Re: 2004 F350 6.0 - Studs, Deleted? You tell me. Pictures attached.
What do you mean by oil cooler upgrade? There is a BPD oil cooler (which is like $2000 just for the kit alone, so I doubt it's that), there is the OEM cooler, there is the OEM with wider coolant passages, and aftermarket coolers (like Dorman) which are crud. Having said that, I can only assume you mean the wider passage cooler. If so, it's really not necessary, and can actually wind up increasing oil temps. Stay away from aftermarket. Regular OEM is fine. However, unless you are having problems with high oil temps, there's no need to change it out.
As for whether it is a good price.....depends on the parts he uses. I could spend anywhere from $400 to $800 on parts alone for that job, depending on what I got. If he's going to be in the $400 range for parts, then no, that's not a good price. I also advocate for anyone who has the ability to do their own work. You come out way cheaper, you know what is in your rig, and you know it got done the way you wanted it.
