    Tennessee Mechanics??

    I just moved to Memphis and I need a mechanic!

    I have a 2002 Subaru WRX and my first gear grinds when I put it in gear while rolling...

    I've considered upgrading to a newer car, but this thing is just too much fun on and off road.

    Sooo I want to get stronger gears (or an STI tranny if I can find one for a good deal), a performance clutch and lightweight flywheel... and if anyone semi-close has a shop with an AWD dyno and experience with tuning Subarus. I want to get this thing to ~350hp or whatever is a reasonable horsepower that will keep this thing running for at least a year. I've got the money if they have the experience and can get this done quickly so I don't have to throw away too much money on a rental while it's in the shop as it's my daily driver.

    your not supposed to put the car in first while your rolling so even if you get a sti tranny its still going to do that. now dont get me wrong sti tranny is definitely better but for that specific reason that your talking about is going to be the same in any car

    Grind putting it in first... even around 5mph? I disagree. I've had 3 cars all of which were manual that never grinded like this.

    Regardless I'm looking for a mechanic! 220hp just isn't doing it for me anymore, I considered buying a Porsche Carrera 4 in place... I feel investing in the Subaru is a better idea.
