in your profile it says you have a evo 8 rs 2004 model. They never made a 6spd RS model and I dont know why you would swap a 6spd into a rs. Is this a 05 evo MR by chance? from 03-06 the models that had 6spds were the MR.

well the previous owner is an idiot. everyone i know that has a 6spd ditchs it for a 5spd once they start really tracking it or making power. start small cables, mounts. Noone i know rebuilds the 6spd though not even sheptrans. So it may be time to start looking into a built 5spd. Let us know what the real issue is once its resolved

Ok i'm back..probrem is done..guess what.the fix its called a 5 speed tranny..so no more 6 speed..and in top off that i think i know what was the problem with the 6 gearr issue. ok i got a frien in ocala FL and he went to a huge salvage yard in gainsville fl. there was the tranny so i drive my wife truck(durango) to fl and get while i was there i ask my friend if he got an advice or a comment in regards the 6 gear issue and he told me that his son got an evo 8 mr that happend the same thing and he went to hell looking the issue, finally was fix by replacing the 2 cables and putting the brass bushing..so that was for the gear thingy but know i got it 5 speed and running good..tomorrow morning my plans are installing a HKS SSQV bov so hopefully i don't got any issues ..thanks all of you for your comments and advice is really apriciated..

Ohh i forgot, the previous owner of the car was a US Navy salor and i belive that he is one of those that you tell him put this and the car will run faster and he will do it. so i think that was one of his deals putting a 6 speed on an RS..again tnks all of you..

Im sorry, but I hardly understood your post. I "think" youre trying to tell us that you have a 5-speed tranny now.

so now you have a 5spd tranny? wouldnt it have been easier to replace the cables and bushings? Also why the HKS SSQV? are you going to VTA and get tuned on a stand alone?

Or get the IX BOV. Doesn't leak if you're running 25-26psi.
