The absolute minimum cost of hydro assist is probably about $350, which covers a ram and hoses, and you do everything else yourself (mounting parts, and drilling/tapping your own box).
That still wouldn't include the pump, you can run OEM it's just a bit slow on steering speed. Otherwise you'd want some higher flow pump. I think the 3.8L takes just about any TC series pump (confirm that's true, but that's my understanding).
Based on my experience, I wouldn't recommend AGR. Not a very good company to work with. They respond to emails before you give your credit card, then basically ignore you. The pump I got was faulty and it was hard to convince them to even take a return because they say they dyno test it so it can't be a bad pump. I ordered a drop-in equivalent pump from PSC in the mean time so I wouldn't be down for weeks and it worked perfect, so it was indeed a bad pump. AGR took months to get me the warranty replacement, ignoring most emails and occasionally responding saying it'd go out tomorrow/this week/etc. never actually shipped until I threatened credit card charge back.
