See post #6 on this thread for how I did it from above (without removing trans):
removal of turbo... grrrrrrr - Powerstroke Nation

Unfortunately the GM up-pipe donuts (recommended by some people) did not seal worth a dang, so I had to repeat the excercise a month later. That time I chose to pull the trans since I had a leaking torque converter seal. It was definitely easier to do it with the trans out, but I would have to say the overall effort was lower when doing it from the top side. Unless you have access to a lift to make pulling the trans easier!

Unfortunately I'll have my trans out AGAIN next week, but this time to install a billet torque converter. I also need to seal some intake plenum leaks, will probably do the driver's side when I do the trans (since it looks nearly impossible without pulling the turbo AGAIN, and I might as well have easy access to the up-pipe connection when I do it).
