I'd budget 16 hours and hope they get it swapped out quicker than that. The wildcards in engine swaps are the things you find that are worn out and you should go ahead and replace while you've got everything torn apart - like engine mounts, exhaust manifold bolts, O2 sensors, etc. Most of the time those things aren't just sitting around the garage or shop and need to be picked up at the parts store or ordered and that chews up a day or two. Also be sure you have the proper coolant and the right quantity, distilled water, 7 quarts of oil, some assembly lube, etc.
If you can get the original engine out and inspect items like those above and get them ordered the new engine can go right in with little wasted time.
Too bad your XK didn't come with the QDII - kinda surprised it got the QTII given that it's a Hemi Limited...
