Install cost for a regulated return?

How much would it cost to have a standard regulated return installed from driven diesel? Looking to get a ball park figure.

3-4 hours of shop time...

So $300-$400...

Do it yourself for crying out loud.

I was looking at the install instructions and I'm nervous about snapping one of those fitting that go into the head.

I'm not a mechanic. I do my own oil, brakes, and basic stuff like that.

If you cant install a fuel system yourself, you should not have a fuel system.

Its aftermarket. If your out on the road somewhere and something goes wrong, your SOL...

Leave it stock if your not prepared to work on it yourself.

Seriously... so the guy wants to improve on something with his truck and because he dont have the experience or knowledge to do it himself he shouldnt do it?....

so basically thats like me saying if you dont know how to properly fight a structure fire you should live in a tent...... or since u dont know how to write custom tunes for your vehicle you should never run a tuner in case it becomes corrupted and you cant fix it..... quite possibly the most narrow minded and assinine post ive read in quite some time.

Nope... Its from experience... If you want to pay someone to install something as simple as a fuel system, because you are worried about breaking something, then you should not have it period.

I can say with 100% certainty that it will leak at some point, be it a few days or a few weeks after install. You will have to climb up there and fix it. If you can't do it now, you wont later...

i dont disagree with you on that point at all...but maybe if he takes it to get installed and hangs around and learns how it works then he would be more inclined to fix it etc.... i learned everything i know... which is alot less than many on here by watching others and usually getting in their way when it came to my trucks.

Agreed... I would prefer to invite a few friends over to help... Win Win for everyone.

I cant tell you how many times I have gone over to total strangers houses that have PM'ed me and helped them install things in there rigs over the years...

at least 10-15 times...

I dont want anyone to pay to have something simple installed at a shop...

Absolutely.. those of us that are blessed to have friends with the experience and knowledge are just that blessed.... some folks dont have that luxury though... but you can easily make friends from nearby right here on the forums like i have... weve wrenched on many folks vehicles together..
