shops charge a minimum of $900; i paid $1050 to get mine done. that was at about 107,000 miles. now the car is at 157,000 and we're doing a split-port swap from an 01 v6. when i had the gasket job done 5 of 6 cylinder gasket sections were blown and my shortblock survived 3000 miles with the engine this way prior to the repair.
