I just put Pennzoil Synchromesh in mine over the weekend and the difference is night and day. Shifts are incredibly easy and there is no notchiness now. It took 30 minutes, and the stuff is only $6.99 a quart at AutoZone. The S2000 camp and RSX camp love the stuff and so far I'm completely sold on it and will use it in the future again.

I doubt you'll see any ill-effects from changing it right now BTW. As far as preventing it goes, it's a design flaw in the transmissions so there's really no preventing issues like 3rd gear pop-out from happening. Gear grinding shouldn't really happen, though, so that would be more of a defect/warranty repair type of deal.
