MTX swap in central florida

Does anyone know of a place that will perform an ATX to MTX swap here in Central Florida?

I contacted CFM (Central Florida Motorsports). They wanted to purchase all new parts for the swap and guesstimated labor and parts to be $5,000. Having read the forums on this, installed the parts and labor should only be $2,000.

Has anyone done this in the Orlando area and/or know of a place who has or can do this?

are you sure you want a shop to do this? your going to need the tranny and a new wiring harness and an ecu reflash if not a totally new ecu. plus, if the tranny doesnt come with the clutch etc, then that adds on top of that. i could see parts being somewhere in the 2k range, but labor is going to be more. maybe someone will know, try posting this in the zetec section.

There are shops in Maryland and West Virginia on these boards quoting $2000 installed. I would just like to know if there is a shop in Orlando metro that will do the swap or has done the swap, without quoting me prices for brand-new everything.
