just to check some prices

The price naturally depends on what you think is reasonable. I think it
is expensive, but my local dealer want $300 for each piston for my MC
turbo engine. I bought used pistons from one of the friendly listers
here instead, I paid $100 for all 5, plus shipping. I suggest you look
into buying used pistons yourself. As long as they do not have any
damage, they are good aas new. Just install new rings, of course.
