Default cost for longblock install?

How much do you guys think it should cost to install a longblock into an 03 wrx.

basically the tech would have to pull the downpipe, disconnect the old engine from the tranny and drop it out or use an engine hoist and pull it up and out.

install new engine, connect to tranny, connect downpipe and done.

i'm planning on having the tech also install a new clutch disk while the engine comes out. most likely exedy oem from subaru.

btw, this will be a jdm version 8. The ecu swap i can do myself as i've had the oem unit out when i shipped it to cobb to have accessecu software installed.

this is a side job and would not be the 105/hr charge that the dealer charges.

for a tech. to do this as a side job you should look at paying around $600. flat rate is ~13hrs.

thats what i would charge you if i were to do it as a side job. and i have done a few of them at this rate.

dropping in a v8 into wrx is a little more than plug and play. if you want to take advantage of the jdm engine you will have to wire in additional cam sensors, avcs solenoids, and charge temp sensor. no?

the engine is said have uncut wiring harness. this will make it easier right? I've also downloaded instructions on how to activate AVCS, that part doesn't seem to complicated.
