Can't estimate with out knowing how much damage was done. On some cars with interference engines, the valves bend and a replacement head is needed. On some cars, the pistons are damaged and a replacement motor is installed. --- A used motor should be around $1250-$2000 installed. It could be more - that is a real rough number. --- Assess the damage and get real estimates from your local shops

The 2008 Mazda CX 7 Sport has a 4 cylinder 2.3L engine that has a timing chain. it's a Ford Duratec L3-VE or L3-DE...what happened exactly that made you think it broke? Are you confusing it with the serpentine drive belt?
