$150-$200 shop ( which might recommend you change your water pump also), $50 friends, $Priceless to do it yourself.

If its something that will take YOU more than 4-5 hours, id definitely pay someone $20-25 an hour to do the work. With this weather being 85 degrees at 9pm on average, and when you run into a problem(which there is almost always a problem when working on cars) and if you have the money, it just doesnt seem worth it in my opinion

find a covered drive way, do it on your day off, timing B and D series motors are a cake walk, but like in a prev post. also change your water pump, taking your time it should take a few hours.. with a DIY or your car manual i give it a 2/5 difficulty

omfg, I only had to pull a lower timing belt cover and my balls were deep in sweat, this was around 5pm with a fuckin big orange fan you can find at home depot and with a carpool. FUCK THIS HUMIDITY.
