Ridiculous Ford quote

So my initial quote from Ford to do my cams was 600 which I thought was reasonable. I got this quote about a month ago and now have the money so called back to get it underway. Well 4 messages and 3 blowoffs later and somehow we are up to 16, yes SIXTEEN hours and over 1000 dollars. Probably do the cam swap 3 times in that amount of time!

That's crazy. Ford factory time is 4.0 hours for both and customer pay time is 5.3. Even at our local (Denver) Ford labor rate of $125 per hour, that's still $662.50. Time to shop around. Good luck.

A day and a half to swap cams? Capt. Hook could do it faster than that! Is that a quote from Bud Clary Ford?
Heck at those prices, it's worth it to take the hour and a half to drive into Spokane!

It was indeed Gaurd. Dropped it off today at the guy who did my engine replacement in my old mustang. He looked at the engine bay and said "Hell this will be cake compared to the 5.4"

500ish to do the swap and to swap my diff fluid

Video distorts the sound quite a bit actually. Kind of a bummer because it sounds great.

Haha .. "set to idle at 0 RPM for maximum lope and running catless, so I don't need oil."

I save so much money with it! Vmp tune misfired under hard acceleration so I sent an email to Justin. I might need different axlebacks though. It had a good amount more volume increase than I expected.

I have hot rod cams, headers, o/r H , and sss adrenaline axlebacks from lethal performance. The sound is phenomenal. I highly recommend that setup. No drone, fairly civilized in the car, and sounds nasty from behind. I also had an issue with a misfire after a bama tune. After a phone call and a new tune she pulls harder than ever.

And that quote is insane. I did mine myself in 3 1/2 hours in my driveway and i had never previously changed cams on a 3v. Those people are crooks.

I would make that point to the service manager or gm. Those would be the people who actually care about the revenue lost because of their greed.

Well a little update. Sent some logs off to Justin, hopefully they have what he needs. In other news I took the plunge and bought a set of stingers from AM. Can't wait to get the car running right though.
