That price for an injection pump is completely out of order. It is about half the price of a replacement new engine complete with heat exchanger cooling, transmission, panel, mounts etc.(also comes with a full warranty). I suggest that you get that confirmed and if it is indeed true, get the pump back from them. There are other companies that do the same work.
