How long should cab on head gasket job take?

I've got an '07 6.0 and have just had the head gaskets changed for the 2nd time. The first time we deleted the EGR and changed the studs. Fitted Black Onyx gaskets and they started leaking after 5,000miles.

I had a mechanic machine the heads and install OEM head gaskets this time. How long would this normally take with the cab on?

Just to be clear you'd be using OEM Head Gaskets this time right?
