Default Cost for a full bolt on install? - 11-07-2019, 08:46 AM

Looking for some comparison. I'm here in Canada Ontario and getting estimates for full bolt on install price. Shops here are saying that intercooler, catleas down pipe, charge pipe, and dual air intake is about a 10 to 12 hour job. At about $100 per hour. Getting estimates for 12 to $1,300 to do this.

Here in Seattle area(eastside of lake), 425Motorsports charges $125/hr. They'd do those mods in ~4hr. IMO, 10-12hrs would be if a shop had never worked on a car.

Everything outside of the down pipe is fairly easy to install. Have you thought about DYI?

Lots of videos on how to DIY. The only thing I'd pay for is the ** install. $200-400 max.
The rest you can do with $100 worth of tools and ramps to raise the car for the IC.

I honestly have no experience at all with doing any work on cars. However it would definitely give me a sense of satisfaction to have done it on my own. I'm just kind of a fish out of water when it comes to this kind of stuff however

YOUTUBE. You can do it trust me. Pay to have the ***** installed and do the rest yourself. Save yourself a ton of money for more upgrades.

Default Trust us, easy peasy. - 11-07-2019, 10:06 PM

Like I said in the other post you have regarding this. It's very simple to do most all of your modifications with even $20 worth of cheap tools. Loosen, remove, replace, tighten. VERY straightforward.
If you can mount a flat screen TV on a wall, even crooked, then you can do all your mods you bought (minus C-A-T- d o w n p i p e s) for free very easily. 100's of DIY videos on you tube for your engine. Take your pick.

If you do them yourself. I bet once your done, you will by then feel confident enough to also do the ones you set aside that are more difficult from a beginners standpoint.

Good luck and don't pay more than $300-500 TOTAL for a shop to do your p i p e s or inter cooler.

The FMIC alone can turn into a bigger job than expected. Say a 7.5" vs a stepped 5".
7.5" front bumper must be removed and on some, quite a bit of trimming of plastic for a proper fitment. Perhaps they are quoting thinking they need to remove the front bumper. Bumper cover takes 15 min to remove, but thats beside the point. Lol, What FMIC are you going to install ? Also if car is xi, the pypes are more time consuming as well.
