Just a couple points. The aftermarket ring and pinions currently available make way more noise than any of the new gears on the market. Those old Andial ones have been gone for years. I sold my last Ricardo made one to a Pelican about six months ago. Buyer beware if you care about noise.

My gears run $1095. Albins recently dropped their prices to $936.

Expect installing a ring and pinion to be about 12 hours of labor. Expect gears to be around 8. The pinion depth and backlash set up, if done well and with the right tools will be about 4 hours to do. At an average shop rate of $100, that’s $400. Ring and pinions are usually around $2500-2800. If you do the math that puts gears and a ring and pinion at about the same cost. This assumes you do 3 gears.
