    I don't want it to, but I know it will probably before the end of winter. I'm planning ahead so I know where to take it.

    I know it sounds generic but Crystal Lake Trans is a great shop and they know thier way around a trans. They can rebuild you a stock trans or they can build you all the way up to a race trans. They have been building my Dads trans for years and after they build them, they have never failed. They have recently just built mine also and did it within a day. They also warranty thier work for either 2 years or 3 years. I dont know the phone # but searching on yahoo local for Crystal Lake Transmisson will find the #
