Default Turbo-back and up-pipe install question

Will installing an up-pipe and turbo back exhaust at the same time cut down on labor hours? I'm just wondering because I'm taking my car in next week to the shop and want to get an idea of labor hours.
Please, no flames about why I shouldn't do it myself. I'd rather have it all done right (without exhaust leaks, etc.) the first time.

Oh yeah, I'm also getting an egt gauge installed, any time estimate for that?

Thanks

Default Re: install time

It should save some time doing both, since you have to remove the downpipe to get the up-pipe out anyway. Installing the EGT shouldn't add a lot of time to the process if they're already installing the up-pipe.

Yes, installing both at the same time will probably knock off about an hour of billable labor (hopefully less if the shop has done it before). You have to remove the downpipe to get to a couple of the bolts that hold the up-pipe on. The uppipe will probably take at least twice as much time as the downpipe (2hrs or so, unless they're familiar with your car). I guess the only real way to find out is to call the shop, or take it down there, and ask them what they're gonna charge you.

Do you have a bung in your upipe for the EGT or are you putting it in the manifold ? If you have the bung you will really save time.

yeah i do have the extra bung for the egt probe, but i think it would be better to drill it into the manifold.

thanks for the responses guys
