I've just had the delight of being stranded after my starter motor decided to die on me.
Just wondering if $450 is an average price for and after market brand new part plus labour for my VZ SS V8
Or am I getting the damsel in distress price??
LS1/5.7ltr = $235+ fitting/labour
LS2/6.0ltr = $245+ fitting/labour
ebay $120 and up
what's the difference between LS1, LS2

I just today got quoted $450 to have mine changed in my VZ too. apparently its 4 hours labour.
Still seems a little steep though!
Is it easy enough to DIY for someone who isn't a complete Revhead?
4 hours to change a starter motor? Can do it in 1. Unbolt the starter form underneath, remove the wiring, unbolt the RH exhaust manifold off the head, lever it up a bit. manouvre the starter out.
Much easier than removing the RH engine pipe and disconnecting the steering linkage.
Oh, and disconnect the battery first.
