(yes, while taking the last pic I realized that I accidently ran the e-brake cables and abs sensors under the upper arms. They belong on top.)

+1. They sound awesome!

I got a steal. $150 for one with 69k. It's not hard if you've done it before, but if you haven't it's tough. I had to drop my exhaust too. You need at least two people to stay safe, three makes it easiest. If you have an experienced buddy, do that. A shop down here in Texas wanted $600. I was like, hell no, I'll do it myself for that.

Ive got 2 pans, the front pan has a drain plug, the pan further back beneath the bell housing does not, but says oil pan on it. The oil pan is definitely the front one, does that mean the trans pan is the one behind it.
