If the booze wouldnt have been involved and we would have wanted to finish in X amount of time. I would say it could have been up and running in 6 hours easy. But then what fun would that be

Oh boy..if you keep this up.. you'll hypothetically have it swapped into the car in about 25 minutes..

I think the 8 hours was a reasonable pace. We didn't try to rush or set any records. Even took time out for a late dinner of Taco Bell.
