Unless you have head problems thats way too much for just a water pump and head gasket.

Water pumps are a 4-5 hour job and head gaskets maybe as much as 10-12 hours and the two jobs overlap. We currently use MB rebuilt water pumps and they are $99.

If you figure 20 hours at 100 an hour that is a lot for parts.

If it is just the headgasket and water pump, I think it should cost about 2k or so. Be sure the price doesn't include something else.
