??? I'd say you live on the RIGHT coast! $4500 sounds pretty high to me, Dave, but a 5r110 failure is pretty weird too. Leave it to the guy who can crack the body on a Ford van to tweak one though.
If I were you, going where you go, I would just do it. There's a lot of peace of mine in who rebuilt it and how it is done. His reputation is impeccable.
For ANYONE else I would say go with a salvage yard low mileage unit because the 5r110 is supposedly almost bulletproof as is.
Let us know how it turns out.
