Hmmmm that is strange, it took me about 3.5 hours to do the install on
mine, but I'm not experienced, had NO power tools (good old foot on the
socket wrench), had to hand hacksaw the old one off in 2 pieces, and never
jacked the vehicle up. Anyway It shouldn't have taken them that long to do
it regardless.... It depends on where they are going to weld it, if they
are putting it in the tip it should be simple, if they are going to put it
right after the muffler they'll have to take the 2 pieces of the system
apart (no cutting, there is a clamp thing), but that'll take longer. on a
side note, my second venturi is sitting on my dresser, looks kinda neat
sitting up there :)
