    If the dealer quoted 7.5 hours, then every other dealer is gonna quote the same. About the only thing you might save on is labor rates and only if you go somewhere with a lower labor rate.

    Have you thought about looking for an independent mechanic to do the install?

    Install it yourself, there easy, I've done two of them, and they are both still running no problem.

    I think most labor rates between dealerships are the same and the install time will most likely be the same as well. I remember there being a post somewhere where about a parts department displaying a SC with a quoted time for install from Toyota. That would probably be your best bet if you could find a dealer that had that on display, otherwise your kinda SOL.

    That labor time sounds right, but wow that's a spendy hourly rate.
    I'm sure it's the norm there though, so everyone in the area will be about the same.
