Default Another Dealer who will install stage I

I thought I start a topic with a positive slant.

I've had my stage I kit for about 3 months. I asked Medved Chrysler here in Denver Colorado about the kit. Jarred, the service manager had not heard anything about it. He promised to get back to me 'tomorrow'. He did. Quoted me $600 for the kit and installation in my automatic GT. It took about 10 days for him to recieve the kit, and he had my car one day for the installation. All went well. I couldn't be more pleased.

He also believes the Stage I kit has a Chrysler warranty (I haven't told him different).

I guess you are going to make me look up the invoice and break the charges down. Turns out it was less than $600.

$365 for the kit ($428 list, Automatic)
25 for tax
180 for labor (2 hours)
$570 total for Stage I and labor
23 for oil change
$593 total invoice

I should point out the amount of money I spent was a secondary item, not the point of my message. But since it has become the focus I will comment here in Denver there is no mechanic/dealership/repair shop worth his salt that would charge $54 per hour. Nor could they live on $54 per hour.

Having said that, all of you that can get it installed for $108 ought to jump on the opportunity.

$54/hr? That's almost worth the drive from Seattle [8)]

Or you coulda done it yourself for 3 hours...
Dealers will usu try to rape you.
Mine wanted 500 for the install...let see at 74/hr, that would take them 8 hours to change a set of injectors and screw in 9 bolts for the PCM.
I wasn't born yesterday...but, as long as they don't give you a hard time, screw up the install or try to blame everything under the sun on the Stgae 1 then your lucky. Have fun with it.
