1. his is not even close to stock...
2. true they could have sucked
3. As per MT 82. Mine is notchy in the cold but i just double clutch for the first few minutes and it goes away.
4. I had my 3rd gear syncro replaced... Originally from day one WOT runs at the track and on the street I would be locked out of third. Like deflected. Or hit the gate. After I got the syncro replaced I have hit every third gear shift and missed it for the first time today by accident.
IMO they are solid trannys with little hic ups but most cars have something to complain about. Some early model year 2-11s had bolts backing out but as far as I know none of the newer ones have had that issue

My third day out on a road course the tranny kept locking me out of third. It was really annoying. It doesn't happen around town ever, only when at high rpm

High RPM is actually when my transmission is the smoothest. My rough around town shifting was well cured with a new bracket and better transmission fluid. Then adding a Steeda TriAx only made the experience that much more enjoyable.

I have 7k on my MT82 and no problems. The skipshift is a pain in the ass though but you are likely used to it from the Vette.

Thanks for all the input guys. I bought it day before yesterday...nice car! Do I miss my C5, yes some things. Do I regret the decision...no. Always wanted a vette...got one...loved it, but it was just not my thing. Was 27 degrees last night when I got off of work, and the tranny shifted just as it did when it was 70 last weekend (welcome to VA). Some "notchiness" as I have heard some folks talk about, but in all honesty, I have never driven a manual that was not. Service records show nothing other than oil changes at 18k miles, so either I got lucky or my luck is soon to run out but that is true with most things. I dropped the car off today to be certified, so I will have 4 years/82k miles to get it fixed. Skip shift was already deactivated by the dealer for the previous owner.

Lots of guys have this love it or hate it relationship with their MT82 tranny it seems. Mine shift just fine tho, and I can even say as smooth as butter, but it can lock you out of 3rd and 5th during aggressive acceleration and hard cornering. I tried energy suspension bushings but it seemed to have went back to stock characteristic once it got broken in. I couldn't imagine how I would act if mine had some of the issues some peoples are going through with their MT82. Just hope that you don't become one of those guys and you should be good overall. MT82 is definitely noisy and stubborn lol.
