Do you plan on paying a shop to do it? I would plan a day to swap it in. Just gotta find a Cobra owner who wants an SRA

It bolts directly in place. The only change that is needed is pinion flange or end of driveshaft

I have no clue of a shop would install that for you. Maybe find a custom shop?

Figure 4-5 hours billable labor. I don't know what the shops in your area would charge. I've done swaps in a few hours in my garage.

You'd have to find a Mustang shop that knows what you are talking about. You need a complete IRS, you need the pinion flange from the DS and you need a IRS catback. If you do find a shop that will do it prepare to lube up. Figure $1200-$1500 shipped from ebay or a forum member for the IRS, $50 for the flange, $400 for a cheaper catback and then whatever the labor rate is if you can find a shop to do it. Then there is the fact that you'll get massive wheel hop and deflection with the stock rubber bushings. Another $700 to get the FTBR Delrin kit and the labor to put that in too before you bolt the IRS into place.

I'm not trying to dissuade you from this swap, I'm just letting you know what you are in for $$ wise. And like I said you'll have to find a Mustang or speed shop that will even do this.

I'm still of the opinion when you start getting into swaps like this if you aren't going to do it yourself you probably shouldn't bother.
