Re: pull turbo to pull head?

To get the heads off you need to unbolt any accessories (alternator etc) that bolt on to the head.
Pull the turbo.
Unbolt where the exhaust manifolds bolt to the uppipes.
Disconnect the UVC wiring.
Pull the injectors so you don't damage the nozzle when pulling the head off.
Disconnect the fuel lines at the heads.
Disconnect the HPOil lines at the heads.
Unbolt the heads.

Re: pull turbo to pull head?

If it was my truck I'd just pull the whole motor out then you have more room to work with. Also check the rods in the cyl(s) that got any coolant in them.

You don't need to pull the turbo, but you will need to take the rockers and pushrods out, as well as the injectors.

After you get the heads off is when I would take the intake plenums and manifolds off.

It was more of a pain to pull the heads out then it was just to pull the entire motor out...
