Unless there were a whole lot of issues, $5,000 is crazy.
I did mine as you said, one day per engine. You should have a discussion and a break down of the costs. You'll be doing this again in 4years if you're in the salt and you need to understand what went wrong.

I did my own and I bet I could have done them both in one long day. 2 days tops. Unless they pulled all of the exhaust hoses and exhaust elbows and inspected them all. But even then it is only another 4-5 hours.
