Stealership at its best

I called my local dealership about prices on

Blue spring
Turbo feed line
Turbo drain tube.

I just called to see if they were reasonable and close to
Tousley

Then I asked for a laugh how much in labor

Guess how much ---- close to 700$

Haha I was very entertained at lunch including my crew members as we all partaked in a nice little Laugh

Since they have to go to the oil cooler to put a new cover on the oil cooler to upgrade the feed tube, might make sense.

Agreed, they have a bit a labor into all that, and while they are in there, you should just have the oil cooler rebuilt, since you're in that far anyway. Its about an 8hr job on paper for the oil cooler, and I'd bet that's what they based that on.

One of the benefits of learning how to work on the 6.0L yourself.

If you have a 2003 style cover the attachment to the oil cooler is different.

The price for the ool feed tube is only half the price if you get it from International. Ford must have a 300% markup on it.

I usually try to check with my local dealership on prices because they've been pretty helpful when I've stopped in, but I can never justify the cost. Even with shipping, Tousley is almost always the way to go!

I normally take note of the Tousley prices then go to my local dealership and ask them to match. Which they normally do. The only item my guy couldn't find is the hard charge pipe to replace the plastic one. Even with a part number his computer wouldn't pull it up.
