Default Any shops in the NY area that can perform a 4eat to 6MT sti swap??

Just wonder if any shops have done this yet. I know it isn't easy but possible since several have gone through this route already.

Thanks,
Alan

I don't know how far you want the travel but there is a shop up in MA that could probably do this with their eyes closed.

I don't think they are that well known on NASIOC but they are pretty popular with the old school GC8 guys. Some of the projects on the website make me cream my pants. There is a good deal of re-wiring when swapping from AT to MT and these guys have definetly done it before.

Thanks guys. I'm in Brooklyn so the closer the better but i'm willing to travel a bit for a better shop. I rather not be the guinea pig so I prefer a shop that's done it before.

Also for those who've done it. Any tips on what I need to change for sure?

From my understanding if i pick up an 06 Sti 6spd, i don't have to change my driveshaft or the rear diff (basically not touching the rear end) since my 05 4eat 92x (wrx wagon) uses the same parts.

Not something I'd suggest doing but do the research beforehand. I'd say you need at least a rear diffy I don't think the AT rear is the same ratio as the 6MT.

Also maybe check with some places that have done the SVX->MT swap as that's fairly popular and well documented.
