I'd say any reputable shop with good techs should be able to perform what you need.

If you have any mechanical ability at all you should be able to do it yourself. If you really don't want to tackle it, any trans shop can handle it and just about any automotive repair shop should be able to handle it.

It's a pretty easy install. I just did mine last night. The only thing is you need and inch-lbs torque wrench. Here is a good write up on how to do it.

kinda messy but not difficult to do at all. MY dumb A$$ didnt know how my in/lb torque wrench functioned so i broke one of the studs off and had to track one down the next day, other than that it is easy to do yourself if you want to save some coin.

I was thinking that the valve body had check valves and alot of little parts inside of it . I think I can handle it. Thanks for the help.
