$2400 may be a tad high but so what...you wouldn't want to have PEP Boyz do it to save a few hundred beans! You'll be all set after this...guides, rails, etc. all sort of has to be done while he's in there and at that mileage. Maybe he could upgrade the oil check valve too in the filter housing...part is like $10 with an hour or so labor to do...if it hasn't been done already. Also, have him drop the oil pan to see if any broken part chunks have fallen down there too.

The parts themselves are like several hundred bucks (actually just under $500 for all the stuff)...as I recently found out; my cars got 135K and is scheduled to get the T-chain come springtime. It only just started to rattle a bit on start-up...you are lucky to get 147K on yours.
