So, the valve cover is leaking if I understand this correctly. The valve cover / cam girdle are a single integrated unit. I don't know why this would take more than a day or cost that much. Basically, you need anaerobic sealant for the valve cover, and the timing chain cover gasket set is only like $15. You also need a new camshaft plug, but that's like $2. The only other thing is the valve cover bolts are one time use; those are about $100; but you can get re-useable ARP ones for the same price at USP motorsports.

The hardest part of this is maintaining timing, but really that's not a huge issue since you aren't removing the timing chain. You can do this yourself for about $150.
