I consider myself the average smuck you talk about. When I did my re and re on my oil cooler and egr (Buletproof kit) I took about 18 hrs. I also cleaned my turbo while it was out and that accounts for about 2 of the hrs. This was the first time a had worked on this motor so I had minimal familiarity at best.
I was able to find all the instructions between this and the "other" forum. A large amount of the time was spent kneeling on the engine so I am glad I had good knee pads.

If you PM with your email I will send you everything I have, which I have saved on my computer at work.

For the average person to do it 10-20 hrs is pretty good. I work on these things day after day. I have it down to about 3 hours with the turbo clean. The turbo and intake have to come off, as well as the egr cooler. It is pretty easy, but make sure you take your time and dont drop anything into the intake runners on the heads, trust me its not pretty when you start it up after the repair.

Millboy, Feel free to post up your instructions here. Oh and what "other" forum? We don't discriminate since many of us are on other forums.

That sounds a little better , I am doing a turbo swap at the same time so cleaning the old won't be a factor . I consider myself to be a fairly good mechanic and will mark/label all pieces coming off for re- asssembly...
2 days was getting scary
