Post labor time for 3.7 cylinder head replacement

I am trying to find a published labor time for the cylinder head replacement on an 2007 colorado 3.7L. If anyone could help me out I thank you in advance.

I work for a company that has around 100 Colorado's and Canyon's that are mainly used off road/field work. Never thought I would say this but I WANT A 2015 WITH A DURAMAX!!!

It has a blown head gasket we were just trying ti figure out if it was worth the time. we don't have a lot in these trucks and out of 100 this is the first blown head gasket we have had. we are very hard on these trucks and the mud plugs up the radiators constantly so I was surprised to see that this was the only one that has ever blown.

Okay, gotcha. There were heads that went bad in the past. Because of that, some get a certain code and assume the head has failed. Your engine does not fit in that category...I wanted to be sure you didn't have a code and wanted to replace the head as a result.
