I love my truck

Now that thats out of the way...my dealer quoted me right under $2500 in labor for a head gasket/stud job with new egr cooler and oil cooler. Said it would take about 26 hrs. Sound about right?

The amount of hours is dead on, from what I have been told.

The tech at my local ford dealer said 25 hours to do it. He does them on the side.

Labor alone the price sounds about right, as long as they have the reputation of doing the job right. I'll assume that price doesn't include parts.

I would ask them how they check the heads.

From what I've read, that's a pretty standard deal.

I paid $4,700 for studs, oem gaskets, oil cooler and $1,500 of machine work. That was parts and labor. So your labor quote sounds right on.
