that really depends on where you get the motor from and how complete it is, also if you are doing the swap yourself or having a shop do it. but heres a break down as i see;

if you went with a whole swap from a website such as Hmotorsonline.com,

complete changeover - 2200.00, shipping to a residence -350.00, a new oil filter and 5 quarts of oil (depending on what kind of oil you use) roughly 10.00, you also need radiator fluid - roughly 5.00, your going to need a few quarts of 10w30 for the tranny so thats like 3 dollars. some brake fluid for bleeding out your clutch slave cylinder - 2 bucks, add in a few more dollars for wire loom and butt connectors. you would probably be looking at around 2,570.00 but of course this is ESTIMATED. you are also going to want a few extra dollars laying around for trips to the junkyard, not every motor comes perfect, i had to find a new tps sensor and they also sent me a wrong axle one time.

If you peiced together your own swap;

ls longblock roughly 800.00
ls tranny roughly 650.00
ls ecu anywhere from 50-150
shift linkage is usualy around 50-75 dollars
axles brand new are like 60 a side, from the junkyard maybe 20-30
mounts can add up quick, so if you can get a ls long block with all of the motor mounts already attached. but if this isnt so, from the dealership the mounts can be pretty damn expensive.
your also going to need a clutch seeing as how the tranny and block arent assembled, stock clutches are pretty easy to find but if you already have the 2 seperated you might as well go ahead and upgrade so you figure about 350-400, figure around 750-800 for the clutch & flywheel combo, if not a stock flywheel can be found for 15-20 bucks.

this is really harder to add up than the swap mentioned from hmotors, if i were you, save yourself the headache and go ahead and buy the whole swap complete if possible.
