Cool 2000 Boxster S Transmission 2nd gear issue

Thanks for taking the time to read this and give advice. I have a 2000 Boxster S 6 speed that has a problem with the transmission 2nd gear. The car will go into 2nd gear once out of three times and I would like to get as much information as possible. The car had an IMS bearing explosion and I replaced the engine, but not the transmission. Basically, i am having fun trying to get this car back and trying to do it on a budget.

I have replaced the gear shift cables, both of them, Pulled the transmission and did not see any apparent synchros/gear/transmission issues, also the motor mount was inspected and it is in new shape. While the transmission was out I also installed the GBOX Detent. The GBOX Detent did not make a difference.

I have attached some pictures of the transmission gears to see if anyone can see something that we missed. Is it the gear shifting arm? Some sort of adjustment?
I do not know the level of expertise on here, but take a look at the photos and
see if you can detect anything or if you have any suggestions on actions.

What you are experiencing is standard with the 6-speed. I recommend you call California Motorsports & see what they recommend. I installed their billet shift arrestor & it helps a lot.

As your clutch gets close to wearing out it will get worse.

Jerk that is constantly criticzing new forum members and overly advertising my rebuilt engine for sale for a highly inflating price along with other miscellaneous parts accumulated over my 20 years of ownership.
