Have everything to delete... how long am I looking at?

Just got quoted $800 to $1,000 for installation of full exhaust, complete egr delete, and installing my XRT and CTS with a windshield mount and an EGT probe. This sounded a bit high to me but was wondering the time it would take to do it? It may be a smokin deal and I just don't know it.

The shop said they would work with me however they could, and they have done work for me in the past at a reasonable rate and high quality of workmanship and service.

Any input from you guys would be greatly appreciated.

2013 F250 Lariat CCSB, Carli 2.5 Level w/ 4" blocks, 5100's, Air Lift bags, Retrax Tonneau, Husky 26k 5er hitch.

Dam that's good money for that amount of work....if ur the guy doing the work! Tuner and exhaust can be on in 2 hrs taking your sweet time. Egr delete 5ish hours taking your time. If you have some mechanical aptitude save your money...and do it yourself... That's my 2 cents

Exhaust and tuner are a lot easier then you would think. Can't Comment on egr.

Tip for the exhaust - unbolt the hangers from the frame (8 bolts or so) and then take off the mounts with the dpf out from under the truck. Made it much easier.

Guess I forgot to mention that I would do the work myself except for having sold our home and living with in-laws until we build or buy another. Oh and my tools are tucked in the back of a storage unit.

Being homeless sucks!!!

I may call a buddy and see about using his shop and tools though.

Just did mine today, under 2 hours to drop exhaust and install full system. Do your self a favor and unbolt the hangers instead of trying to slide them out of the rubber mounts. Way faster!

Yup, I did mine today too. took me 3.5 hours with beverage breaks. I did NOT unbolt the hangers first. It would have made a huge time difference.

I'll be doing mine later in the month when I have time free from work... completely agree with everyone above...DIY!!Me personally, I wont tackle anything extensive that involves pulling/opening engine or tranmission, but DPF and EGR are pretty much plug and play. I've got access to a lift on the base I'm stationed on but even that's not needed.. just gives a bit more room to work with. As far as the EGR, I'd play with the bolts on the manifold before you actually start deleting. They can be a pain to get off and alot of guys on here have plenty of stories of them snaping off half way out. I pulled mine out one day after a long drive, while the engine was still hot and they eased out fine. Every few weeks I do the same until I do my delete. Beter to have one break off before you pull the DPF and get stuck with a partially dismantled truck... just my .02$
