Well I am 2 years late but a Martin Baker ejection seats cost are not that high even 0-0 seats don't cost more than 200,000$.
I took the following excerpt from MB FAQ section:

"How much does an ejection seat cost?
This is a difficult question to answer – it’s heavily dependent on the type of seat in question as well as the total number of seats ordered, but somewhere in the £100,000 – £200,000 range is fairly accurate as a ballpark figure."

Rated at 23500 appr.
Just to clarify to everyone else, this figure 23500 is in lbf which equates to 104.5 kN approx. For a light weight aircraft, this type of engine would require a slightly larger airframe in order to exploit its full potential. Conversely, using advanced materials, it can enable a much higher payload. How high depends on too many factors that affect the lift to drag ratio.

105KN can easily take it past 1.8 Mach. how much is the wet thrust.. if its around 70KN then this will be a beast of an engine for JF17
