Cam Sensor Replacement

At first I thought it was just a bit of water in my gas since I let car sit for a couple days real low on gas & temps dropped into single digits overnight-- until I just happened to check the codes (CEL stays on almost always right now until I decide to replace purge solenoid) & got P0340 & P0344 as active codes.
I looked online for location of cam sensor & it looks like a 5 minute job to R&R, but my mech said the books says the time required is 1.2.

Is there a site I can download labor times so I can have an idea as to how much billable labor time is required so I can know before I go to the shop as to how long it will take to repair something?

The only reason I was going to have my mech do it is he has a nice warm garage to pull my car into & I'd have to do the repairs in open air & whatever weather Mother Nature throws at me that day.

Its a max ten minute job; on the 3.2/5 engines you may have to loosen the bracket on the front corner of the plenum and GENTLY pry up on it to get the sensor out at the last little bit, but still, 10 minute job, on any engine size.

Most shops will apply a minimum hour no matter what, or, a minimum hour of diag/test time plus whatever it takes in the book to R & R the sensor; ex, if its .2 to change the sensor, the extra hour might be for diag/test/whatever.

You can look up labor times on Mitchell or Alldata, but will have to buy a subscription.
