Default JDM 6 speed gearbox rebuild experience?

I’ve been running a 6MT in my my00 for a long time now. The synchros need doing, but it also judders a lot when letting clutch out (unless you “drive it like you stole it” ). It has done this since I bought it second hand way, way back - I initially thought it was clutch or flywheel, but they have both been replaced since I fitted it and the issue persists.

Does anyone have experience of rebuilding the 6MT? I assume synchros are readily available, but what other parts should be changed if doing a rebuild (and are they likely to be root cause of the juddering)?

Many thanks, Richard

Synchros are normally a good start, getting the ones from later 6MT models brings things like carbon synchros - so as OEM parts they're readily available.

Haha - hi Wurzel, I was - I finally sold my car to a friend due to that light rod knock (he has since blown the motor ), and am now on the hunt for an Evo X
