Guys remember to completely warm up your transmission before you start shifting at high rpm!

DO NOT JUST TURN IT A TON.

Turn it 1 full rotation or so at a time, and test where it grabs after you turn it. Get it grabbing where you want, and then tighten the nut back up.

If the rod isn't turning, try pressing or pulling up the pedal while turning, as that can bind the rod.

Didnt work... I grinded 3 out of 7 WOT runs. Maybe I messed up. I turned the rod toward the left and then locked the nut back hand tight. You think when I was turning the bolt back it pushed the rod? I want this to work SOOO bad!!!! Im gonna try again.

Update: I tried it again and now its REALLY hard to get it into second. The one time I could it grinded. I think I turned it the wrong way because the pressure point is at the floor now, did I turn it the wrong way?

I turned it the right way and now it still grinds, but it goes into second now. Before, it would just deny me to get into second, now it goes in but still grinds. I think if I can turn it a little more, it will stop grinding... It just wont budge though.

its not very easy to turn but make sure you do at least a half turn radius at a time and test your clutch engagement point. when there is very little pedal play from the top, test out a quick 1-2 shift. i believe this has already been said earlier

Alright thanks for the help. If this DIY works I would be so happy! I shall try this tomorrow, my car is already cooling down in the garage. If it wasnt such a weird angle, it would be so much easier....
