How many hours to swap a turbo on a 124?

My 124's turbo finally died at 326K mi. I am not complaining I now have a used turbo to replace it, is 4-6 hrs. a good estimate on labor?

Probably more like 1-2hours. The turbo is very out in the open on the W124.

Sounds like the quote I got for $475 is a little high then! I have just found another indy, I'll give him a call and see what he will charge. Thanks for the advice Forced.

I gave 3.5 hours labor to do the turbo on the '87 SDL.
