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. 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.
