Shop for turbo replacement?

Looking to get this turbo kit: https://www.ecstuning.com/b-assemble...5764928990st1/

What’s a good local shop to get this installed at in the Vancouver Area?

i would suggest to phone around and see what each shop charges
if you could post it here after that would be awesome

bigger shops

nixon
CG
Racing Greed
The Speed Syndicate

smaller shops

Stop Stop inc ( mostly bmws and classic sports cars )
Amayak Auto ( mostly european cars )
NR Auto ( cheap all around mechanic that i know did a few turbo replacements

if anyone knows any more shops in the area please chime in

Nixon - $8600 all in for OEM turbos

Racing Greed - 16-18 hrs (~2000-2400 after tax and shop expenses) + $2000 CAD for Vargas Upgraded OEM turbos

CG Motorsports - Only want to do OEM, so similar to Nixon I'd guess?

Onyx Automotive in surrey is good. I've been taking my e92 to them for the past 3 years. They have always been honest and price is always reasonable.

Let us know once you've had the turbo's installed. I am getting the same ones with upgraded thrust assembly and wastegate but same compressor wheel that'll be going in the car in a week or two
