My 2003 MR2 with 63,000 miles shows failure of the Hydraulic Power Unit and the Gear Shift Actuator. Given the problems when SMT starts breaking down, I am afraid replacing those will just lead to more, and am thinking about converting to MT. There's a kit that looks complete at Monkey Wrench Racing, and I would need a mechanic. Probably somebody that does racing mods on engines and transmissions. Does anyone have experience with this transition? Anyone know a shop in Arizona that can do this kind of work?
