This is a hard call, because it's quite likely that one or more of the studs
will shear off when the manifold is removed, and that could entail head 
removal and engineering.
If this is the first time anyone's been down this side of the engine, there is 
more than a fair chance that the job will be difficult.  Try and get a labour 
charge ceiling, and go for a warranty on the repair. 

$1300, including parts, is pretty reasonable.
