Hi Im David, thanks for visiting the site. please allow me a few minutes to pull up some information for you to see if they are in the ballpark. thank you.
ok. labor hours for the headgaskets is right around 17-22 hours.
the price for the head work and the labor cost to replace the head gaskets, I cant tell you that information as every shops labor rates are different. here in Pa. it ranges between 70.00 -110.00 per hour.
yes. the engine does need lifted to allow for access to the headbolts
can I help you with anything else?
4-5k seems very high, but you are in Hawaii and I know EVERYTHING is high there. I believe a dealer would be more. call around to some other places and get a few more quotes.
oh wow. then definitely no dealer ... in my shop a water pump replacement would have been total parts and labor, 340.00
you're welcome. please accept the answer and leave a 5 star rating for me. thank you. have a great weekend
