labor cost hours does it sound right?

had my intake, exhaust and headers installed this week. Total charge $560 for everything.

I have a lil question does 4.5 hours for the intake sounds right?

Also, 3.5 for headers and 2.0 for muffler? I was quoted different hours somewhere else but I just want to make sure if this sounds right????

I've taken apart the OEM intake and reinstalled it in less then 2 hours,now I doubt that an aftermarket takes over twice as long.

That sounds like a fair deal to me. I paid just over $500 to have my Porsche Sport Exhaust installed at the dealership.

We agreed to 4 hours at $125 per hour (thier normal rate is $160 per hour). According to Porsche's Tech Bulletin it should have taken about 3 hours (that's all Porsche gives for warranty work).

Since this was the first PSE they have done on the new 987 Boxster, it took them closer to 7 hours. They ran into a couple of problems.

That sounds about right...

Imagine Auto quoted me 3 hrs for the intake and 2.5 hrs for the exhaust at $95 / hr ( $522.50 total )

I have heard that the CAI is a real pain in the ass to install. So could take that long.
