Have a look and see if this is what your needing .https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/104923897/Labor%20time%20Aug%2018.pdf
Im here if needed,
Im my area they are getting $125 per flat rate hour and they may very a little in your area depending on there market.
Im in Az so to know the rate in NC you are going to need to contact your local Cadillac and ask what the shop rate is. Unfortunately I have no way of knowing that. They will tell you when you call them. The part number and part pricing is there factory pricing and most will mark that up about 25% .
The cam adjustment should be included with the timing set repair.
That would appear to me that they are trying to double dip you, anytime the timing set is replace all adjustment should be included .
I would show then the labor times standard I sent you and ask them why any adjustment are considered a separate repair and then ask them to show you that on the label standard list. Its not there for a reason.
What are you referring to when you say labor standard cost?
I sent that to you , in case you missed that link see it again in the link below These are the labor standard pricing time for this repair.https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/104923897/Labor%20time%20Aug%2018.pdf
Its the industry standard Motor Manuel Labor pricing used by the entire automotive industry. I can not download the complete manual and when you print up the labor time its only shows the hours involved. This is for the CTS and should match any time standards they use as well.
Most shops are going to use the Sever service standard time. Is that what your needing ?
The only ones that apply to yours is the time for the 3.6.
The 9.7 is the correct time to do the complete job . I assume the 6.9 would be if you where only doing one or the other and there going to do both so the time you need is the 9.7.
I think we have covered everything that I can think of and your very welcome and I thank you as well.
