Thumbs up

I am thinking about buying the APS turbo kit and just wondering what the installation cost would be? I know it won't be exact but i would appriciate a estimation on this.

Thx for any advice.

I would guess around $3,000.

Why so high? It is only a 12-15 hour job? I would guess more like 1500

Because all the shops around my place charge a freakish amount to install APS stuff, or do anything for the Z in general.

That's why I go to California . . . .better service, more knowledgeable shops, better prices than here generally.

You have a twin turbo though which is much more involved to install.

Yeah, I didn't think the cost difference would be THAT much . . . I never asked for a quote with installing the ST kit however, so my info is totally off-the-record.

Sorry about that.

12-15 hrs

I have personally installed both a single and a twin APS setup. while the single is less time consuming, it is at least a 20 hr job, and probably more like 25 hrs. there is only one turbo to mount, but you are still messing around with the manifolds. routing the extra piping, molding the heat shields and installing and wiring the oil pump are all time consuming as well.

Out of curiosity, when you did your installs did you drop the motor out or did you do it all on the car?

I am simply passing on information... Others have stated 15hrs as being a good number.
