I found my Lq9 for $1500. You would need at least a nicely built 60E. Gas mileage is actually better with a good tune.

I'd say plan for about $1200 for the engine if you wait around for a good deal and about $2000 for a fully built tranny. I'd say $3500 for everything. You should also think about putting in a cam while you have the engine out.
