Default Turbine cost

I was charged $225K for a spare turbine marine turbine.knowing what I know now-there werent any new parts in that spare.On the flip side-PPS rebuilt both my grenaded tubine marine turbines for less than half that cost and can answer any questions about them or any part used in the rebuild.
