Labor to install new gearbox?

I believe it would be more like 8 hours.  That is what it took for my boxster.

IMHO I think you were over-charged. To do a RMS you need to drop the tranny and I know they can do that in under 2 hours. There is no difference - just installing a different transmission and a test drive.

RMS takes longer, because you have to take the flywheel off. 2 hours seems unrealistic. I've seen it done in the factory in Stuttgart and at a Porsche dealership, both times it took about 4-5 hours, and they charge you about 6 hours.

As for the gearbox, there may be light at the end of the tunnel. When I was in Stuttgart before X-mas, they told me that GETRAG (who make the gearbox) will start selling reconditioned gearboxes soon, which will make replacement a lot cheaper.

There is the book labor rate and then how long it takes an experienced mechanic to do the work.

I watched Peter take everything out for a seal replacement on a Boxster. Once the flywheel was out and I could see the leak from the seal I had to leave. I was less than 2 hours.
