it going to cost more than a trans swap for labor because he has to remove trans, split case, remove stuff, replace stuff at $95 or so a hour id say atleast a 6hr job with all tools could be 10hr and thats just a estimate on labor. you need the lsd, new seals, bearings, lube, special tools, trans fluid. you should get your hydro clutch parts replaced if your 98+ and a clutch/pressure plate/flywheel resurfaced while your going in esp if your paying for labor. so i hope your ready to drop around 2.5k+-

just get the install kit off of GS. it has everything you need. and id also get the arp studs. Harvey has done a billion of them but he is in MD. he's really fair with pricing and not too far away. Baltimore area. id recommend him.

Yep I've been saving like a mofo, unfortunately when the trans blew in the faster car I only had the money for the rebuilt trans, flywheel clutch and pressure plate and now i wish i just credit carded it because the interest would have been equal to the extra labor. Of course that would also mean giving a brand new trans to the people at the caddy dealership :-/ in oklahoma.

Baltimore is quite a long haul for me (I'd probably need a hotel room for at least a night), but feasterville is close I'll give demi a call

yea it will be worth it after its installed. lsd makes a big difference on launching and handling.

in future im looking at using the OBX f35 lsd($300) in my f25, then barley moding the strut assembly and i might need viggen abs sensors for some reason. plus the lsd install kit from GS. and im doing my own labor. thats me saving thousands. but its going to be awhile before im ready

and to above comment why would you have to give a new trans to a dealer in oklahoma if you used credit card?

My transmission blew when i was at grad school there and had it towed to the dealership in Norman, it was the only place i knew in the area that worked on Saabs off the top of my head. I had a graduate student stipend of $1250/month, i think after all was said and done the whole ordeal cost me 3 or 4 grand for rebuilt trans, rear main seal, slave cyl, clutch, spec flywheel, and pressure plate along with the absurd dollars per hour that they charge. So dug deep into my savings, and said no to getting an LSD.
