Look up Diesel Addiction in NC. Any well known trans shop in your area could put a shift kit in. Its really not that hard.

If they do it right, yes.

Problem with a shop that doesn't specialize in performance allison builds is if the clutch clearance doesn't come out right then they don't have the extra parts laying around to swap out clutches/pistons/plates to get the clearances right. Depending on what your end goal is I would go to some one that knows what they are doing.

I know Dustin at Diesel Addiction is one that knows what he's doing, he's about 5 hours from the Norfolk area if you take hwy 17 (nice easy drive too)

I would take it to Dustin at Diesel Addiction. He's working on my truck now and really knows what he is doing.

Dustin at Diesel Addiction is finishing mine up today. I'll be picking it up tonight. I had him do the Gmax5 kit with ML Precision converter, transfer case brace and pump rub fix. Can't wait to get it.
