You are asking for a lot. None of the standard RANS turbulence models will do transition for you (as k = epsilon = 0 is a solution to the system!). Depending how serious you are, I can only suggest LES or finding an easier problem.

I modified Menter's SST turbulence model during grad school to predict transition and it actually worked quit well. If you send me an email I can forward you a paper on it.
