No it should not take a tech anywhere near 5 hours to change 2 injectors. I've seen all 8 changed on a 6.0L in under 3 hours. Problem is a Ford shop is going to charge you by the book time and not actual time it takes to do the job. That's how the techs make their money... They complete their work in less time than the job calls for and they have time to tackle more work. If it actually took them 5 hours to do it, it would be more of a "break even" for them.

How long it takes them and their billing hours are two different things... Are the two injectors on the same side?
