Side job EGR delete price

I have done a couple through my friends for free, and word of mouth kind of passes and a couple people are calling me to do them on thier own truck. They are purchasing a delete kit themselves.It takes me about 9 hours to do myself with hand tools on the farm, So its prolly longer than a dealer.What would be a decent price for all parties?

What's your time worth to you and what are you willing to do the job for? That's what it comes down too.

You also need to figure what it is worth to the "customer."

I think the EGR delete would be about a 4 -5 hour job at a professional shop. So, to be fair, under 400 bucks would be my guess.

Yeah, not trying to get rich off it. I just didnt know how many hours a shop shop banks on it. Thanks for the response.

9 hours to just delete the EGR cooler?
Way high considering the typical oil cooler service, which is more technical and more work, runs 10 hours.
No way in heck I would pay someone 8 hours to do just an egr delete.

I have to steal this logic from another poster, If they cant do it and you can, that is what the charge is for....

Now you've helped me with your knowledge of the PSD and Ive helped friends for free and friends have helped me, a little beer goes a long way !!!

But, Capitalism is finding a niche and filling it So really it is up to you

Honestly I am more willing to help just to help but a judge in character on the person recieving the help should also be a factor, just my opinion, hope it helps

Ah ya....
9 hours to remove the intake, turbo, etc etc etc (the whole top of the motor)
Call any shop and ask them what the book time is for removing the intake...
Mitchell on Demand is pretty spot on.

Intake does not have to be removed completely. So, ah NO.

You can remove the old EGR cooler without taking off the intake manifold?
That must be a royal pain in the a**.
I applaud you if you can...

I guess I am thinking since the oil cooler should be replaced at the same time...
