Question What should I pay????

Hey guys,
I'm new on here, but have always found help and suggestions on here. Now I need some, Anyways got a 02 7.3 4x4 and I recently bought forged rods, and b code injectors. What is a reasonable price to pay for installation of rods, head studs, and injectors. I was quoted $4200 for just the labor. Goodness gracious man is that really a good deal? I really only need the rods installed by someone else. What did you guys pay? I would appreciate the help! Man for that price I would try it myself (which would lead to being stuck without a truck for months!) and buy a GT42r turbo!!!

Thanks ,

Sad guy with a garage full of parts

I'll do anything on my on truck just not take my motor out in my driveway with a 11" lift or the cab. Don't have the proper place or tools for that. I might end up trying though.
