1998 Ford F-150 Question: If the vacuum operated actuator on intake is bad, how much to replace?

My 98' Ford F 150 4.2 was given newly rebuilt/shaved heads as one was cracked beyond saving.
In the process the Vacuum actuator located on the intake plenum was vatted while still attached to the intake itself and ruined (I’m pretty sure.) This has caused severe problems running the pickup to say the least.
First of all, how much to run a diagnoses on my ford?
Second, if we find the vacuum operated actuator is in need of replacement, how much to pull the intake and replace said part?
Third, how quick a turn around on repairs of this nature?
Thanks for your time and Consideration,
