Sounds like a decent price to me... only you can answer the question if you are capable of installing yourself. Do you have combustion test equipment ? If not, then even if you do install it yourself, better make sure you can get someone out there to adjust the burner and test it for proper combustion when you are done. You can't just install it, plug it in and go with an oil burner. It ...MUST... be adjusted first! (in fact the same is true with gas)

Peerless

Which model Peerless? If it is the WBV series, I do not suggest using that model in a cold start application.

A far better choice would be one of the European design three pass boilers. Some examples are: Buderus, Crown's CT series, Burnham's MPO, Biasi, & Viessman (sp?).
