Question in 3rd gear...

Hi all, just wondering if any of you all are experiencing this.

Whenever I shift into third, regardless of rpm I can feel the engine torque thru the shifter. Keeping my hand on the shifter and then pressing and letting up on the gas pedal you can feel the shifter move around a little bit. I am tending to think its normal since it is all connected. It doesnt constantly move around just might jar in one direction depending if i'm accelerating or deccelrating.

Yep, its just the motor flexing the tranny on its mounts, it even happens on my Camaro. It's normal.

Ditto!! my car does it also, nothing to worry about until it pops out of 3rd gear without you pulling on it.

You can get rid of almost of this with Goofy Guy's torque brace. I finally put mine on my car and I could not believe how smooth the shifts were. Since everything remains still, its like your shifting through the gears while not moving. (Oh and you can light your tires up nicely as well)

I noticed the "pulsing" third gear thing as well. It did have me kind of worried, but now i'm glad i know it's normal.
