I agree. Their deal is excellent, but my problem would be getting the car to them and back at a reasonable price.

$800 for labor plus the cost of the kit $155 will get my subframe fixed if I take it to the shop?

If so...

I would consider 2k. I had the head removed and sent out to be cleaned up about 3 years ago. I might be able to get close to 1k for that alone.
