The final cost is determined by what the owner wants to do. It adds up fast if you do it right!

Engine: $100- $300 plus shipping
conversion harness: $125
ECU: 0-$100
5 wire o2 (could be broken) - $120
EGR control box: 0-$150
Fluids and oil filter $50
Labor for install (depends who is doing it) 0-$1000
Timing belt, water pump, and timing belt tensioner: $125+
clutch kit: $150+
flywheel machining: $60
tune up stuff (plugs, wires, cap, rotor, and fuel filter) $150
Thats all I can think of right now..

The mechanical swap is straight forward. The wiring is a bit tricky and takes time. For my swap I converted DPFI->MPFI->OBD1->VX. If you have an HF it wont be that bad.

Doesn't sound to bad at all. I had well over $3000 in my 93 B16a sedan swap and I did it myself. You can see it in my garage.

How does $90 sound for an HF Tranny? Somebody just offered me one at that price but I have to drive about 3 hours to pick it up. The tranny does have about 150,000 miles on it but he's assured me that it doesn't crank or anything.
