    From the replies given in this thread. I have came up with the conclusion of:

    fuck gears. :p :rant: :rollinglaugh:











    :noes: J/k. Doubt ill have them anytime soon. I was just wondering what was the thoughts of gears.

    They cost $150-160ish, but the install is going to be expensive.

    Guess ill have to tackle the install and install the gears myself. I mean i cant fuck up putting gears on my car.





















    Im joking once again about installing myself. Welps :D

    thxs for the replies

    NO gear set should whine if installed correctly..While I've heard that FRPP are easier to install, any competent shop should be able install gears without having whine..
