the cost can vary widely depending on who does the work and where you get the new motor from.backyard mech.vs. shop or dealer/new engine vs.junkyard or crate moter etc. i would say the cheapest price would be 1600.00 to 2000.00 and the new motor installed at dealer would run 3 times that.Also hows the tranny?
