The Cheapest Trans I found is 600. Dont You think its cheaper to just replace the 1-2 Synchronizer?

^^^ lol no. look at the link i just posted. they send you a completely rebuilt (warrantied) transmission for $800. You have to send your old tranny to them though.

i will bet you my car that thats not going to be the only thing. you will also need a 3rd gear synchro. i just rebuilt my tranny that was grinding 3rd gear for $3,000 after all the parts and labor. (upgraded internals, stg 2 clutch, pro 5.0, name brand TOB). By the time u factor in parts and labor you'll be close to the $800 if not more for a tranny with only a 1,2,3 synchro rebuild. shits about to start falling apart. do it all or don't do it at all.

It still won't be as much as buying a new one tho because i dont have to pay for them to take it out my car and put it back in.

okay nvm then dude. i promise you it is not going to be your 2nd gear synchro only. unless your a transmission builder i wouldnt recommend doing it yourself. the link above is your best bet. its basically a brand new transmission for $800 with a warranty. They ship you a transmission, you install it and ship your busted ass transmission back to them so they can rebuild it and sell it to someone else.

I'll Consider it. I Just finished a Automatic Transmission class. All I was gunna do was take it out, take it to the Transmission shop and get it fixed then put it back in.

You just finished a transmission course and you came here asking why 2nd gear wouldn't work..
