190e 2.3 16v engine rebuild

How much would it cost to rebuild a 190e 2.3 16v engine? Need as much info as possible ASAP as I am interested in buying this car but other offers have been made and the guy wants to sell it quickly. I dont know what blew in teh motor but I know it is blown so I think a complete rebuild is necessary. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

IF the block & head are still OK then expect to spend at least $1000 on parts. IF you need pistons & all new valves then the parts price would more than double to at least $2500!!
Labor from almost any good shop would be at least 35-40 hrs at going rate.

I did one a while back and Doc. is right on. I would budget about 2K in labor and 1-2k for parts.
