Exclamation Turbo Pedestal Leak PLEASE HELP!!!

I am towing a 6000 lbs trailer this coming Friday. I took my truck in for a slight leak coming from the rear of the engine. They tell me the O-rings and turbo pedestal has to be changed. Cost $1,700!!!! They say the pedestal alone is $700.

If it's just the O-Rings... the parts are ~ 15 bucks at any Ford Dealer.
F4TZ-6N653-A, F4TZ-6N653-B

And it's 2.4-2.9 hrs labor depending on what you're doing.

Where are you located? We may know someone closer to you that can help you.

I went in to take a look. They said it could handle the tow if I took it easy. Also since now I have a bit more time. I am going to order a Non-EBV pedestal ($150 delivered) and I can spend the time finding someone other than the stealership.
