Got the price quote

Well i took my truck to the shop and took them 5 days (including weekend) to get back to me. He said he needs to replace 2 injectors and would rather replace with new ones because if they mess up it pays for labor to fix it again. He said price is going to be about $1260.00 with labor, parts, and tax. I asked why the labor is so much since both are on the drivers side and he said that its about 5 hrs labor for diagnosis fee and then changing the injectors out. Sound crazy or normal?

Take it back and have a GTG with your local ORG members


It might be reasonable from a shop's perspective, but I cant stand giving someone so much money to do something that is possible to do yourself (or with a little help from others)

8 injectors from Warren are pretty cheap. I would go that route rather than just replacing the two with new ones. It will be a better solution IMO. Also, I'm sure that you could find cheaper labor to install them.

I agree with the doing it yourself route, but it sounds like they are going to charge you 5 hours of labor as it sits. So, it might end up being more cost effective to let them do it for you at this point.

However, I agree with going with the Warren injectors. Buy all 8 and while you are at it go bigger!

I have those, the Warren Stock+. The way I was explained is that they're completely stripped down, rebuilt, and made a little bigger to be basically equivalent to 155's.

Same body as 155s just with a stock nozzle which keeps them cheaper. So I was told anyway. so they flow roughly 153-155 because of the nozzle, I am on the ordering list, they are a little backed up right now. 153-155 sounds perfect for everything else being stock, hopefully going to a PMax/Batmo some day, once i get er paid off that is.

Yeah, they're nice, especially for the price. When I bought my truck last Oct. it had 3 failed injectors and my local shop told me about those. I can say I was pleasantly surprised with the performance for the price, esp when I was looking at getting some 155's from RCD...
