I will need the 8th digit of your VIN so I can get the correct torque specs for your engine

Book gives about 2 labor hours but you know how that goes, something always seems to go wrong and makes it take longer.

Is it just a side job thing or you at a repair shop? Most shops charge average of around $80 an hour, so that would be 80 x 2 hours = 160. If your just a backyard mechanic doing side jobs may want to charge a bit less, just my opinion. $50 an hour isnt bad at all so hey if it takes 4 hours then no problem. If you do it in 2 hours and quote 4 then it would probably be unfair then. Kinda an iffy situation I guess.
