oil cooler costing- does this sound outrageous??

I e-mailed a Porsche refitting company in the UK-prices in pound sterling (multiply by 1.6 for $) for an oil cooler install on a 71T with 2.7 engine.

dear sir/madam
I currently own a 71 targa which has a custom engine setup. Twin plugged 10:1 comp. 2.7.
The car is still running with original oil tank/system.
Although I am seeing low temps with normal running, I do not want to track it without an oil cooler fitted.
Q) Can you quote for a fender/wheel arch mounted system as per 84-89 Carrea with fan.

A) We would hope to find a good, used system to fit onto your car. Cost for the complete system(sill pipes,thermostat, cooler, fan, mountings etc) might be approx. 600-700 + vat.

Q) I will need a new tank as original is tired- leaks at drain plug bad thread.

A)(700 + vat)

Q)Can you quote for materials and labor to retro fit this.

A) (Make up various bracketry; plumb 2.2 oil system to later tank and cooler etc) estimate 800-1000 + vat

Sounds a bit steep to me???
any thoughts
