Need your opinion! How much do you think dealer or indy price

To replace the Oil separator hose top and lower and reseal intake manifold, and brake fluid flush?

I've read just the hoses alone up to $2K?

I'd ask for a break down of labour vs. parts. You can often save a bundle usually by ordering your own parts. Some shops won't do install customer supplied parts, but lots of good ones will.

650 is not so bad, especially if he cleans the intake ports and manifold while it's off. Definitely do the valleypan since this is optimal timing. Costs about 70 more in parts. Gl!
