I'm showing labor to be 19 to 22 hours depending on if you have all the add ons like and oil cooler, and cruise control.
Around here, $95 is a common labor rate
so that would be 1800 to 2100 in labor.
Then you have to figure in the cost of the engine and extras like antifreeze, oil, belts, mounts.
And PS, your comment about your 2000 being old.
My NEWEST car was made in 1985.
I hope this helps.
