    My labor guide says with transfer of parts and engine removal and refitting it takes approximately 24 hours which seems high to me. Cost of the engine would depend on where the engine is sourced, whether it's new used, reconditioned and what kind of warranty comes with the engine and the work carried out.

    we did an engine recently on '06 BMW X3 with a 50K used engine, 6 month/6000 mile engine warranty, new radiator,
    wpump, hoses, reservoir, stat, belts and idlers (30 hours). about $9000 plus tax.
