Default any one in toronto area know a good tranny shop?

Subject line says it all. I've been having a problem with a 1-2 hard shift and would like to have it looked at before things get worse. Does anyone from the gta area know of a good reputable transmission shop?

Theirs a small but reputable shop on Sheppard And Warden, its called Superior Transmission. They fixed the tranny on my 1986 Cadillac Fleetwood, I put just over 15k on her since and runs like a dream.

Only one shop to consider in Toronto (sorry Soly). That would be Redline on Midwest Dr in the Lawrence and Midland area. They know these trannys inside out. Going there for a shift kit next. Prices are more than fair too. I have the phone number somewhere if you need it.

When I first joined...I forget how I found it..but here is Foghorn'* post regarding Redline. If I lived nearby..they'd have my business from his recommendation alone.
