Trans shop for JMOD in Dallas area

Can anyone make any recommendations in the Dallas area for trans work?
I pulled the tranny from my cougar and swapped in one from my old Mark VIII (TC and flexplate as well), but would like to have the one I removed get the JMOD and accumulator updates, so it will be a waiting/ready replacement when the Mark VIII one goes out on me. Also will be looking for a new F63 TC to go on it, depending on budget.

Most tranny shops in the area I've talked to want to sell an additional shift kit, like Transgo or B&M, but don't seem to know about the JMOD procedure for some reason, or at least they play dumb about it.

I know, I could probably do it myself and come out just fine, but I'd rather someone who has all the needed tools available, and some prior experience do it.

Thanks in Advance!

Buy an already drilled plate from Rob (look in the parts for sale section, or look for his posts). Even if you do the drilling yourself, all that is needed is a drill, specific bits (which can be tough to find, but not impossible), and pretty hefty internal snap ring pliers.

I drilled out my own plate for my 97 Cougar, and was happy with the results, but decided to buy the kit from Rob for my 97 Mark VIII, and am happy with the results as well.

Stay away from those shift kits, just do the specified separator plate drilling, check an see if you have already have the new 1-2 and 2-3 style pistons (and also if new bonded steel/rubber one, that it isn't worn, torn, cracking, etc). I also replaced the pressure regulator and boost valve with Sonnax upgraded/not worn out parts.
