    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
    *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... Any advice would be great, thanks....
