Probably not. But the gear might wear differently on your car than it did on the other car. So just follow the break-in procedure for a little while.

Agreed, if they wear differently they were set up wrong.

What did it cost you labor wise... roughly shops charges just for the install
I'm wanting to do 373 set if anything else this summer.
