This is much closer to what someone should expect..
Also the 'upgrade' kit has been available for many many months now... not sure what you guys think you're waiting for. I bought my gears for $223 shipped and bought the other tools I needed from jegs or summit. took me some time to get it all right since it was my first time messing with that kind of stuff. otherwise a great weekend DIY for the backyard mechanic.
