yeah, for the 1200-1600 you could tackle it yourself. maybe someone thats close to you on here will do it and cut you a deal. shouldn't be hard to do if you have any experience as a mechanic. i opted for a new engine when mine went. thats another option. and i still spent only 600-800 and did the work myself
BTW, if you go the engine swap route, be sure to get a 96+ engine as they have the better head design
