A shade tree mechanic working with jackstands and a hoist would probably need 10 hours to get the engine out and 5 hours to put the new engine in.

Depends on a lot of factors but a rough guide would be 4 hours to swap them

no decent mechanic would take that job, to spend time fitting an engine of unknown quality then finding it doesn't run is not worth it for most people plus your used engine would probably need a new oil pump, cam belt and water pump prior to fitting, which are easily done out of the car but tricky in the car, if it's...

The flat rate will probably be 8 hours... More
