    To make you feel even more nervous...

    My car had 50k~ on it when I bought it. Taken VERY well care of.

    Trans took a dump soon after (even had a cooler, shift kit, and a tune).

    They're also a tedious thing to replace...the LS4 is full of stupid crap like wiring harness, mounts, and clips compared to the 3800.

    hahaha.. LS4 isn't the most fun.. it's not the worst thing either.

    Consider this.. 3 hour driveshaft swap... less than 1/4 mile and it's stripped itself in the middle. Which is not servicable.. lol the fun I have

    Brandon won't steer you wrong, he's a great guy.

    I don't have a shop..the banner was a joke. A forum I was on.. everyone was barely touching up a part and saying they machined it..then saying they were with their LastName motorsports. There had been a Barney and tons of pictures, I took the joke a wee bit further lol.
