150xxx miles on mine... just wondering if it would be something I should also replace when replacing the engine / getting alot more power out of mine. 150xxx miles when I plan on pushing a decent amount of power sounds like it could be bad...

I really believe in limits to our tranny equal that of our horsepower.

But for piece of mind, and the fact that it will be much easier to do with the engine out, I say go for it.

New clutch and flywheel too if it's time.

use/abuse is all of it..plus if you maintain it by looking for problems early on and fixing them before they become too bad

Is it possible to spruce up my r154 in my garage? Like change the syncros, bearings, & seals? Mine isnt shot it still goes quite good but the syncros in 2nd are on their way out and 3rd might be next?

I abuse my tranny often, I have some minor mods, but not too dramatic increase of power :p My tranny is still kickin at 216,000 miles. All I have replaced is the clutch and flywheel. They're quite stout and well prepared to take some abuse.

What does a bad syncro feel like...what symptoms? I have an R154 and *think* my 3rd is going.

a grinding sound/feel when you put it in gear...gradually getting worse over time until they totally crap out and you cant get the car in gear...my 2nd and 3rd are about shot...but im going to wait till it talkes a shit before i rebuild
