PPI Cost

What are you guys paying for a good PPI, I am based in DFW.

Have been quoted $500, is that reasonable?

Cheers

That seems overly expensive! I would want to be starting at $300 max & if something is found that needs further investigation like pulling sparkplugs &/or doing a compression test, make the decision at that point to spend the extra money.

Seems like a bit much. But yes, it depends on what they are doing. Which shop quoted you that?

Does it come with a leak down test for $500? That's a must.

Please give these guys a call:

Fix N Go | the Porsche Specialist

Danny is a Porsche Gold Master Technician with 17 years experience working on Porsches. He will perform a PPI with or without a leak down test for way less than $500.
