$590 for the studs, and EGR delete from liberator $600. Labor was my warranty deductable $100. but I blew the EGR cooler, and that was $425 so they credited that toward the delete kit.

Some people are lucky to have good dealerships around that will work with you... I was one of the lucky ones. Others not so lucky and you could spend around $2000-2500 in parts and labor to pay a performance shop to do it for you. This is just a ball park number of course, but it should be fairly accurate. Still well worth it IMO. If you can afford a $2000+ turbo and $1600+ injectors it should be on your "to do list" first.
