The engines are replaced in entirety, LEPs and all, so the entire engine clock resets at 1800 - no additional flywheel inspections etc.
Are you referring to TDIs or Austro?
To elaborate, I'm answering the question about what comes with them when you replace the ones on your plane. You don't get a long block and have to swap over all your existing LEPs and continue with their intervals, the entire engine is replaced completely with an overhauled exchange assembly. So the price quotes you're getting for TBO include gearboxes, injectors, etc. The clock resets on all of your engine related inspections simultaneously, not TBO and... like some have suggested.

That puts OHs on these planes back in "pretty reasonable" territory if the price is indeed ~30k/side

Now if I can figure out how to get TVDs and gearboxes to stop failing inspection
