Gasket kit for the $260 and $360 Victor HS54629 Engine Cylinder Head Gasket Set

The "S" with the V8 is 26.5 hrs .

Gasket kit will be around 80us each head gasket .

Will check what the set cost and get back to you.

Valve cover set will also cost you around $80us all this can be found on Ebay.

At a dealership you could be up to $3200 to $4000 just in labor .

parts up to $900 to $1300us.

At a local repair shop that has experience with this vehicle will call around $85us +per hr.

Need further assistance then please get back to me .
