6.0 High Pressure leaks.. ?Question?

Wow.. My 1st post!! Hello all. I have a 2006 F-250 6.0 powerstoke question. I recently took my truck to the shop because I'm having problems with the infamous "NO-START" when the engine is at operating temp. I know that this High Pressure Oil Pump (HPOP) related problem probably has been discussed about 30 million times, but I haven't seen anyone post the costs related to fixing the issue. First, let me give you guys a run down of what my local Ford Service Center came up with. This is what was on my service invoice:

*********************************************
VERIFIED CONCERN PERFORM VISUAL INSP=ENG OIL LEV OK/FUEL COND OK.
PERFORM SELF TEST=(KOEO) KEY ON ENGINE RUNNING ANDPASS,DTC IN MEMORY P0676 GLOW PLUG #6 CIRCUIT,P2291 (ICP) INJECTOR CONTROL PRESS TO LOW ENG CRANKING. MONITOR ICP PRESS/V=KOEO .24VOLTS) O PSI,CRANKING ENG=ICP PRESS 324PSI(500PS MIN FOR ENG TO START)IPR%=84.7 CLOSED TO BUILD PRESS.CHECK BASE PRESS=PASS 52-68PSI/PERFORM AIR TOR FOR HP OIL SYST=LEAKS SOUND PRESENT AT THE REAR ENG AND LHS OF ENG(NEED TO INSP IPR VALVE/STC AND REMOVE LHS VALVE COVER TO INSP.PERFORM GLOW PLUG TEST BANK 2=#6 GP 98 OHMS(SPEC.1-2 OHMS)=FAILED GLOW PLUG.

Removed valve cover on left side and continue the diagnoses for crank no start, there’s a leak on the left side and at the rear of engine.
*********************************************

With what you see here, can anyone give me a "ball park" or "worst case scenario" estimate of what I should be paying for the repair? I'm only asking because my truck is at a "Truck & Fleet" Ford service center, and I'm trying to see if I'm getting dramatically overcharged being the type of service place it is. Any input is well appreciated. Thanks in advance!

If its a crank no start hot its either the standpipes/dummy plugs or the STC fitting. Standpipes and dummy plugs easy to change, they are under the valve cover. STC fitting replacement requires turbo and intake removal in most cases.

I just had my HPOP replaced last week to the tune of $1500.

Do u have an idea what the worse case scenario would cost in this case? (dealership price)

Since its newer its most likely not the hpop itself, the older ones had aluminum and broke the pumps. That means based on the report of the sound that is both stc and standpipes/dummy plugs. Im going to do my standpipes/dummy plugs this weekend, toulsey ford I think its called sells the kit for 102. STC is 70 I think. Dealer labor is going to be high with either, going to GUESS 400 in labor to do just stc or just standpipes/dummy plugs and 500 to do both, thats not including parts. If you choose to do it yourself the only extra cost would be a $13 turbo bolt kit, and maybe hpop cover gasket if its not reuseable. As far as standpipes/dummy plugs go, ive been told its easy so im doing it myself. Stc is an issue for me due to not being able to go a day without a truck, and taking the turbo off just doesnt seem quick in my eyes.

Standpipes and dummy plugs: $700 parts and labor(figure 5hrs@$100)

STC fitting replacement: $1000 parts and labor(figure 9hrs@$100)

I would be willing to bet though your problem is the dummy plugs...
