Can't Believe it

Call a guy from my local Mustang club(that I'm not a part of) to see who has reasonable prices for gears install in my area(I have my own gears). I'm still a new transplant to the South. Dude quickly said he can do it at his shop. I said cool, give me a quote and we will go from there.

He said, "$950 Thats shims and bearings gaskets and fluid included"

Now I'm barely a novice when it comes to cars but I do know enough to see dude is trying to get over on me. Can't believe a fellow Mustang enthusiast would try and get over like that

That is a bit much for just swapping out gears.

Where in the south? Any more than $400 including fluids is too high.

Yeah I'd say 200-400 is about right for a gear swap

Maybe I should just move to Texas. I'm in a pick up truck state I do believe. No many muscle car circuits in these parts. Especially when it comes to Chattanooga

Yes sir I want to punch it so bad but I want to play safe and you can feel different with gear and tune

I see now that when I'm ready to supercharge my engine, I might as well drive down to Atlanta to get it done

Same with Dallas/Fort Worth. That bunch of Oklahoma street racers on the Discovery Channel started in Fort Worth and moved north.

Awesome city though.

Hey Tyrigg

$950 is really cheap for the better installation that he will do compared to other shops that only charge $500 or less. After all he is including the shim's and lube and a gasket.

Really, What he is going to do is probably run your car up to the Ford dealer and have it done. Maybe $500.00 to the dealer and only $450 to him.
