Default how many days for DIA editorial?

How many days of DIA edit (incl. M&E and ADR prep) would you calculate for a 90 mins. movie (cinema, big $$$)?
I've been taking whatever they were paying me for, basically anything starting from 2 weeks, but now they're asking me how much I want. First time for everything, and always tricky because if I go to high, they'll hire that guy who does it in 5 days on his iPhone.
Excluding preparation, assembly, conforming and paperwork, I usually manage to do around 4 mins (PT 9) to 6 mins (PT 10 ) per day, depending on the material. John Purcell suggests 2 weeks / reel which sounds extremely comfortable. Just wanted to check back with you what you think might be reasonable to ask for.

I depends so much on the case. Are you only editing or also cleaning? Usually for me it would be around 20 days, sometimes less, sometimes 30 is not enough.

6 weeks if they are willing to pay, 1 week if they have no money

On my last TV-series I spend 5 days for a 30m episode.
So about 6m / day.

Not a movie dialog but good to compare anyway.

In my experience, totally program dependent. And maybe even more important, how organized are they?

You say big$$ but how are their logs/scripts/camera reports? How easy is it to search for and find alt takes? Where do they exist?(file based or on tape)
Can make it easy or a dreadful PITA!
