    Transmission question

    So I broke my trans today while running touge. Lucky for me, I still have my totaled 2003 P5 with a perfectly good (and better maintained over the years) gearbox in it, so I’m gonna just swap that one into my ‘02. Now, I recall reading somewhere there were revisions to the trans for the 03 model year, something about improved synchros. Is this correct?

    I*ve also noted my 2003 trans as smoother shifting and no grind for second or third gear except by occasional user error. Either way, that*s what*s going on my *02, cause it*s what I can afford to do. Stronger forks will be nice since I*m pretty sure I broke one in the 02
