I have a 6hp with the A051 plate. Apparently they're becoming rare. Most places are only rebuilding them now rather than outright selling rebuild units.

Why are you paying a shop to drop it. So it yourself. It takes maybe 30mins.
Drain fluids. Drop the pan.
Pull the mechatronic locking tab. Turn mechatronic sleeve to unlock/unscrew electronic plug. Remove plug.
Unscrew valve body bolts and lower valve body. Let it all drain. Dry off. Remove TCM carefully. Pack in about 3 bag. Package and mail off.

Im rounding up a shop to drop the transmission, once that's drained and out I can remove the valve body & torque converter for reconditioning.
