I have a 1999 911/996 that grinds going into 2nd gear, unless I double-de-clutch, and the clutch is high. I have had an independant garage look at it and they have said it needs a new syncromesh and forks (ouch!), but they and their transmission guy can't get the parts to fix it (do Porsche keep them for main dealerships only?). Their only solution they offered was a new transmission at around $17,000!!


Has anybody had similar problems and/or can recommend anywhere near me (McLean, VA) to take it for repair?

+1 for Dharn / Gbox.  Gbox rebuilt my gearbox, much cheaper than buying a new one.  I wouldn't consider having an independent garage fix it anyway, you need a specialist for this job.... I'm a bit surprised they even offered to do it.  Most of the guys I know that are the best mechanics would pass on that and tell you to send it to Gbox.  You can lose your shirt on a job like this if you don't know what you're doing, and not many people do.
