    This is what my labor rate program shows;

    Tranny remove and install 7.6 hours
    (average around here is about $600.00 to $800.00)

    Remove,Overhaul and Install 17.1 hours
    (I would have to call my tranny guy to get this estimate)

    If your installing a used tranny they will also
    charge for fluid,flushing cooler lines and misc.

    Also owners choice;New filter and gasket,seals and misc.

    Optional while tranny is out;Tranny mount/s,lines possible switches,sensors.

    Price on used tranny depends on mileage. http://car-part.com will
    show salvage yards in your area.

    Price on complete job would require calling at least 6+ shops to
    see what they would charge and ask about there warranty.
