Yes it is expensive. And you don't want it on less its free. And then only if it's super nice. Your looking at a head gasket at the very least.

Run away from this vehicle as fast as you can!! It could also be a burned valve, shattered piston, or thrown (broken) connecting rod. All are super BIG bucks!! HTH. -Jim
