Default Who can do a trans swap for me. In chicago?

Located in Chicagos north side..Need to do a trans swap, but trying to avoid any of the major shops. I remember reading that there are a couple of people locally that do work on the side on Subbys, but can't seem to find any info on them. Anyone want to help me out with their contact info? thanks!

I have a lift and a trans jack. Ill do the work for much less. However, the drive to me is probably farther than you would like.

Well at least someone in the industry has a good name. I like that. I hear so many horror stories, it makes me wonder if there is anyone that offers quality and confidence in an honest package anymore.
