IDK you'r wrenching "skills" but you could cut that bill in in 1/4 if you do it yourself. Check out the 6.0 boards, there's TONS of info on it.

My wrenching skills are good but i really dont have the shop space to do it. And of course this stuff happens during the winter months.

As far as the price...he has 4000 in parts and 4400 in labor.

Is he replacing the heads or something? Fire ringing them maybe, new valves throughout? Your HG's are blown for sure?

Actually, what kind of EGR delete is he trying to sell you? If he's charging $100/hour for labor, that means he's gonna take 44 hours to do the job . Sounds like you should go shopping

My bad, I didn't see the link . It still seems like a lot of labor, even if they're pulling the cab . I don't really know what they're talking about 'polishing' the heads. Port and polish, or just cleaning the surface? I can't view FB stuff here at work

How many miles do you have on the truck? I don't know that I'd worry about the radiator cleaning, personally. I agree with the use of OE HG's though, not Black Onyx

Looks milled to me too. Maybe that price isn't as bad as I thought, for the extensive work they're doing. Whether or not ALL of that stuff needs to be done is up for debate IMHO
