Dr. Vanos replacement is $380 shipped, $230 after returning my old vanos
Besian Seals are $65

Is it worth it to pay the extra $165 to avoid doing the work?

Oh yeah, and how could we forget the multiple HGH violations over the years
Are you referring to the Seadderall PEDhawks?

Just get the seals. You can do the tear down, have Kalim do the Vanos disassembly and reassembly, you reassemble, done.

I'll remove my vanos unit, put it in my pocket and then teleport myself to Kalim's house!

Yeah, the consensus is, it's not all that difficult to do
