    this job is very involved and if you have never done one and have no knowledge then you need to let a shop do it for you as you can do a lot of damage if you try it and damage any of the seats or guides.

    the labor is about 16 hours in a shop and the parts are about 350. the machine shop service is about 200.

    add fluids and accessories and it is done.
