AU head gaskets are about $70 from ford.
Head Bolts are $5.50 each from ford. think you can get them cheaper elsewhere though.
probably best to ask the bloke who's doing your head work.

oil change with filter should only be about $30 or so - depending on what sort of oil you use.

coolant change is it needs it will depend on what sort of coolant you use. i would imagine someehere around $50 maybe

In all honesty it depends where you buy your bits from.
I've seen people on here pay $180 for a pair of King springs, i could almost buy 2 pairs for that price.
Costs depend on how well you'll get looked after when purchasing.
Head bolts are around $40 a set, but again they will vary place to place.
