Newtothegame (Josh) [Who is in california for military training. So, he can't comment at this time.] Was supposed to get Albins originally, but his tune shop screwed up and bought PPGs instead. Long story...but, he was told before that transmission upgrade that the Albins were on a WRX that did nothing but drag and was heavily modded. That was the story that his tune shop told him that Albins would be a good durable choice....but instead he got the PPGs. Funny what happens during a deployment and a shop that just likes to fool around with a soldiers money. Josh is happy either way though.

Like Kirt mentioned Albins was on the top of my list after heavy reading and discussions. Would have loved to have had them. But the PPGs are holding well. Sandra I really hope that things get resolved and quickly. I thought it was great having 3 members with 3 different types of gear upgrades. I feel so bad that of us yours are not working out for you.

Don't feel bad nothing you did unless you came over to my house and poured blinker fluid in my trans A slight update, I have scheduled another trip to AndrewTech next week for them to look over the car. According to them, PAR has shipped another 3rd gear so it will be waiting for me to get there. Just odd because when I shift from 3rd to 4th there is a grind. If I downshift from 5th to 4th or 4th to 3rd, no grind whatsoever. At least PAR is stepping up to the plate even though they already warrantied the shaft that snapped. I am sure it's a syncro issue of some sort.

I'm no tranny specialist although I have rebuilt a few. But almost makes sense that the tooth wear is one sided if that makes sense...like this

smooth from- A/B
rough from- B\A

catches one way but slides over the other..This make sense???

That does make sense! Just odd that I reported the grind issue weeks before the shaft snapped. AndrewTech assured me they checked all gearing over and did not see anything relevant or odd. Maybe this time they will?

Update: After a few heated e-mails, phone calls, some text messages, PAR has sent new gearing and parts. With the trans dissected, AndrewTech made a diagnosis that due to the off slide pin (it had some imperfections and was not lining up correctly), I was actually hitting 2nd gear synchro and that is the probable cause for the grind I was experiencing. All new parts are in, and they have assured me the issue is fixed, and the trans shifts like butter. I am picking it up later this week so will report back.

Unfortunately, I never spoke with PAR directly. So, can't comment on them actually fessing up. I only know what AndrewTech has told me, and they were the ones who pointed out the issue(s) as they had the physical evidence in front of them (the 2nd gear synchro wear, how the 3-4 shift pulled towards 2nd, etc.). At the end of the day the issue was not something I did, me being a woman driver, or any of my other mods, yadda yadda.

Picked the Rex up last weekend and WOW! What a difference! The car shifts super smooth, and no more grind! The true test will be when I get to run on Thunderbolt @ NJMP.

BIG THANKS to AndrewTech and PAR for sending the parts. Now my dreams of putting down 650bhp are back on track !Laugh!

Just bring your boy toy....or John will be your wife if you ask him nicely. FOL But, seriously...John is going single or with a friend. It'd be interesting to hear all 3 different gear sets in person.

You probably wont be able to hear Johns (with all he has going on under the hood and with his exhaust), and I know you cant hear mine really over my Blitz CBE now (sorry about that), but maybe you can hear Sandra's lol.
