why people compare price for install or labor? Its not same as parts.
Part of same brand is always same no matter price.
Quality and experience can differ from shop to shop. I know price should be comparable But do not compromise quality for price.
+Listen to DR.G he knows everything, call any shop tell them DR.G says $500
There's nothing wrong with comparing labour as long as you aren't going to a random shop just because they're cheaper. Often times when you go to a less experienced indy shop the rate is higher than what the experienced local shops would even charge.
I'd rather see someone post asking for recommendations about where to go BEFORE they get the work done rather than posting afterwards and asking for help because they had a hack shop mess up the work and rip them off while they were at it.
Ivo @ Columbus (my goto shop) has multiple n54's roll through the shop on a daily basis and I'm sure RMP does as well. Both places are well known and have a reputation for top notch work.
Here is the average pricing based off of the 3-4 most popular shops:
- ER FMIC - $120
- ER CP + BOV - $60 (if you have a DCI, if stock intake a bit more)
- BMS OCC - $60
- BMS DPs - $200
- BMS JB4 PNP - $60
Comes upto $500 on the dot. You can get a bit higher or lower on any of the items, but it's safe to assume you will fall within a close range of 500.
