How much do you think a transmisson shop will charge to install a aftermarket torque converter in my Riviera?


Edit: Mods please move to lounge as that was its intended location. Sorry :(

Figure 4-5 hours of labor at a shop that knows your type of car.

Around my neck fo the woods, the smaller shops are usually the ones who eff everything up and mickey it in there and charge you more than the bigger shops IMO

I'm guessing around $500-$600
