On avg, how long will It take to wire In a LT8?

I can say I am competant In crimping, wiring etc (who Isn't)? But providing I fit the harness with order and wire In the respective sensors, whats a good time length one can achieve or expect?

Also, how long did It take you? Experiences? Sticking points?

Sticking points:

Removal of UIM/TB and gasket removal.
Getting drunk while doing and being lazy.

Don't crimp BTW, solder is your best bet. Don't use tap-ins either, I tried those on a few wires and it just sucked...I ended up pulling, cutting and soldering those.

You want a TIME SAVER? I swear by this thing, auto wire strippers. They cost around 12-15 bucks and strip wires in under a second once you get used to the hang of it...perfect everytime too!

Crimping. I did say that. Thats a violation of Microtech's standards, In terms of Installation. I mean't to say solder In. Anything less, would be punishable by a beating.
