I got a 2013 v6 and I want to buy some 3.73 Gears and I just wanted to know how much will it be to Install them
LOLTime to get a new friend for price quotes!
Yea the most you would truly spend is like 400 for install broI'm happy to hear that it's not that much money because One of my friends told me it's like $1100
U can get the bearing for 20-25 from autozone bro i did instead of paying AM 89I got quotes from respected shops here in FL for between $500 and $750. I went with steeda and paid $533 out the door. Thats for gears, install, and all the gaskets and fluids. If you need new bearings you can add about $100 on to that price but with a 2013 you should be fine. I had just over 30K miles on my 2012 when I got mine done and did not need new bearings.
but i want the bama tune thats why i want to get combo so i have both but before i buy i want to make sure the 3.73 gears come with everything so when i go to a shop i just pay for the install and nothing elseIf your not installing the gears yourself you are better off just buying them from the place that is installing them. If you want to try it yourself then there is an install kit you can buy. It has the gaskets, gear oil and just about everything else you need.
thats a dealer for ya. There not going to give you a good deal because they dont want to have to warranty the work. Your better off going to a speed shop that is used to doing things like gears anyways. You will get a better price and a shop that does gear swaps regularly.My local ford dealer told $500 just to install they must not want my buisness or think im just stupid. Lol
He's right, unless your dealer is a Mustang fan, and many are, use a speed shop.thats a dealer for ya. There not going to give you a good deal because they dont want to have to warranty the work. Your better off going to a speed shop that is used to doing things like gears anyways. You will get a better price and a shop that does gear swaps regularly.
Unless in the last 30-40 years gears got to be a drop-in operation like an alternator, most folks back in my day had to go to a shop that did Gears to make sure the "gunsmith like fit" would last for 100,000 miles. If gear shims were off in 20K miles they could be ruined. Dealers had guides and jigs to do it for their brand, and speed shops had "speed smiths" that could do it in their sleep. Standard Mec shops hardly ever had folks experienced in gears.I have no clue what this all entails so I am wondering what shops you guys are going to? Just a regular mechanic that you trust or are these specialty shops or just dropping it off at a Jiffy Lube and hoping for the best?
