Arrow Renault Laguna II - Phase 1 - Engines - DIY turbo swap on a DCi (turbo failure)

It seems Im the latest person to add my name to the ever-growing list of DCi turbo failures. My 52 plate 1.9 DCi Laguna (105bhp) with 61k on the clock has blown its oil seals and is forcing oil into the intercooler. My local Renault deal has quoted 1600 (inc VAT + fitting) for a new turbo and intercooler.

Im considering attempting the repair myself. Has anyone whos done this before got any advice? How long should I expect it to take? Also any tips regarding the running in period?
