Hello you don't mention which engine this is however being as they are all Vee engines for this model ( 2.7 V6 through to 5 ltrs V8) then the repair times are all very similar the book time is 16 to 18 hours labour depending on if you're replacing 1 or 2 heads as you have to remove pretty much the same amount of parts to do 1 or 2 both heads parts are about £200 for 1 side and an additional £100 if you have to do bothso if you're happy to use a small independent garage then you'll save a lot on labour charges as they are typically £60-80 / hour compared to £150 / hour for a jagaur dealershipso a total will be as low as £1160 and could be as high as £3000 depending on if its 1 or 2 heads and what garage you use
