Default How long should a thorough PPI take?

I know this may seem silly, but an honest and complete PPI should take how long? WIth and without compression testing? Lastly, what are most people being charged? Just curious all, thanks for any and all responses

I just 375 for a PPI. They charged me 99 an hour. With leakdown it was just under 4 hours.

Shoot a 4-wheel alignment. I is not typically done on a PPI, but the alignment shop is my first stop when I am checking a car - even inexpensive ones purchased for or by my children. A surprising number of cars in the used market have collision damage corrected by only cosmetic repair. A bent frame is far more of a deal killer than a bad leak-down test. Leaky cylinders can be fixed.

/\/\/\/\/\ I am actually going to have the alignment done when they put on the new suspension in a week I actually already have the car, I just want a complete checkup for the car for piece of mind.
