So far, so good with our week-old newer-generation Honda Transmission AV6 (actually 2005 Odyssey) swap! Real glad we went this route instead of trying more band-aids on our orig 120k mile 2003 Acura TL transmission (1st generation problematic 5 speed design).

He's not strictly a Honda/Acura mechanic. I'd say he's a good mix of a domestic & foreign repair/maintenance/custom shop.

As my TL was rolling out he was getting ready to roll in an early Pilot needing a typical OEM tranny swap, but he said he'd be interested in doing more of these next-gen tranny swaps too.

He's been part of larger organizations in the past - - but he's a one-man shop now. I don't want to increase his "electronic distractions" - - so post here or PM me to discuss, and if it seems to be a good fit I'll PM you his contact info.

Man, I don't want to ask him out on a date or anything ... just looking for a mechanic in case I need one when I visit Raleigh.

Sorry if my approach towards this disappoints you. I'm super happy I was able to find a local mechanic willing & able to take on the next-gen AV6/Ody swap into our TL (referencing PDF instructions I printed), when all other mechanics around here would only contemplate "OEM type" exchanges...

I would definitely use this guy again for similar swap, but for everyday Acura/Honda shops, I think TAO is highly recognized....
