New Exhaust Manifold Installation

I dropped my coach off to my favorite shop in Orlando back in late February prior to my trip to Alaska for two weeks. I had them replace my cracked exhaust manifold on the ISC 350 engine along with doing the yearly engine and chassis PM. The final cost just for the exhaust manifold was Parts = $988.77 and labor was 6 hours = $591.  Add in about $102 for tax and the total ends up round $1681. This was significantly less than what Cummins Orlando had quoted me for the same identical job which was $4950.

After adding in for the complete PM to the exhaust manifold change-out the total bill was $2122.42

Richard,

I assume it was Josam's???   The price for the manifold change was good, their labor price per hour is low. 

There was a Dynasty owner on IRV2 who paid $1200 for parts and they did a flat $2500 for labor, plus tax etc he was approaching $4K.

What is the name of your favorite shop in Orlando?  I’m sure they are cheaper than Cummins in Ocala also and be good to have an alternate shop.

It wasn't Josam's as Barry doesn't do repair work on engines. However it was Barry who suggested i go to Action Mobile not far down the road from Josam's. I have been there twice now and the owner, John, used to own a Class A coach so he is familiar with them. Plus his tech's are top notch guys.

Good to know there's some honest shops out there.

We have had work done by Cummins in Ocala and found them to be overpricing on labor. A long story of our experience. Short is they had our coach for basically 6 mos., 

the end result was radiator, they wanted 9K to replace, have a new one built. I found CCJ in Gadsden AL they put in a new core and shipped it back to Cummins, saved us

6,000K.  It pays to research.
