I would say 30 minutes or less. I've never done one, but it shouldn't take long.

Relocating your evap canister can take twice that long. Have some extra vacuum line on hand.

Plan on a couple hours for a first-timer with the right tools and materials, taking your time.

Placement of evap is key to the amount of time.
