Hi

I was wondering how much did you guys paid to have pistons and rods installed for a turbo project???
here in Canada i phone a shop and there were charging 1500$ with borering not including the parts
I think i will contact mwr to see if they could do it cheaper..

What does turbocharging have to do with it?

$1500 sounds fair to low. Keep in mind they need to pull your motor for this job and completely dismantle your engine.

it all depends on the project, i usually charge 1000 for puling an engine and install it again, i charge another 800 for engine assembly including checking all clearances and tolerances. if im doing everything then i usually mark things down a bit, but thats just labor rates.

if you want pistons and go with anything other than Mahle, then you need to sleeve the block. which is another 550 plus the sleeves (aprox 320). stock rods will support 400HP so those are not a necessity

^^ change the rods definatly. He was assuming you had a GTS. GT rods will snap like toothpicks.
