Shop Time to Replace Engine Mount

Can someone kindly tell me what the shop manual calls for, time-wise, to replace the engine mount? Buddy of mine is telling me we can do it in less than an hour in his garage, but neither of us has the time and I want to get it off my plate.

I'm just trying to gauge how much labor cost I can expect.

although I can't speak to book time, I agree that its about an hour job for any decent shop.

Max, 90 min.

The quotes I got to replace my engine mount were 2.4 hours labor, right about $400! That was also at the same time as replacing the waterpump and thermostat, which are right by the engine mount. The labor should have only been about half an hour .

I did all the work myself. The estimates all were for $1400 - 1500 labor. I took the savings and bought a Quick Jack.

I've done it at the track in less than an hour between runs. Not hard, 2 person, 4 beer job (but not if the track is hot).
