that all depends on who's doing the work and their experience etc.

when i did the swap, i pulled the motor at the same time and had an si parts car sitting a few feet away. i took everything from the si, and put it directly on my lx, and no prob.

i didn't have a lift, and i was working out in a parking lot behind a body shop. it probably took 6 hours.

however, when i swapped my motor in my 93 dx, i had a lift and it only took 2 hours to pull, and another 2 to get hooked back up and running.
