may be worth it to save up and buy a manual tranny car.
I was thinking about doing a tranny sawap along with motor swap, but the subaru 4eat is stronger than the 5MT, so i abandoned teh tranny swap and will buy a car with a MT eventually.

He could get a mustache ride too, but that's not the point.

It's much more enjoyable to drive a 5spd, and that's how he wants his car to be. As for a place to do the install, I'd contact AZP Installs.

not everyone needs a tranny to handle 300hp....

if I was closer and it was warmer I could help you with the swap, but I don't know anyone in that area to help you
