Ford Dealer shop men here?

Are there any dealer mechanics on the forum here? I am trying to get a handle on what the shop rate would be at a dealership to rebuild the fuel pressure regulator on a 2007 6.0. Mine has started leaking at the "keyhole" gasket and I really don't have time right now to mess with it. I'm just trying to see if a dealership would be high. I know many go by a book rate as to what a customer gets charged. I would have the upgraded kit put in at the same time, so I don't want to just replace the gasket.

I would charge an hour labor. There really isn't any book time on swapping it out but it's a minor chore if that's all you're going to have done.

Diesel labor rates are going to vary from $80-$100 typically

Thanks. I know many on here say do it yourself or at least avoid the dealerships. I know they are higher, but 1)we have no dedicated diesel shops around here, 2)I am too busy right now to do my own work, 3)I am friends with the shop foreman, although I would not use that friendship to take unfair advantage, and 4)If they break it, they fix it. If I break it, I fix it. And they warranty their work for a year.
