    just put in an exeddy stage 2 clutch about 2 weeks ago. did this becuase the stock clutch had a chip in one of the springs and it was causing really hard shifting.. now the shifting is smooth as butter in every gear except when i downshift into 1st. i know you're not supposed to be able to downshift to 1st without rev matching becuase it's not syncro'd but i'm talkin about at like 5-10 mph it grinds. my friends got a 97 civic ex and he can throw it in at 20? i'm thinkin this could maybe just be a characteristic of a performance clutch? also when i turn my car off it whisles pretty loud out of the intake like 5 seconds after i turn it off. it made the sound pretty loud even before i put on the shortram. any ideas? also makes the same whistling throughout the entire rpm range if givin too much or not enough gas. seems that there is no power trouble though. thanks!
