Hello

and engine swap on most cars is about a days work so say 6-8 hours of labour

most small garages can tackle this sort of thing so you dob't need to use a dealership and so you'll save on the labour rate

depending on your location the hourly rate will 50 to 80 £ / hour so budget £300 to £600 for the labour and plus another £50 for consumables like fresh engine oil, cable ties and coolant

if you can find someone who'd familar with the car then this will help reduce the time and the cost so shop around and get a few quotes before making your decision
