After reading all the horror stories on the smt trans does anyone know of a shop in florida that will convert the trans to a 5 speed with a clutch and the approx cost? Just bought an 02 with 53000 miles and all is well with the smt at this point but want a back up plan in case I have problems with the trans in the future.

My SMT has 72000 miles and runs great. You only hear about those having problems...not the many that are running strong.

It took me 118K to start having problems and those issues are easily DIY fixable for anyone with the time and resources.

If you can afford it you could swap in a 6-speed, plenty of info available with a search on that so I won't go too into detail but there are plenty of benefits.

I would suggest that you sell the SMT, and find a clean MT. Paying for this conversion would be very expensive. On the other hand, as someone already stated, you may never have an issue with this SMT.
