oh and a flex head fine tooth ratchet. i dont pull the turbo out but sometimes i do when i cant fandangle them out the right way theyre hefty but 2 hold down bolts, the 17mm banjo bolts remove the horse shoe with fuel cooler from the drivers side valve cover just pull the hold down nuts off the valve cover bolt studs remove the whole thing as an assembly pop the vgt actuator rod off. theyre tricky to get out. pry bar on each side of the turbos and wiggle them up and down they pop lose and from there you have to tilt the turbos just right to clear the oil filter and fuel filter housing.
You will need the turbo gasket kit and dont let the high pressure and low pressure turbos separate. and when you set the turbos back in on the pedestal make sure you put the orange dildo looking one in the turbo first and replace the green o ring on the oil drain tube. if the dowel sticks in the turbo pop it out and clean it with a wire wheel and put high temp anti seize on the down and pop it back into the pedestal.
