I paid about the same for mine in Quebec but I had to take it out of the car at the pick'n pull which wasn't that fun without my air tools. It took me pretty much an entire day.Canada too. I got my B6284T at a wrecking yard for $250 canadian bucks. I had briefly considered an LS based truck engine swap, but to get a good one (5.3 aluminum block) would cost a lot, and they're not without their problems. Plus having a turbo inline is as God intended.
