2013 Volvo 780 with a d13 engine
Truck was towed to dealer. They said VGT actuator is seized, so need a complete turbo kit, also exhaust manifold is starting to leak.
Since truck has 760k miles not gonna argue if could have removed and replace actuator only.
So since turbo is going to be off. I gave the ok for both turbo and manifold.
I realize they work by book hours, but my question is.
1) If they dont dont have any major problems. How long should this actually take (not book time)
2) If done separately how long would each job take in actual time not book hours.
I helped another driver replace his turbo in a truck stop parking lot once. So I have an idea how long that alone takes in actual (not book ) time
