1/2 hour-2 depends how fast you work. v clamp at the exhaust inlet and outlet, hose clamp on the cac tube, one wire harness on bottom of pedestal and I think 3 10mm bolts not too hard at all. The only thing that may fight is if the bolts on the v clamps are rusted if they come loose take a pry bar and hammer and hit v section of the clamp to knock it loose. Good luck

I can usually have my turbo in hand in 30-45 mins. The pita is the v band clamp. Work under the edge of it to get it loose but don't damage it!

i have a 02 and its the same thing.

take off the breather on top of the drivers side valve cover.
pull clamps off of exhust/up tubes/intake/
jar them loose with a long pry bar and hammer. tap them in the gap they will pop loose but you will still have to pry on them a bit if they are stuck
two 13mm bolts on top of the turbo to pull it off the pedistol.

you gonna have to wrestle it out of there. not too hard overall.

HARDEST PART IS try remove that V clamp on exhaust side. End use air hammer to knock out clamp off. That was 00 F350 with 230K miles of rusty.

I really hope you aren't think about swap new compressor wheel and slap on it instead rebuilt.
