Can the owner of an experimental airplane perform the IFR installation and logbook entries of the IFD440?

It depends.  If the owner is unsure, the answer is probably no.  I would advise the owner to contact the local FSDO to be sure he has all of the proper certifications before starting.

Not following you. Can anyone follow the instructions in your installation manual and still properly check/test/and record all logbook entries in the logbook of an experimental airplane without holding an A&P or IA certificates?

5. PRIVILEGES AND LIMITATIONS. Holders of repairman certificates (experimental aircraft builder) may perform “condition inspections” on specific aircraft built by the certificate holder. Consistent with § 65.104(b), the aircraft will be identified by make, model, and serial number as shown on the repairman certificate. During the aircraft certification procedure the FAA issues operating limitations, as necessary per § 91.319, to ensure an adequate level of safety. These limitations may require that the subject aircraft be inspected annually by a repairman (experimental aircraft builder), the holder of an FAA mechanic certificate with appropriate ratings (airframe and powerplant), or an appropriately rated FAA repair station. Condition inspections will be performed in accordance with the scope and detail of part 43, appendix D. Operating limitations will also require that an appropriate entry be made in the aircraft maintenance records to show performance of this inspection. NOTE: It should be noted that the privileges and limitations
