Don't pay more than 2-3 hours labor for a gear install. If they charge you more than that, they are ripping you off.

Maybe if the rear end is out of the car..but if you think you can drive your car in the shop and drive out 2 hours later then you've never done a gear swap.

Last time I paid someone it was 2.5 hours actually. Mustang shop, tech had done a lot of them and wasn't retarded. Not rocket science to do a gear swap.

No it's not rocket science, I've done gear swaps. I actually looked up the hours for the job on all data before I swapped mine recently and I believe it charges 8 hours, maybe 6. I know I had more than 3 hours in my stang.

I'm not saying a mustang specialist can't do it faster than me, but most places don't have mustang specialist. So getting charged 6-8 hours isn't uncommon.

You're kidding right?
Every shop around here charges at least $85 per hour so for 6 hrs that's $510 for a gear swap?
I had a new differential installed a while back and the shop that does my gear work did it in less than an hour and a half... The owner put two guys on the job. It didn't cost me anything but he usually charges about $300 to tear the rear end apart like that.

Doing a gearswap on your back with hand tools in the driveway is not the same as a good shop that has the car on a lift, air tools and all the $$$ goodies. I was in and out in 2.5 hours. I pulled in, sat in the shop waiting room reading car mags (this was before the hell that is smartphones) and pulled out with a speedo reading way off and a buttload more get the hell up and go from my 95 Cobra.

I was actually quoted 450 by they local go to guy for gears(shop with a lift). 2 guys are gonna get it done much faster than one guy.

Like I said before, if its a mustang specific performance shop that deals with 8.8s every day i can see the job being fairly quick.

Well I guess it can be done. I still don't think the guys quote is too far out of the norm. At least not where I live.

There is the "norm" for shops that think you have no other option but them. Then there is laughing in their face and leaving and finding a shop that will actually charge you for the time it takes. I have been quoted anywhere from $250 to $700+ for just the install of gears.
