I payed more than that just for the radiator soo yeah i gues is a great price. Yeah its pretty easy i did themmyself and iam not a expert. Just remeber use distiller water with the 50/50 mix. And make sure u get all the old gasket off. And i was told not to sand the area soo just scrap off. I usrd the stcker remover blade. And be careful not to over tight the water pump and tgermostat housing bolts they seem pretty prone to breakage. Good luck. Not to forget before u install the water pump make sure its blades are in the same dorection like yout old one. Some say tgey come reversed and then your cooling system turns into a heating system. Hehe.
