In both scenarios, that user would be me. I ran into a lot of issues along the way but its definitely worth it.

I cant believe how much a used 8.8 costed me with 3.31s, and I still had to service the pinion seal after install. And unfortunately for me, I bought a used (newtakeoff) that came with no fifth gear.. Luck of the Irish :)

Gaylon has been fantastic to work with, and his kit really is the balls.
