    depending on what needs replaced parts from the dealer will cost you way over 750 and thats just parts alone.. You can check out ebay i've seen kits on there pretty cheap. but they might be cheap parts too.. There are a few other sites that have rebuilds for them, let me check with my brother since he has been through it..

    the issue my trans is having is it will not downshift into second from third or any higher gear in that matter but goes into second from first just fine

    Do you know if it's RPM/speed dependent?

    I suggest Synchrotech because they're very well regarded in the racing scene. I actually used their kit on my DOHC ZC transmission; full carbon-lined synchros ;) and also included new bearings, seals, and synchro springs.
