you could use the USE mutagenesis kit from pharmacia .. or the kit from
clonetech ( i do not remember the name ) .. in these kits you use the
construct in whatever plasmid you have it in ... no subcloning at all 
the pharmacia kit is based on the paper by deng and Nickoloff ... Anal
Biochem 200 pp 81-88 ( 1992) 
Several of us  have used this and it has worked quite well 
if you have any more questions you can email me
