Title transfer and registration costs in Texas

Can anyone shed light on what approximate costs are for a title transfer from a private citizen and registration of a 2006 Ford E350 would be in Texas. Canít find how they calculate the fees - best I can figure it is 80% of vans blue book! Also, how long should it take. Trying to drive the van to Belize without spending fees in Texas titling and registering, but donít want to have trouble at Mexican border with temporary registration and title in the previous owners name. I do have a notarized letter from previous owner giving me permission to drive in Mexico (even though I own the van with a notarized sales slip) because the title is in his name. Sounds complicated, would appreciate any insight and advice.

There are some fees, $35 I think plus registration which is $50-$70, but then there is the 6.25% sales tax based on 80% of book value or actual price, which is the biggest part of it.
Here is their value calculator:

If it were me, I would register it instead of using temp tags and not having title in your name, trying to leave the country with it. Might get hassled a bit more, border patrol might suggest its stolen, but I havenít really ever driven over the border since I was a kid.
