Supersprint x-pipe. How long to install?

My x-pipe has just arrived so I need to arrange fitting.
I contacted EMP but they would only give an hourly labour rate with no estimate of hours required.
I am not deleting the secondary cats.
Can anyone who has had one fitted remember how long it took?
Also any recommendations for fitters in the south of England who have experience of installing the Supersprint x-pipe would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Scott.

Hi Scott, I initially had my x pipe fabricated and fitted by Infinity Exhausts just off the Bath junction on the M4. Bit of a drive for you, but recommend them if you need the supersprints welded on.

I have just had Infinity take off the secondary cats and weld straight pipe in and that only took about 40 mins, your job should be about the same length of time?

I was charged an hour's labor to have my SuperSprint installed by an exhaust shop.
