What is a good estimation on man hours required to do a head swap at a reputable shop?

Depends on the tech's experience. I usually do the tear down in about 3-4 hrs and clean, put back together clean in about 4-5 hours.

Wow, didn't realize the time involved. I am gonna get a new cam and was looking to see if porting my heads would be worth it. The cost of the porting and the price of labor is giving me second thoughts on around a 20RWHP gain.
