What drives up the cost is how much of the dashboard that has to be removed plus the disconnection and recharging of the A/C. It took me 8 hrs to do this on an 88 T-bird. I was able to borrow a vacuum pump to pull down the A/C lines before recharging. When I did it to my college beater I decided not to disassemble the dash and instead went to a junkyard to see exactly where the heater core was located. I then cut a hole and slid it out like an 8-track tape. It cost me nothing to do this except for the price of the core. Just a thought if you're handy.
