Ironically, the 2 best shifting gears in my BOSS are 5th and third.
When I brought my car back out after winter shutdown I added the XL-18 additive which wasn't put in my tranny at the factory. It made the trans
shift even smoother than before. My trans
is super quiet for a manual as well, no gear noise, no whine.
I did however buy my car, drove it 150 miles home, then order a MGW shifter the next day. I've installed a whiteline urethane trans
mount bushing as well. I have no complaints about my trans
it will shift at redline with no issue. I will admit I drove the car REAL EASY up to 5K miles to allow it to break in. My feeling was the trans
felt real tight from day 1, so a careful, easy, break in would be my best course of action to burnish all the hardened surfaces. So far my course of action seems to be paying off.
