The quote is about $800 too high in my opinion.

You won't need a timing chain as they are rarely, if ever, replaced on M103 and M104 engines.

If you call around, most mechanics do a head job (with valve guides and valve seals), send the head out to be surfaced, and replace the head gasket for between $1,200 and $1,400.

My mechanic did mine for $1,400, and my engine is the 3.2 liter M104 engine which is more expensive.
