Drywall repair?

We had a foundation crack filled last week, and we need to make good the drywall that was removed. We need insulation installed, the framing replaced (the 3 closest metal studs had to be cut to allow access to the crack) and the drywall installed. Picture attached. No muddling required, only installation.

I'm wondering what you would suggest as a reasonable amount to quote for this work? Your input would be appreciated.

If you do the studs, insulation, drywall, prime & paint both walls & baseboard, about $ 2000.

I'd like to borrow a phrase from Mike Holmes: The worst jobs I've been called in to "rescue" were done by friends. Get at least 3 quotes, even if your friend is doing it.

You say no taping? Only studs/insulation/board? $300
