look into BTS (brains truck shop) or JW (john woods) they are considered the best. your local shop may/may not be able to do it.

I have a good local builder who does a lot of lightning 4r100s.
I'm just trying to get a ballpark on price. This is gonna be my gfs dd and won't be pulling anything crazy, Maybe a two horse trailer every now an again.

I'm a tech myself and am thinking of taking it on myself. I build 15,000 rpm motorcycle engines weekly and have done a lot of manual transmission work, just never tore in to an auto before.
