$4,600 for complete high pressure oil circuit rebuild, IPR sensor, oil cooler, new Y-pipe, studs and gaskets. This truck better make it to 300k miles with minimal repairs after that bill.

Quite honestly it depends on your location. The prices seem to range by about $2000 just simply due to location.

If they're doing the studs and have the cab off it should be a breeze to add anything to that process, just wondering the labor cost of doing studs...
