Reputable Shop in Southern Louisiana (Baton Rouge)
 
Looking for a reputable shop in Southern LA.

Please post shop names and contact info/link.

Also if you haven't done business with them but just heard they're good, I'd rather you not post anything, not being a jerk, just don't want to be a Guinea Pig. I just want to know first hand the good shops.

Thanks

I'm not aware of many shops around that area. I know of Coy's, but have no experience with them. What are you wanting to get done, a lot of knowledge around this chapter that can help ya out.

Manual to auto swap. I have the tranny (47re) being built and really don't have the time to do it myself. Working out of town 6 days a week.

Coys is the last place to bring anything including a ford and thats what he specializes in. You could try Powertrain Specialists is prairieville and see what they say. He is about the best locally with transmissions.

Do you have any experience dealing with Coy's? Or is this just hear-say? And what about Powertrain Specialists? Do you have direct experience working with them as a customer?

Didnt you ask for people with experience not hear say? Ive been to coys, dealt with coy, been bent over by coy, and will not go nor send anyone to him ever again. Powertrain Specialists helped me years ago with my old Z-71 and was some really good guys to deal with. I dont know if they would do an all out swap or not but it doesnt hurt to make a phone call.

I talked to Coy about this and he wanted to put a ford 4r100 in it for a lot more than a 48re, and I mean a lot more like 50% more and I thought to myself, why reinvent the wheel? Anyway I haven't been able to reach him since, lots of calls and emails left no response. So he lost out. I'me sure he busy fixing fords.:wink2:

Southern Diesel in Gonzales did the swap (NV5600 to 48RE). The swap is straight forward after you get all the right parts together AND support for the PCS/ATS Stand Alone Controller. They did a good job and Tate is a good guy.:thumbsup:
