rough shifting
I just got my car back from getting a SPEC stage II kevlar clutch and a Fidanza flywheel installed. I love the setup but now I notice my shifter isn't as smooth as it was before. There is no grinding whatsoever in the gearbox but the feel of the shifter now is rough. Is there any way to adjust this?

try greasing up your shift linkage.

The only thing that confuses me is that it felt just fine before I got the new clutch and flywheel. I know the guy who did the work and he is very good. Not that it really sucks to drive the car, just a little annoying. But wow, I punched it when I was already in first and it actually put me back in the seat. I can't wait until my clutch is broken in.

I use Mobil 1 and I only have about 10,000 miles on it since I've changed it. I did notice an improvement in shifting quality after the change, but what I am experiencing now is a little different.
