60 hours easy for a complete. 40 hours easy for just the valve grind work. the 993 engine is a LOT more work than even the 964. those damn allen bolts add a lot of cussing to the job. a lot of them strip, the ones through the plastic intake sleeves break, grrrr! you need special cam timing tools because you don't use a dial gauge. i challenge anyone to do a quality top end in 20 hours on a 993, even a 964, hell, even a pre 90 911, which takes about 30 hours. 964s and 993s really should have a complete teardown and reseal, because of all their pesky oil leaks. at least do the through bolt o-rings and cylinder base o-rings when it's down, which will take another 3 hours minimum with all the cleaning required. your quote is fine.
