5 year 50K warranty. Are you out of warranty? Or did they deny because of pulley and tune? If it’s not under warranty I would pull it out of there and take it to a reputable transmission shop. The fuel service is just an upsell the brakes are probably close but you don’t need them to do it.

Hard to say. If the fluid is really burnt inside trans it’s likely part of your problem. Did you ask to see if while they had it apart???

that estimate honestly isn’t that bad. My co worker just needed a new trans put in his company Caravan and it was $6850 thru dealer. I had to call about the invoice before I approved it, after spitting coffee all over my desk lol.

If you have already increased HP and need a tranny, and not covered under warranty, I would check with the vendors here and get a built one.

That's why finding a tuner is critical. The trans either wasn't tuned or tuning was too aggressive. I'm glad I have a manual lol. The only trans tuning available for my car is working out on my right hand.

Some details from Southern Hot Rod's page:
