If you were looking for anything else automotive I could help you, but on transmissions I don't know anyone that has been completely happy with any shop. And my dad is a master tech with all kinds of connections.

they also offer a 3 yr warranty for a bit more and there are some restrictions...i.e. the warranty may only be available to repair the tranny at that specific location, etc. in the event if it breaks while under warranty...Harvey is pretty good about communication with the customer and he's always busy....

I dont know why that is, but our friend had a late model drag stang that regularly received work from that shop. For the longest time he ran an auto tranny w/ twin turbos. later he switched to std. when he pushing 30psi.+. Maybe they switched up they business approach. I dont lobby these guys I'm reffering.

Well I guess your chit out of luck if ya drive an auto. Either way they did great job on my STD. Tranny. I paid $1000 for rebuilt tranny.
