I wanted a certified GPS to replace the one I did have installed. I also had Mode S and Intercom fitted, a load of old stuff ripped out plus new panel work and a new garmin G1106 indicator. Labour costs are pretty variable, obviously thats the bit you can not estimate that well, but usually the avionics shops will estimate time for wiring looms, fitting the parts in, cables, plugs, screws, etc. 10hrs upwards I guess, the quotes I got the labour rates were about 45+ per hr so 500 +vamp, or more for labour.
In my view whats important is to go to someone with personal recommendation and perhaps who's work you have seen.
Get a few quotes.
