Rebuilt my shifter, still feels crappy

I just did the clutch and flywheel on my 325 and at the same time I ordered a kit from ECS with all the shifter bushings and clips.

Feels tighter but lousy. It is a UUC evo 2 which is basically just a stock shifter with a bend (ok and a few bearings) but I don't think that is the problem.

The big bushing at the end was really sloppy but it almost seems the new one is too tight, no play at all.

Will it break in? Any ideas appreciated

I had an Evo3. I thought it was a truly terrible shifter. It kept falling apart. Granted this was on a race car with solid mounts so it vibrated a bunch, but I loctited every fastener and the damned thing still would not stay together. The engineering is just too complicated. And to be honest, it didn't shift well either.

You're going to hate this, but I think stock is really the best option.

Sell what you have, buy what I have; You'll want to send me a case of beer when you experience it.

I run the Rogue Octane with WSR, it feels SO incredible............I could go on and on about this Rogue shifter, it really is amassing. If you get one with the WSR & don't like it,.........I'll send you a case of beer.

Good luck,

I am still wondering if there is something wrong with the stock bushing at the front. It feels so notchy.

I will change the tranny oil again, its been a couple of years.

I have tries the redline, it felt better but the a couple of years later I changed it for BMW oil and it felt better again, I think all he tranny oils just get old and a change improves things, no matter what you put.
