Default How much labour for uppipe/downpipe install?

I did a search but couldn't really find anything. I have no garage or the right tools for the job, so I'm going to have to pay to have an up/dp installed. Frankly I'm also scared of all the seized bolts probably waiting in my salty winter-driven car

So the question is, about how much time/labour should I be expecting to pay for someone to install for me? ('02 WRX)

Figure about $80 an hour, and I'm guessing they would charge like 3 hours

Total? In a perfect situation the UP will take 3 hours. On an 02 with rusted bolts it will be longer than that.

Edit: holy crap, how did i end up in this region? I thought i was in general

Shops don't usually charge by how long it actually takes to finish a job, but by how long it should take a mechanic given basic tools.
