Hi guys, I'm new to modding vehicles so I just want to know approximately how much people out there charge for installation costs? Below is a link to a shop in my town and their service rates. All prices are in canadian dollars and I just want to know if they're reasonable or not. Thanks for any feedbacks.

Yea, the CAI seems really out of range; I'm thinking of installing it myself instead or ask a friend to do it. But the others seem quite reasonable, right? Especially the suspension/exhaust/header installation charge.

Even the CAI install doesn't seem to high, considering you have to take out the stock airbox, battery, battery pan, wheel, wheel well, front bumper.
