2002 cracked head gasket repair cost

Anybody have any suggestions on what it should cost for this repair? My guy estimated $1500. Thoughts?

$1500 to replace a blown head gasket? You sure he didn't say you had a cracked head where $1500 to replace an entire head would be slightly more reasonable? Heck you can buy a complete head for less than $1000 and I've actually seen freshly rebuilt complete heads ready to install for $500. A couple hours labor and it's in.

When you have a choice, buy American.
