I had it done at a local independent shop... was 4.6 hours of labor, presumably because the guy also did the timing adjustments which apparently aren't actually necessary. The car seems a little bit faster every time I drive it, dunno if that's because of the seals wearing in more or if it's all in my head but I like it.
Edit: $450 is about right. The guy I went to charged me $414... he usually knocks his labor rate down a bit but I guess he charged me damn near his usual rate, probably because I was supplying the parts myself. Really makes me wish I had the tools to do all of this stuff myself. Might have to invest in some the next time I need something done.
