    I've got a '95 awd Talon tsi. It is fairly hard to shift into gear when sitting still. It's also a little hard to pull out of gear when sitting still. And when I'm driving and shifting, it takes it a second to shift up or down all gears...........Could this be my gearbox?

    New parts:
    *New oem clutch kit, w/ 11.5 lb chromoly flywheel
    *reinforced clutch release fork from MachV Motorsports
    *pivot ball
    *Hurst short shifter
    *ss steel clutch line
    *new oem master & slave cylinders---------(bled and adjusted)
    *brass shifter cable bushings
    *nylon shifter plate bushings

    Note: It was hard to shift before all the new parts, I was hoping these parts would improve the shifting, but it has made no difference, except a shorter shift throw...Oh, and the car has 180k miles on it. Any advice would be great, thanks....

    Adjust your clutch properly.

    Check your clutch master and slave cylinders for leakage.

    New stuff, no leaks. I park on a very light gray driveway and have put 1000 miles on it since new stuff, and no evidence of leakage. The clutch was adjusted at install and was re-checked twice after a few hundred miles. No fluid level drop at the master. All fluids are new.

    the shifter cables might need to be adjusted at the shifter.
