I'd budget 12, maybe 14 hours, and I'm no speed demon. The problems arise when replacement engine isn't identical to the old one, or your forced to spend more time on swapping electronics to get it all running, which can blow your time schedule. Hopefully you're using same year engines to avoid the headaches with wiring harness and computers. If not the same year, then leave yourself more time.

Thank you
