Diverter Valve Install Cost

I was just going over some upgrade costs with a tuner, and he charges $270 to install diverter valves. I was shocked, I thought this would be a 10 minute deal. What do you guys pay? Or is it a DIY?

I think that's pretty high. From the write up on the ImagineAuto and EVO website it says it should take between 1.5 - 2 hours. What's the hourly rate at the shop?

Vince,

Is it easy to do?

By the way have you taken a picture of the CSL trunk for me?

It's a DIY if you have an hour or 2 of patience.
You have to take out the intake box and move some other stuff out of the way, but its not too difficult. I would think shops would charge about $150-180 for it.

The right tool and it can be done in 45 minutes. If he is a virgin then it will be 2 hours. I can do it in 20 minutes

Yes easy. You need a really long nose plier to get to some of the clamps. Good hands help as well..
Sorry been slack on the trunk.

"The right tool and it can be done in 45 minutes. If he is a virgin then it will be 2 hours. I can do it in 20 minutes "

so if he is a virgin at 2 hrs.
what does that make you at 20 minutes ?

Took me 1 hour. It is a PITA because you have limited space to work in.
