Is ok sometimes we overlook things. In that sense and remembering what I did when I was setting the shifter stops now I remember that I didn't back off the bolt after it touched the shifter shaft. instead I back it off a bit then inserted a 0.010" filler gauge and then tighten the jam nut. Actually I followed this video instruction from LMR/Steeda which makes a lot of sense to me.I completely missed him saying back it off. Think I was more focused on the video than what he was saying. Both my Pro5.0's touch on every shift. I beat the snot out of my T5 and knock on wood have never lost a gear. I will say if the transmission was whining in 2nd gear and was getting louder before it broke someone should have been smart enough to know to quit driving it.
Yeah I know what you're saying my friend should have stop driving it but he didn't pay much attention to that warning.
Thank you for your ideas/suggestions
