Default SMG to manual swap (West) LA area?

Any recommendations on a shop that's done this before?

If you're serious about the swap then you'll definitely go to Kaiv in sunny SD. He finished my entire swap in a day and answered a bunch of questions I had.

Insightful, experienced, and simply a great dude above all else. Affordable too

I would go with Kaiv, he did mine from start to finish. Had my car towed to him all the way from LA to SD and picked it up a few days later. He answered each and every question I had about the swap.

Kaiv just finished up my swap and couldn't be happier!!
I made the drive from Phoenix AZ and it was well worth it. He's very professional and kept me updated during the swap.
