best NH place to install gears??

I'm getting quotes of over $1350 for 3.91 gears installed at dealers. So is there a better option?

In, NH probably not the dealer prices include several things the big one they don't explain is the 12 hr install with the 5+ hours worth of breaks and lunches. I'd check with some of the local auto shops where in NH are you from so i can get a better idea of whats around you.

I've never used them but if you remove the center section yourself and send it to Jannetty it's cheaper and you can do it during the winter months

Not in NH but Slowhawk in Bridgewater MA is your best bet. I've had work done at Jannetty and had I known about Slowhawk, I'd have gone there.

I assume one of your quotes was from MacMulkin's in Nashua? That is where I bought my Camaro.


How about Tim's Speed and Custom 22 Pond St. Nashua , NH.

I got a quote from Slowhawk, but they only install during the week. So I got to try and plan a vacation day to be able to get it done.

Is that price including parts? If so, it doesn't seem too crazy for a dealer.

I live almost 3 hrs away, so that would be tuff to find someone to pick me up and drop me off and kill 2 Saturdays.

Thanks, this is a great option when you don't have anywhere close you can trust.

We can either build you a diff and send it along you can change it out and send us your core or you can send us yours and we can build it.

We stock all the parts and can do a very quick turn around usually 1-2 days.

Ted.

I would go to a real shop that knows what they are doing. There are some shops out there that like to think they can do more than they can and they can nickel and dime you.

Slowhawk is a great reputable shop.

Jannetty may be a bit far from you. But they recently worked on my Camaro last week. They did EXCELLENT work, had all the parts in stock, answered any and all questions I had. And was reasonable in cost.
