Gear install quotes....

I have seen quite a bit of posts around this forum about how much gear installs usually go for...

I'm in Orlando, and called around a couple of shops

The shop I work at, a 3.73 gear install out the door is right at 850.00 dollars

I will not disclose companies..

Local speed shop, 900 otd with FRPP gears

Another 650 and another 750.

So all in all, from reputable shops here in fl, you'll be looking from 600-1k easy.

Company I work for is a national chain with nearly 100 stores, and do gear jobs on a daily basis.

How often do people leave your shop with Gear howl with 3.73s or 4.10s? Just checking if this is common from what you have seen.

If that's $6-900 for all you bring to the shop is the car with them supplying the gears, install kit and lube that's not terrible. I think my install was $350 + the $265 or whatever for the kit from AM so like $615 out the door.

If I'm bringing all of the materials, anything more than $400 for labor is a rip off.

Some lift's posts are too big to get underneath the car, so you have to jack up certain parts of the car to get them under the vehicle

It was a shop on a lift. He said some BS about the lowering and lowering parts made it harder and take longer. Not sure I bought it either but was still cheaper than the other quotes and he came highly recommended for quality.

Hey at least he changed my turn signal fluid while in there for cheap.

I paid $650 (cad) tax included, which is like $500 U.S.D. I just dropped off my car, didn't supply anything. The shop only uses ford racing gears and RP.
This does not include a gear kit though.

This thread and my 3.73 thread have great info. Yes its nice when people post threads for good experiences and reviews. But what people need to know is the ugly potential side. Such as bearings breaking due to crappy Motive kit, paying for a rebuild, being down a car for additional days, and arguing with vendors. Please please research before doing this. If possible, let the shop provide parts. Because they will warranty those. They normally WON'T warranty customer provided parts. Which is bad if anything goes wrong.

Yeah, lol. I'm glad some guys got cash for that. Maybe they'd loan me enough for a new heat exchanger.

To be completely honest with this statement, to me this goes for any work done on a car. In my personal experience I felt with a shop who may not primarily work on Mustang or even cars for that matter(normally truck work) if they pride themselves on specialist in a particular area meaning it's what they primarily do, even then that doesn't guarantee accidents won't happen while working on a vehicle. So over all to me it's like our cars. You gotta pay to play and take some risks for the benefits that might come from it. That's as simples as a brake job to a trans change

I understand. The shop I went with specialize in Mustangs. They got a lot of old ones sitting outside which gives a nice appeal as you drive up. They have done many gear installs. But he suggested if I ever change gears again, to not go with Motive parts.

Steeda, in Pompano Beach, charged me $650 and that included Ford Racing gears and the full installation (and taxes). And, I got a 2 years warranty. I'd recommend them to anyone.

Anything and everything can go bad, they are mechanical parts, sometimes they fail.. it is what it is.

But i get hook ups at work and i don't feel that need the gears have to be from ford to be great gears. The gears i use in all my vehicles have been from beating them off road to beating them at the drag strip.

OP, Holy sheet man. I paid 300 out the door for my gear install job. I purchased separate the gears, install kit, gear oil and friction modifier from AM. I'm not in Florida and live in Maryland but for those prices I hope the shop provides the KY jelly and gives you a kiss with the install. 👅😉

Have a great day!

Here is a comprehensive list of places in Austin, TX that do performance mods. This way, no one wastes their time. Now you can see why I am soo limited to shops around here. No big names like Steeda to do the installs.


AAMCO on Burnet Road. They do installs for $700 if you provide all your own parts and fluid.

4Wheels will do it for 850 if you dont get the warranty. With Warranty, it is $1,150.

Pro Modular Performance does it for 700-750. That is for the kit and labor. for just labor, you are looking at around $500.

Aikman Performance won't even pick up their phone or call you back. Went through this before with my 2011 V6 for 4 weeks straight.

Annihilator Customs does not do gear swaps.

Ford Dealers near me won't do anything past 3.31 on V6s.

MZM Performance does not work on American cars.

Boost Logic only works on higher end cars (Lamborghinis, GT-Rs, Porsches, etc), and it's usually for big projects.

Elite Racing Development - I called these people and they said they didn't want to do these types of jobs.

Eagle Transmission - They do not give over the phone quotes, they have to take a look at everything needed and what is going on in person before giving a quote. So this can vary.

Cottman Transmission and Auto Care - They said if they did do the gear install and I provided parts, that the labor would be 700-900.

Ike's Transmission - Quoted 600-1000 depending on the time it takes them. That is for labor only.
