Got a rebuild price

I rang Coventrys today and got a price on a ACL engine rebuild kit for the 5.0l. $930 trade price. Does this sound fair? This is for the complete kit, pistons, gaskets, everything.
Oh and my waterpump sh|t the can today too
What next!


5.0 Litres of Ford injected iron. EB2 Fairmont.
HSV. Can you say WICE?

So I guess that is pistons, bearings, pistons, rings, gaskets, timing chain and maybe an oil pump. Thats not a bad price, 5.0L stuff is dam expensive. What type of pistons (cast/hyper) and standard or molly rings etc.
