Just installed the boss intake but when I shift at high rpm it doesn't want to shift into gears. Does anyone have this problem?

Need a Barton bracket or some sort of aftermarket shifter. I don't have a boss mani but I had this issue stock. Also my clutch peddle sucks to the flow at high rpms. Took out the assist spring, changed the fluid to dot 4, and bought/installed a Barton shifter. Clutch feel still kind of sux but it was a drastic improvement over stock.

The biggest problem with the MT82 trans is not the throw, its the deflection of the rubber bracket behind the shifter and during high rpm it twists the entire shift housing causing missed shifts

Agree fully. But a short throw will fix that issue (from what I've heard) plus who doesn't like shorter throws?

Never had that issue with mine but I would still like to install a short throw in the near future.
