This is our guru. He may be able to help you out. Check the trusted mechanics thread first. You don't want just anyone working on your car. Especially tranny shops.

I'll give you a hand. I have a decent amount of tools and combined with the how-to, we can source anything we don't have. I'm always looking for a reason to buy some new tools. To be safe, we may want to do it here in my garage where the tools are. Its a major pain in the ass to pack everything up. Plus if I forgot something, one of us is out the cost of that tool.
