Can anyone recommend a shop that can do transmission work on the south side of Denver?

    I need to find a reputable shop for some transmission work. I appear to have blown the front main seal and i'm looking to get the tranny rebuilt. I was thinking of using Buchtel Motors since the are within 6 miles of the car.
    Does anyone have any recommendations for a good shop? Or what can you tell me about Buchtel if you know about them?

    Thanks guys!

    I guess Yelp reviews will be my guiding light.

    I haven't used these guys myself and they are down way south of Denver... East of Colorado Springs. So, they are probably too far away for you.

    But I have a bud with an old late 70's GMC stepside with a +425 horse 400SBC in front of a TH700R4 they built and he swears by them:

    Thanks guys. I've been calling shops and its amazing how many of them farm out the big work to other shops. When i bought the car i had a garage of my own and a buddy that wanted to help me work on it. Now i have no garage and my buddy hates working on cars now after trying to replace the turbo in his Subaru and then his son's Subaru. I really just want to find a place that does their own work and stands by it. Oh and it needs to be not too far to get to. :)
    My car is currently living down by Broadway and Alameda so i was thinking Englewood or the south side of Denver.

    I had Jeff at Pro Trans Plus (http://www.protransplus.com) do the 700R4 in my 91 Camaro. We beefed it up and we fine tuned the shift points for my Vortec HotCam 350. He does all his own builds in house and I highly recommend him. He knows them inside and out. My car barks the tires on the 1st to 2nd shift and now runs higher up in the rpms before shifting in D. It runs better than ever. He does good work and will stand by it and warranty his stuff.
