Labor Prices

Does $900 sound cheap for labor on gettin' the EGR delete and head studs put in? Also... I heard a guy today that said the way he does the studs is takes the grill and radiator off and goes in through that way to do it. Can you do it that way?

Oh ok, cool. I had a feeling you could do it that way I just wanted to make sure before it happened that way. The guy seemed legit too.

Alright. Yeah, he told me the dealership price would be a lot higher cause of tax and all of that stuff.

Ok, that's a good thing cause I wasn't sure what labor would be for those things. He seemed like he knew what he was doing too.

Mine is at the dealership right now...I had a bed plate leak so they had to pull the engine under warranty(which runs out in 20 miles lol)...

Since the engine is already pulled they are installing my ARP's and black onyx gaskets for 1298.00

That includes a new intake gasket which is like 120.00 and they sent the heads off to a machine shop to get them tested for flatness/leaks etc...

Make sure you get the heads to a machine shop if you are going to do it...if your heads are at all warped and you dont notice it...you are gonna have to be doin it all over again very soon...

Just a reference for price...hope it helps ya

Yeah it helps, thanks. I didn't even think about that. It's a good thing I got reminded to pay attention to that. So you factory heads are gettin' checked? I don't think my heads are warped, if they were I'm gettin' the studs put in... The guy I talked to seemed like a pretty good guy and seemed like he knew what he was doin'. Maybe he'll tell me if my heads are warped and let me know if anything's wrong.
