6.0 engine work price

Ok so I have some 6.0 issues
First I have a #7 injector gone
The exhaust split pipe behind turbo split
Stand pipes
Dummy plugs
Egr delete
New oil cooler
Exhaust manifold gaskets
Turbo cable cleaned
Coolant filtration kit
Oil filtration kit
2- new glow plugs
New coolant
Synthetic oil
Tuned up 4600.00 takes in for parts and labour
1 year warrent

Is this a good price for this much work?

$3600 gets me a stc fitting updated, arp sruds, stand pipes, dummy plugs, egr delete (i supplied part), new oil cooler, new coolant, and new oil.

Id say 4600 for everything you mentioned is pretty good price, id jump on it quick.

Not to mention who ever is going to work on it is also supplying an injector, glow plugs, coolant and oil filter kits, egr kit also. That it self is $1000+

Just be sure they are reputable, and have done this before or all that 4600 will end up costing lot more with repairs.

IMO, $4600.00 is WAY too much.

I think that's a bit much, though I'm not surprised.

My very quick math (correct me if I'm wrong) has about 2000 in just parts and fluids.

So that would leave 2600 to labor which maybe about 125/hr for 21 hrs(ISH)

There are a couple things wrong with this bid:
Nothing mentioned about a coolant flush
Nothing mentioned about which injectors or just the one replaced
I'm not sure what a turbo cable is?

I would just do it myself but I know that's not practical for many people. Best of luck. Don't be afraid to asked questions, it's your hard earned money. Make the shop earn it and never trust what they are saying. Make them back it up with facts. I have a pretty good life rule when it comes to stuff like this, If they can't exactly explain to you the issue and the solution, then they either don't know and are just making stuff up or are trying to be deceptive. A good knowledgeable, worthwhile tech will be able to explain to you what exactly the issues and pit falls are. If they can't, they don't get 125/hr.

It's a 20-25 hr job (book time) for head gaskets if that helps any.

I was quoted $4300 for new head gaskets and studs and oil cooler change, egr delete, and flush. Anything else added to that was basically just the price of parts since 90% of the labor is removing the cab and heads. Once there everything else is pretty much already done.

But yours includes ARP's. If OP's included ARP's and OEM HGs then I would be like, "DoEt!". But it doesn't. Did I miss something?

I stand corrected, i read to quickly. Missed he didnt say studs or head gasket work. Nvm then. Back peddle, back peddle. 4600 too much. What OP listed is semi bullet proof.
