Time for some maintenance

Sounds like its just time for some maintenance. Investigate what is loose at your headliight, tighten it or replace it. Syncro's in tranny are wore out. I have a 90 Si that grinds going from second into 3rd. Valves need adjusting. If they are adjusted properly you won't hear them.

^ well there's most of your answers right there, as for tune up parts i use NGK, NGK wires, and NGK iridium X plugs, stay away from bosch plugs they ran like crap in mine, go ahead and change out the air filter or clean it if you have one you can do that with and it might help your gas milage out a little bit but if you're running it hard enough to "powershift" everytime you take off from a light then you're not going to get that great of gas milage

Check out the resource guide:
Official 3rd gen Resource Thread


You may want to change your transmission fluid and perhaps add 1/3 of a bottle of lucas oil; it'll slow down your "grinding." I read syncromesh stops gear grinding...look that up.
