Average time to install ATS housing

About how long does an ATS housing take to install? I am not a diesel mechanic be anymeans, but not too bad on the end of a wrench.

I cant find the mfr's instructions online.

I was hoping to pick one up in the next few weeks, before my next camping trip to pull the trailer.

Thanks

Not too bad really. I did the WW ATS and the CCV mod and took my IC pipes out and cleaned them and the boots thoroughly, and I REALLY took my time at 3 hours for all that.

You will need a 12 point 8mm socket and a wobbly attachment or a small box wrench to get the lower right one. That's the hardest one to get. You really could have it done in about 15-20 mins. No kidding.

Thanks southpaw,

I was told it was faster to install the housing than the wicked wheel, so I am going for the housing since it is a better fix anyway.

Thanks Again

That's because you have to remove the housing in order to do the wheel lmao.

Why do all the manufacturers of the wheels say to pull the turbo to install the wheel?
