Help from SoCal V6 member NEEDED!!

Hey guys and gals,
There is a company who has created a fix for the grinding of the FRS transmission. Apparently that is the same transmission as our beloved V6. The company has a rep in the forum and is asking for a test car in SoCal so they can see if they can help us out and fix our transmission.
Anyone can help????? Please
Here's the link to the thread

Correction. The FRS/BRZ doesn't have grinds. I've just found a way to make it shift crisp and smooth. Pretty much how it should of came from the factory

I'm unable to see what is being requested: Does somebody want a car with a trans that is working fine, or one experiencing the problem? Is the trans going to be torn down/ rebuilt, or is it just a visual spot check? What area is this (I see a reference to "626..." Does this mean San Gabriel Valley)? Does the v6 owner need to travel to the shop? How long might it take? And... what's the compensation?

no rebuild, it is a modification of 2 springs to see if it makes the transmission more crisp shifting. Compensation, probably get the springs... what more do you want, that would be great.

Michael from MTEC probably can add more, but that's basically what it is for.

The trans will not be dissembled. It will just need to be looked over and see if there is something I can create for the vehicle. Many people are having issues with the Aisin transmission and I was contacted to see if I can produce something that will help eliminate the problem. I would just need the car about 2 times compensation will be free products for testing. You are also helping out the camaro5 community.

Hey guys, I was the one who volunteered the car. I never really felt like the car had a problem shifting, besides 1st to 2nd wasn't always super smooth. This is the only stick shift I've ever driven so when I read this I thought that feeling from first to second was the problem. Michael drove the car and said there wasn't really a problem and that if he can make a part it would be a $30-$40 part, but you would most likely need to drop the whole tranny and it wouldn't really make sense.
