..
Mine only grinded when shifting quick or if clutch weren't FULLY disengaged
