The standard labor time for both headgaskets is 9 hours...

Most mechanics can do it faster and if you replace everything you should I'd guess it would cost closer to 1300. You said 500-1000 so should I assume you are only going to do one? If you are doing it as "preventative maintenance" then I'd strongly suggest you replace both headgaskets, both crank/rod seals, the tensioner and all pulleys, water pump, valve cover gaskets, intake/exhaust gaskets etc

If you are considering to do lower compression pistons then you should grab some new bearings and rings while you are at it.
