for that amount of money you could buy a complete rear assembly and spend a few hours swapping it in and still save 500 bucks lol

Thanks Hench GT. Just shot them an e-mail. I don't really need more acceleration so I may just skip it altogether but it's worth a shot. A better suspension would be much more usefull for me.

I'm officially giving up on the gear swap. As I put on more miles (up to 2200) my Stang is getting quicker so I realize I don't really need it. The cost, complexity, difficulty, problems people have had, have made this a no-go for me. If it was easy to get done I would've done it but it seems it wasn't meant to be. Dean's Performance never responded to my email BTW. It's always been a bad sign when I have to beg people to take my money, Never turns out well in the end. Why have a website with a contact link if you won't respond? Now I get to focus on other things like suspension.

I'll give them another chance in the future if I need anything done, I need a good local shop experienced with newer Mustangs. It's just
as well, I need other things more than the gear swap.

One of my local performance shop quoted me $275 for labor. I'm planning to bring him my 3.73 kit next week.
