JB4/downpipe/chargepipe install price

Just got a quote for installation on JB4/downpipe/chargepipe for 1k. Seems a bit high. Does that sound like a decent quote or am I getting ripped off ?

I paid $380 for just a downpipe install. Chargepipes are a lot easier to install and I'm sure JB4 is pretty easy as well so $1k seems a little high

For a shop that knows what they are doing JB4 is around an hour to install tops (more like 20 min), chargepipes around an hour, downpipes maybe 2.5hrs worst case.

I tried PM'ing you, but you box is full. I live in Lakeland and can do it for much cheaper than you were quoted.

You could easily do the JB4 and the charge pipes yourself. I would DIY them the same time. With the charge pipes off, it would make it easier to run the JB4 wiring harness. Also did downpipes myself. Downpipes I would recommend a shop to do if you're not too mechanically inclined.
