Hi..there..Im Rob, A fully certified vehicle technician in the UK and will be assisting you with your question today.
Yes these vans are notoriously difficult and quite ackward to work on certainly when it comes to the turbo,clutch etc..id say 9hrs is about average..to be honest id expect that van to be at least a 2 day work to the job to carry it out..that would inc obviously the clearing the intercooler or replacement..in fact the average cost is about £1600*
Yeah you need to consider to possibility of bolts snapping or siezed certainly so when its the exhaust/turbo manifold bolts..so thats need to be taken into account..alot of time depends on the garage and their expertise/tools etc..which i cant really comment on..but like i mention above 2 day MAX job in the garage is about right,so long as they have all the parts.new oil feed line,decent replacement turbo, clearing out intercooler if need be..and full oil and filter change
