Stiff syncro's

Transmission

Vehicle Information: Year: 1979; Engine (Size, Modifications): 3.3 K-27 trubo; Total Mileage: 82k;

I just had new sycnro's installed in the transmission. I have a bit over 500 miles since the work was done and first gear is still very stiff, and feels like it has a bit of a catch before going into first. A quick double clutch works and there is no grinding of gears at any time. I have had the car for 2 years and it has always had weak syncro's and this is my first Porsche, so I don't have any previous porsche to compare it with. Should the tranny shift smoother at this point, and if so, what would I expect the cause to be? The linkage near the rear seat is in good shape and clean.Thanks
