This is a major part of your vehicle which is pretty labor intense. $457.00 is a very agressive price for a head gasket replacement. Labor hours are 5.2 hours which means he is charging you about $50.00 an hour the average shop rate in Atlanta is $85-$100 an hour

It is not a head gasket replacement. Valve cover gasket o-rings and plugs that I would be replacing. This is a Acura Dealer estimate of 2.5 hours of labor & parts of a total of $457.00 Thank you
