Anyone around the gulfport area know a good shop to do a manual transmission swap in my auto ses. I know not worth it but it's my only option for the build

If you couldn't find a manual SES to begin with, you won't find a manual ST either.

Why, might I ask, are you swapping to a manual? And why is it your "only option?"

I originally wanted to keep it auto but after speaking with lentech about their upgraded valve body and what not to upgrade the auto. They informed me that the parts I need are not obsolete and unavailable. I'm planning on doing a built motor with turbo with the goal of as close to 400 hp as possible. With no upgrades for the auto available now besides a tune which still wouldn't support that amount of power. Seems manual swap is my only option now. Will make heavy traffic days fun.

The car was originally for my wife but I took it over when she talked me into getting her a new maxima. Hence the auto trans. I'm sure I could have found a manual but she wanted auto.

I've thought about it but I've already got a lot tied up in the car. Wheels, body kit ,paint , and a few other small items. Gotten a bit attached to the car honestly. I'm in it everyday for hrs at a time can't sell it anytime soon not that I want too. I'm sure y'all can understand the attachment. I'm just having trouble finding a shop or anyone to help with the swap in the gulfport ms area. The last 3 hung up on me as soon as I inquired.
