Usually the Hot Rod shop is pretty straight. I have had work done at both and I will tell you Vinnie and his guys are good. If anything goes bad they will fix it. Now Mike will also, but recently (less than a month) a guy I work with had his clutch and a SC put on his GT. He drove it up north to Missouri and it was acting weird. The Car wouldn't shift clean and it was loud. Well it broke down in Oklahoma. The supposed King Cobra clutch that was put in wasn't there, it was actually a smaller Clutch that didn't fit. The transmission was toast. Mike said the guy who worked on it was wrong and that he had fired the guy. He then paid for the bill on this guys car and had the work done right. So I guess it depends on where you prefer. Usually a good price on gears is about $200.00-$250. Low ball 150.00 if you provide the shims and fluid. Good luck.
