The Timesert kit is about $600 and the time is 24 hours plus the time to install the inserts which is about 3 hours.

The rest is the normal things you would do to replace the head gaskets so you need a head set, I do thermostat and water pump. If you want to have a machine shop do the valves and grind the head flat that is another $350 or so.
