Rough cost for a shop to do mods as follows

Hi guys I'm trying to price out what I need for getting my mods installed I know what I'll pay per hour just need to know what aprox is a fair time frame. Car is a 2009 e92 auto . Current mods are accessport v3 and bms dci.

Mods to be installed are a er fmic with a Er charge pipe with tial bov and the lower er pipe. N54tumjng DP , and Ngk spark plugs that need gapping. Not sure howl long gapping to .22 takes.

Any aprox time in hours to do all this would be great.

Took me 2 hours to install my front mount on ramps with tons of breaks and a trip to autozone for a wrench and charge pipe will be an hour max (20 min if you know what your doing) I say DIY and save the cash for another mod. Will be well worth it. Oh yea spark plug is about an hour going slow (30 min after the first time) that's to install never gapped before

Down pipes take a while... I've done two sets on ramps in my garage. Not very difficult, but time consuming since you have very little room to work. I bet a shop would bill at least 4 hours for the downpipes. I highly recommend at least DIY for the FMIC and charge pipe. Its very easy, even trimming the 1" worth of radiator shrouding.

4 hours wow.. Didn't think it be that long.. Cost more to install than the actual down pipes... Looks like at 100 a hr I need about 600 bucks or more.. Such as life. Appreciate the feed. Back
