I would talk to me first as I can beat any price you will find for T-Lok and gears.

Get them installed at a performance shop and pay 150-300... not at a stealership.

**** i could get mine installed for a c note, a case of bud light, and possibly lunch. and that's at a dealership.

see, there is perks to working at a dealer. even if it is an Acura dealer.

Re: also!

The key thing to look for on a rear gear installation is that the shop knows what they are doing. Pay twice as much if you have to in order to get the job done right... if they dont do it right it will have to done all over and with new parts aka you will spend twice as much to get it done right as you should have the first time.
