Ron,

We have the space/tools here at the shop to do it for you.

Nobody here has done a T56 swap though. I'm not sure what I'm offering here....

For the $400 you mentioned earlier I'm sure the mechanic here could R&R trannsmissions, and do the wiring and install. I'm a little apprehensive about us cutting the floor and stuff like that.

I'm just brainstorming here. Maybe bring it Sunday and someone with experience (Crovo) could give us some tips/help with the cutting and other stuff.

Does the tranny hafta be removed to cut the floor? I'm guessing no?

Somebody chime in and help me here. Not really sure where I'm going with this. I guess the price we would have to charge would all depend how much work we could get done on Mod day for free.

Alright I just spoke to the Mechanic.

He is fully confident he can do the whole job from start to finish. Let me know if that's something you wanna do.

I've never done the actual floor cutting, but it's not too tough. I've watched it happen a couple times. It's a VERY straightforward install and could be done by a competent pair of mechanics in a day, easy. Both of mine were.

And if I didn't have 4 cars (MYSELF) that need work, a new daughter that I just wanna spend all my time with, a deck that needs built, a fence that needs repaired, a garage that needs sheetrocked, a basement that needs cleaned and organized, and... and... and... Well, then I'd offer to help. Sorry Ron. I just don't have the time this year. Sad

Ron, I may know of someone who could do it for you. He's really busy too, but he helped me with my first swap. Maybe he could get yours done, too. I'll see if I can get in touch with him. He's tough to get a hold of sometimes...
