Lots of running around to locate all the parts Joe has included for $700. Shop is going to charge you for all that chasing or might not have it figured into their estimate and then hit you up for more $ when they realize it's not easy finding the right governor for example.
I would think Joe's turnkey solution would make it easier to find a mechanic to do the work if you don't want to.
