I imagine it would be close to $200. I forget the price of the piston but the labor is the tough part. Unfortunately it is likely one would normally need to remove the valve body to guide the flexible pin into the cup of the band. This can be seen with the VB removed. With experience and some tricks of the trade (heavy soluable grease used to support the limp probe) it can regularly be done without removing the pan. I am not sure what we would charge for labor as doing the job with VB removed is probably worth 4 hours labor. We probably estimate this quantity and then charge a couple hours if we are successful from the outside (which probably takes less than an hour).
