yes sir i believe they warranty there work for up to a year after install and from what i have read here on these forums you dont want some cheap shop doing your gears. You will be going back to get them redone not once but twice or even three times. I had brenspeed do my gears for 500 and didnt think twice about letting them do it. Gears is one install you dont want skimp out on. IF u cant afford it right away save for anther month and please do yourself a favor and let a reputable shop do the install.

I believe CJ pony parts is priced about the same as brenspeed

This is a good number.

Installing headers we drop the K member. Installing gears can take a while depending on how lucky you are with selecting the proper size shims.

The shop I inquired about is definitely a reputable shop. Probably the best with dealing with Mustangs, so the numbers definitely are comparable.
