Many shops today (including the indy guys) are at 120-160 per hour for labor...

This will boil down to how many hours the shop is estimating it will take them to get the engine out and replacement in.

maybe a mobile mechanic will be half that price..

that said, I looked at a 9-5 motor. doesn't seem very complicated... is this something you just wouldn't try on your own?
