I think he may have been talking about the 4T40/4T45-E. Not much of a mechanic IMO if he don't know what trans was used in what cars.

To do it in a shop takes alot of prep on the shops part, as that shop will NOT do a driveway style job at all.
You're paying for the service wiriter to sign in the job and take all the information, you're paying for the tech to inspect all other components of the trany, your paying for the work that goes into installing the shift kit (properly doing so includes drilling the shift plates out for FASTER fluid evacuation in the drums), and youre paying for the test drive and leak check/final inspection.
I would charge you 8 hours for that job.

They know what trany you have lol. 4T45 is the same basic layout as a 65 as an 85.

What Matt is getting at is..there is much more that goes into the job when a transmission shop does the work.

Don.. go to TJ'*..make him do it with you. I hear it'* quite easy.
