My '86 SVO doesn't grind when I do the same. You mentioned the new
carbon fiber synchros, but I know that the blocking ring on the 5th
gear synchro is made of brass (anyway, it's all metal). Is it possible
that it wasn't replaced?
Also, I am using Redline ATF, without any 'friction modifier', in my T5.
It's been working fine, but I don't shift too hard.
