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.


Here's a video of how to do the WW... similar...

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