Stage1 Shift Kit & 3.9-1 Gear:

Hey yall,
Just checkin on a rough price for the above & fitted?
I was thinkin no more then $1,000.00.
Shift Kit: $350.00 (mechanical/internals)
3.9-1 Gears: $450.00
Labour: $200.00
Total: $1,000.00 ish
Wat all yu guys think? Roughly.. would that be reasonable??
My ride is an XR8.
Carlos,

I would factor a bit more for the ratio change- new bearings, gaskets etc, it all adds up!

Cheers,

Re: Stage1 Shift Kit & 3.9-1 Gear:

Just depends- a diff might seem to be fine but when they pull it down it might need to have extra work done on it- I recently got the ratio changed in my 9" and it cost me an extra $600 for basically a total rebuild which I wasn't aware it needed.

Just doesn't hurt to have a bit of extra cash set aside just in case!

Cheers

Wise words fella.
I was just a lil' concerened on the price, thats all.. but you have calmed me down majorily. Getting the work done today, and ive been told.. that it will cost no more then $1,000.00... Im more then happy to pay for that, considering the work done, and time needed.
Second gears chirps shuld be par for the course!

Re: Stage1 Shift Kit & 3.9-1 Gear:

Is your xr8 a AU carlos ??? I think i saw some where that it was. IF so your wasting your time changing diff gears if its a auto. The ecu's torque reduction strategies will get even worse and completely null the gain. Run a search here and on the austrailian site you will see heaps of threads on it.
