To get a more useful idea on price you can go 3 different routes, 1. price out all the parts yourself and do all the work yourself 2. Ask for a turn-key price at a shop and let them source all the parts for you. 3. A combination of 1 & 2.
lol dude I was just curious because I was talking to a guy that swapped a 540 V8 and it costed him a fair bit.
