So I dropped off my car tonight and got a look at the bill in detail. The install was/is 300$, gears were 230$ something like 40$ for the royal purple and than 15% tax. Remember its Canadian so its probably a little higher than what you might pay in the U.S but just to give you an idea.

From what I hear its two heat cycles. I also heard that highway should b avoided during these cycles but where my car is I have no choice but to do some highway (30km) when I get home I will definitely follow whatever break in period and method they tell me. They are also well aware that I'm a little distance from the shop.

What constitutes a heat cycle, ie: how long, fast, etc. I want to get the 3.55 gears, but the "good" shop I hear about is all the way over in Mass. I live in CT so I would have a long drive (1 hour) with mandatory highway.

The type off driving would be more stop and go city driving, I'm not sure of the longevity of the cycle but when I pick up my car tomorrow I should be able to give you more specifics. They only do mustangs and that was a big reason why I went to this place.

What was your cost out the door total? Did you buy the whole kit from American muscle what addons did you pay for such as rebuild kit and how long did it take the shop to install them? ?

K, So remember everything is in Canadian $$$ so it might be a little higher than U.S prices.

Ford racing 3.73s -219.49
Royal purple 21.95$ ×3 =65.85
Installation 280$
Tax 15%
Total was 650.
Dropped off car Thursday night and picked up Friday night. I also had them install my SR lowering springs which was 125$.

I stopped by my Ford dealer today. I was quoted 3 hours labor for the whole job. Labor here is $105 / hour. American Muscle has the gears (3.73) on sale. I love my 14 auto
convertible, but the transmission always hunting for the next highest gear is frustrating!

It would be nice to feel the power of the engine!
