Icon10 Shops in Alaska for 5speed swap?

Hey, total noob at posting sorry... I've been riding my 4th gen 93 automatic for about a year now, and now that my auto's crapping out I'm looking to do a 5speed swap. I already have a parts car (was hit by truck on passenger side but everything mechanical is intact) w/ 80,000 miles. Again, sorry if I'm not posting this in the right place (literally first post ever).

My question is: Does anyone know of any good shops in Alaska? Yeah, I know I'm like in the middle of nowhere but I thought I'd throw it out there. Preferably close to Anchorage or Wasilla. I did a google search and found one forum mentioning Underground Performance in Anchorage.

Not really sure what kind of shops will do this, what a good price would be, or what kind of shops I should let do this lol.

FYI I'm a college student working part-time as an aircraft mechanic. I would undertake the swap myself, but I've got no tools, no friends, no time.

Any and all help appreciated!

Re: Shops in Alaska for 5speed swap?

Ive never heard of a shop - even in a major lower 48 metropolitan area - that would undertake such a drastic modification. Buy tools, find the time, and DIY it.

Pretty much got flamed for driving like a jackass and was told to slow down. And I'll be damned, slowing down fixed it.

There are PLENTY of shops that do 5spd swaps. Also "do it yourself it?". Doesnt make sense

Thanks SoFlaKidd, I looked into Performance Innovation Engineering and found their working website. They are still in business! I'm talking with that performance shop I mentioned before, I'll call this one too and see what they say!
