Fair Price - Replace Turbo 0-rings

I have an oil leak between the engine and pedestal, has been diagnosed by the stealership. My question is what would you think a fair price is for pulling the turbo and replacing the 4 o-rings? The stealership quoted 400-500, I am going to call around and try to find a local mechanic because 400-500 seams way to much. I would tackle it myself, but I am completely new to the diesel world and would rather pay a reasonable price and have someone who has done it before.

It's $12 in parts and maybe 3 hours of time. The dealer is ripping you off.

400 is probably about right for a dealer to repair it. Its not that bad to do, you should fix it yourself if u think your capable.

too bad you are not closer, i would do it for 200 and change the up pipe gaskets too.
i am in nc.
Its not all that hard to do yourself. I would do the up pipe donut gaskets at the same time.

I live in shelby county AL.

I have been back and forth on doing it myself. I normally do my own work, but this powerstroke is a different monster. You may have given me the courage to just do it!

Its really not bad, the hardest part for me was the clamp holding the uppipe to the turbo, but spray it down the night before with some penetrating lube and its not too bad, the rest is relitively straight forward. Just keep the computer on stand by if you get stuck and you'll be good to go

OK, decided I am going to do it myself.

So while I have the turbo pulled is there anything else you would do? Someone mentioned replacing the up pipe gaskets. Thinking about doing the ccv mod too.
