Well it depends on your knowledge, and the equipment you got. sadly it took me about 2-3 days. it was one HELL of a job...

Well if your going to a shop, I believe it is in the ballpark of 6 to 7 hours.

I personally checked on my 5th Gen here locally and they said it was 8 hours but he would only charge me 7. Well I still havn't taken the car in. I think I'll just do that when I pull the car down to do the timing belt in the spring.

I have a fidanza kevlar clutch and a 8 lb flywheel, I've been dying to put it in but not worth $450 to have it installed.

I changed the clutch and had the flywheel resurfaced on my 90 SI. Hard to put a time on just the clutch as I pulled the motor and tranny together, I had to do a motor swap but if I had to guess it would have taken me probably better part of two days, with only working on it for about 7 hours a day. Mind you I was by myself and I pulled the engine also. Got to love those engine lifts.
