A friend of mine lost his 5.7 in a similar way. Hydroplaned and sucked in water...end result was a bent connecting rod. His was an 04 AWD and around these parts (Newfoundland, Canada) he was looking at around $3000 just for the engine. Not sure if the same is true for your location but i hope this gives you a rough idea on engine cost!
