    What is their hourly labor rate? Price seems a bit high for that.

    I listed the price of the parts (ballpark figures). Parts (not including gaskets) comes out to ~$1750. Figure another $50-75 or so in new gaskets. You're either not paying $350 flat rate for the installation, not paying $400 for the ECU reflash, not including all parts on your list, you mistyped 3500 instead of 2500, and/or they are overcharging you significantly on parts.

    You're getting overcharged somewhere...they must be marking parts up a lot.

    You should get in contact with fast tuning products. He's a vendor on the forums here with unbeatable prices. Get all your parts from him then bring it to the shop. You'll be saving more money that way

    Oh...you said flat rate of $350 for installation, which insinuated everything was getting installed for that price, which is in fact, not true.

    free, because all of these things are easy to install at home

    ........CT Tax....6.35%........0

    .......TOTAL. ....2129....


    Fixed.. That's more reasonable prices. I'm sure I could get even cheaper prices on all of the parts through a vendor, but those were just the first prices that came up on google.


    And honestly.. you could get 95% of the performance here for less than $1000 total.
