    Depends on the shop. For instance, I had a shop quote a good friend $500.00 just to install a new oil pan gasket on his L98 (it was snowing, and we didn't feel like doing it ourselves)....

    Yes, engine needs to be lifted up a tad for clearance, but not worth the money that the mechanic had quoted though. So, we eventually got around to doing it ourselves in his driveway, and he used the money that he saved to by his wife some very very nice things (hint hint)...
