You could drop the trans crossmember and drop it down some if you have a 4x4 drop the front drive line. Droping the trans down some makes it alot easier to get at some of the bolts.

Re: removal of turbo... grrrrrrr

the back to on the ped you need a 10 mm 1/4 drive with u joint, the two on the flang up top 1/2 drive or a box wrench and a braker bar. if you dont need the ebpv gut it while its off ,makes it easyer to do next time.

I think you are asking about the bolts that mount the turbo to the collector? for the bottom right I use a short wrench and face offset towards the cab and use a hammer or something to hit it. For the bottom left I think I did something similar.

For the up pipe bolts you should be able to get up in there with a set of extenstions and a wobbley. To get that drivers side pipe out I had to remove the rear crossmember and lower the rear of the trans/t case to allow the pipe to come out from the bottom.

Re: removal of turbo... grrrrrrr

Here's how I got the lower nuts between the turbo and the collector housing:



I just heated & bent a 15mm box end wrench, cut it off, and welded on the cut-off end from a 3/8" drive extension. It worked great!

After much cussing, my eventual sequence of events was as follows:
1) Remove lower downpipe bolts from both sides (where they attach to the exhaust manifolds).

2) Remove turbo inlet hose and outlet Tee.

3) Remove downpipe clamp.

4) Remove EBPV housing (mine was already gutted so I didn't have to deal with the linkage rod). Definitely needed a 3/8" drive 12-pt 8mm socket for this one.

5) Remove all but the driver's side rear up-pipe to collector bolts, working from above initially with a box end wrench, eventually with a 1/4" drive socket.

6) remove top bolts and lower nuts connecting the turbo to the collector (using home-made wrench pictured above for the nuts).

7) wiggle the collector and up-pipes around, and push the collector back towards the firewall.

8) Use a 3/8" drive 10 mm swivel socket to remove the bolts holding the pedestal to the engine (you need to get to step #7 to allow the use of a 3/8" drive on the driver's side rear bolt).

9) Use a box end wrench to get at the last up-pipe to collector bolt.

10) Slide collector off of up-pipes.

A shorty box wrench and a hammer gets those flange nuts loose or tightened.

PB Blaster helps alot also.
