Well, my mech only charged me $700 for installation and then for a completly rebuilt 2.8, bored out, with high proformance pistons, rods, lifers etc... was $1375. Then he added some extras such as, water pump, oil pump, oil sending unit, all new hoses, oxygen sensor, power steering line, and a few other things it ended up coming out to a tad over $2700. Oh, since he had to use the top peice (thing that says 2.8), the injectors, the intake manafold, and the valve covers from the old motor he steam cleaned them and painted the top piece red, the intake manifold and the valve covers silver and the block and oil pan red, so it looks very nice and almost everthing under my hood is brand new with alittle more kick! So it was money well spent in my opinion! But that gives you a look at what was all done. Sorry for the lenth!
