I just got this from elsewhere, it prolly gives a more accurate reflection on the price of parts including the EGR valve, it won't make you smile, but I hope it helps.

A new Garrett turbo alone is over 1000 and the car will also need a new intercooler, modified turbo oil feed pipes, Mk ll Pierburg EGR valve (280) and a new catalyst as it will have been contaminated with oil. Ancilliaries plus 100% synthetic oil will come to a further 100 or so and labour will be about 324. I would have thought that the bill should have been closer to 3000 if the job had been done properly.
