Was that heater put in at a dealer? That seams kinda high to me, and I worked at a dealer. It paid 1 hr to put it in, for the starter maybe 1 1/2 hrs labor or 2, and the starter, remove the intake and prop it up and 2, 10mm bolts hold it in, starter about 200 bucks( a good one, not autozone please)
