Dealership install for CAI

Does anyone know how long it would take the dealership to install a CAI for my 3.7L? Some guys on this site say it takes them 45 minutes and some say 2 hours.
How much do they charge per hour? Hopefully it should only take them 1 hour or so. I can't imagine them charging me $120 or more for the install.

I would like to know the prices before they install it next Monday (28th).

my dealer charges $80 per hour plus tax.

you could do it yourself and install it in an hour. they are pretty easy and come with pretty good instructions.

Yeah, I read the instructions, but I do not have the much experience under the hood. However, I have changed the spark plugs and the coolant in our Altima.

It would be nervous since I have not done any Mods to an engine before. I saved a lot by purchasing my kit through Amazon.com for $215.00 with free shipping.

If you can fill your vehicle up with gas and check the tire pressure then you can install a CAI.

I'm glad I wasn't the only one wondering about this. Being new to Jeep I was beginning to think it was a "secret handshake" or something.

No secret handshakes here - just the Jeep Wave!

Bob123 - you can certainly do this yourself. Just read the instructions and give yourself plenty of time. It can be done in under an hour - but if you need a couple of hours to be sure you're doing it right what does it matter?
