Default 2004 vue 6 - cvt to manual swap - recommended mechanic in San Diego ca ?

Does anyone know of anyone who can do a transmission swap on a 2004 Saturn vue 6 cylinder from the awful CTV transmission to a manual? This transmission was replaced two months ago to a used one as they didnít know how to swap it out and itís already dead again. Looking for someone in San Diego, ca or nearby in Southern California. Thank you!

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

The V6 in your Vue uses a cvt? I thought CVTs were only used with the 4cyl 2.2L engine. Several threads here by members have successfully switched faulty CVTs to manual but only with the 2.2L engine.

The CVT was not on any V-6 Saturn engine. It nearly managed to handle the power of the 4 cylinder. It would never be able to handle a V-6.
