I dont know what the hourly rate is in your area, but for the head gasket, the book shows 7.2 hours.
And the water pump shows 4.2 hours.
Part of the water pump time should be reduced because the timing belt has to be removed for the head gasket job.
I would guess about 9 hours should be acceptable.
If you have a labor rate of $85 then the labor charge would be $765.
Expect another 200 300 for parts
