I have VX Holden 5.7
How long would it take to replace the water pump on the vehicle?

2hrs. If its been some years since its has a coolant flush and replace I would do that while the pump was off, so allow a bit more time for that.

Header tank & hoses
Hours
Remove and Install Header/expansion tank 0.30
Remove and Install Radiator top hose 0.20
Remove and Install Radiator bottom hose 0.30
Remove and Install Header/expansion tank hose 0.20
you have to also check pulleys for noise and seals for leaks and fans for play all stuff usually not covered under work times provided and fix whats wrong as you go also.
so i would sday expect 3h charge time to 4 with testdrive and coolant seal checks etc.

this should be your belt routing. that alone be 30 minutes to refit and recheck.

I will add that my post is based on actual experience, not someone who does not know what a VX 5.7 actually is or has never worked on one. Good luck with it.
