How long does it take a dealer to replace injectors?

I am about to drop off the truck for the injectors to be replaced, but have a trip planned one week from today.

Think i will have my truck back in time?

Personally can do them in 4-5 hours, depending if service writer stays away from me.

When we took the furd in for service about a month ago, they kept it for 3 weeks. It took them 2 days to fix it, but 2.5 weeks to get to it.

It all depends on the shop and how busy they are and how good they are.

It shouldn't take more than 2 days tops if they have injectors cups and fuel line seals on hand

I have the truck and am not dropping it off until they have the parts. but so far they dont have all the parts. I want to leave for my trip with the truck on thursday. They will start on it asap when i drop it off and they have parts. but they said it was a 40 hour job? by the book? i know techs do stuff faster on flat rate but damn thats a big job if its really 40 hours.

are the replacing all 8?
Ive done all 4 on the passenger bank and it only took me 3 hours or so taking my time. Hardest thing IMO is the freaking allen bolts that hold dwon the valve covers.
