Default timing belt replacement cost?

I would like to know what people are paying to have the timing belt & water pump replaced on a SOHC 2.5L engine.

They're going to charge the going rate for labor. Usually they have it posted, it's somewhere in the $70-80 /hr region.

My dealer quoted 5-$600 for the T-belt alone and another $100for the WP. I bought a " NEW" Bosch water pump at PepBoys for 49.95 and an OEM belt for $69.95 or 59.95 and did the job myself with the help of a friend (who has a better back than mine). I also carefully checked all the idlers, oil pump and seals for leakage. I replaced the thermostate, coolant hoses and drive belts at the same time. I used ALL OEM parts except the WP and the complete job was about $190. You mush be machanically inclined to do this job as it is not a good place to practice. Go to www.endwrench.com and they have a file on how to do it correctly.

Pretty much what I have done.
The Bosch water pump is fine after a year and ~20K miles.

I figure it is about 2 hours work for the whole thing. Add in a front crank seal while doing it and check the cam seals before starting.
