Find out in the May 2013 issue of Engine Builder Magazine. On pages 27 to 38 of the issue, you’ll find an article entitled, Rebuilding the Late Model Hemi Engine Chrysler 5.7L/6.1L which presents a labor cost study.
“While you should never set your pricing directly based on what any of your competition does, it’s always helpful to understand the ballpark in which you’re playing.” ~ Doug Kaufman, Engine Builder, May 2013
On page 28 in the magazine, you’ll find a table showing the “National Average, Median and Mode Labor Charges for Rebuilding The Hemi 5.7L / 6.1L Engine.” This table breaks things down by Head Work, Block Work, Crankshaft Work and Miscellaneous Services. We think you’ll find it interesting.
Take some time to read this study. You may find that you’re under charging for your machine work. Of course, you may also find that you’re over charging.
