i did a search but the search feature seems a little whacked.

Approximately how long will it take to remove and replace the stock twin turbos with another set of stock twin turbos?

4 hours? 8 hours?

Assuming it's being done by a mechanic that hasn't worked on a supra before.

are you sure you need to replace both? I say that because I had the front turbo go out and was able to replace it quite quickly leaving alot of stuff in the car. I did a pretty nice writeup on the replacement too. Just search under my name.

Agree to that. The first time is PITA!:( The engine bay around the stockers is kinda designed that narrow spaced for like japanese mini hands;)
If I remember it correctly it took me even longer than 10 hours to do the whole job. But I wasn´t doing it in a hurry.

So you did a writeup on replacing just the #1? Was it MUCH easier? You werent making any boost at all on the #1 or spooling slow or what were the symptoms?
