What would it cost to change the timing chain at a shop?

4cly 97 Nissan 200sx

And if I do it myself, Is their anything else I also need to replace? Like the pulleys?

Will check once I'm at work tomorrow as far as labor hours goes. Other than the chain..... Being an older vehicle I'd change any timing tensioners as well as guides if it has those. Sometimes that all comes in a kit

Says around 8.3 hours with power steering.... So decently labor intensive.

If you have a shop do everything I'd expect you would be paying close to 1000 with all fluids and parts and labor. Depending on shops labor rate per hour. It looks like there are 2 timing chains as well. From crank to idler gear and from cam to crank. Per part numbers
