I was going to drive down to SC for a gear install from a shop some here had installs from. But on another thread about breaking in the gears with hot/cold cycles and the 3 hour drive on the highway I guess is not recommended. Now I will need to find someone around Raleigh-Durham, NC that hopefully has a good rep. Bummer.

What's the difference between a gear swap and a new car with zero miles on it?

Ha ha

So I bought my Mustang new and had to do no Hot/Cold break in on the rear end. It shouldn't be any different if I swapped out the gears.

Point well taken on break in. I suppose I was reading posts from some overly cautious owners.

Just vary your speed the first 1000 miles. Although that's more for engine break in than gears. You'll be fine.

I drove from ATL to Charlotte back in May and averaged just under 26 mpg with my 3.73, BAMA 87 Street tune, and Airaid CAI at around 78 mph.

That excited me because I used to get far lower mpgs. She has just under 15k miles on her, and I just cleaned the filter right before I made that run; so, I don't know if she is just broken in better or what.
