When I had my trans rebuilt a few years ago, the shop did their own "j-mod" - as with replacing servos, O/D band, accum pistons/springs, etc, etc. I guess it helps when the tech doing the rebuild was a Ford mechanic for 20+ years. They did one hell of a job - little mom and pop place that was in a sh!thole of a neighborhood lol. The trans shifts well and chirps on the 1-2.
$200 is pretty damn fair - I second that notion. Most places will charge $125+ just to drain and refill with Mercon V - keep in mind, labor at most shops runs over $80/hr!
