3rd Gear Syncros going out.
Im in a bit of a panic here and am in need of some advice. My 3rd gear syncros are on their way out in my 2012 GT
. Whether I shift quickly or slowly with the clutch pressed all the way to the floor it grinds it's way into gear 50% of the time.
I'm sure I am partly at fault for this since I installed the Boss intake Manifold and tuned the car which set the rev limiter at 7800rpm. The problem with this is that the car will not shift into any gear over 7200rpm because the stock clutch and pressure plate cant handle it. As a result of this any time I'm not watching my RPMs closely and I try to shift past 7200rpm the gears grind. After I discovered this issue it has only happened a handful of times when I am not watching the RPMs closely. But apparently that is enough to effect this pos transmission.
My question for you all is this. How had the dealership treated you when it comes to getting warranty work done on your car when you have aftermarket parts installed? This will be the first time I've taken it in for anything other than an oil change.
I currently have a Hurst short throw shifter and Barton 2 post bracket that I will be removing before taking the car in since I know they will try to tell me that the shifter and bracket are inferior to the factory ones and have caused the issue. But as far as the boss intake manifold goes. I would really like to leave it on since it's a process to reinstall the old one and re tune back to stock. From your experiences should I just restore everything back to stock? Or will I be alright leaving the parts that don't directly effect the transmission on my car? I really need this to be repaired under warranty.
