Most guys on here seem to be do-it-yourselfers....long tubes & xpipe are fairly simple things to accomplish yourself if you have a set of tools. Panhard, springs, LCA/UCA, sways are also relatively straight forward to do yourself also.

I would estimate a shop would do your exhaust work for around 2-300 if they don't have to fab anything for you - some shops will not install an exhaust without a catalytic converter so heads up. Suspension might be around 3-500ish. I don't know about doing the gear swap and torque converter - mine is a .373 MT82, so I never had much reason to look into it. Doing the gear swaps seems to be a common thing for guys on here to do, though...I bet a shop would knock it out for around 400 or so.

Tunes could be done yourself via a handheld tuner if you are working with a mail order tune provider, like Lund, AED, BAMA, etc. Having a full dyno tune done at a place would be a bit more than you'd pay with these guys, as you are also paying for dyno time as well as the tune. Safe bet would be 5-600 depending on how the shop does the tuning and how many runs it requires.


You'll probably need access to a lift to do longtubes by yourself, I'm not 100% sure. Most of what you listed could be knocked out over the span of a few weekends with a decent socket set w/ extensions, jacks, jackstands, spring compressors, replacement gear oil, a yard stick, a torque wrench, some patience, a bit of luck, and a few cases of your beer of choice.

Saves you some cash if you manage to do it right by yourself and you earn yourself a few points on the mancard.
