Are you sure that the oil you put in the tranny is the correct viscosity? I'm not flaming you, just offering suggestions, so don't take this the wrong way. I don't know if you changed the fluid or not. Did you have synthetic fluid in your tranny before the clutch swap? The 2nd gear synchro could be shot, I would put synthetic fluid in and see if it helps.

change the fluid to a good synthetic ATF like mobil 1 or amsoil and your problem should go away... a fluid change should use just under 3 qts

Yea...change that oil..It should have been done at the clutch change. I used Royal Purple ATF, and love it. It made the trans slightly louder, but it's all good.
