ATS turbo housing, can I install myself?

Just wanted to know how long this takes and how hard this is? I have a lot of tools and do do a lot of stuff on my own but never on a diesel. It's a 2001 powerstroke. Any info on this would be great.
Thanks,
Brett

Hey Kolb it is really pretty simple & only special tool is 1/4" drive u-joint to get the lower bolts out. The bolts are 12point, I can't remember the size maybe 8mm . Marty has a video on here to install Wicked-Wheel & it has it all on there.

So probably easier than a wheel cause you don't have to change that? Just unbolt and bolt on correct?
