turbo and pedestal, dummy rail plugs

Hey guys, starting the egr delete on my 06'. Is it necessary to remove the turbo and its pedestal when removing the intake manifold?...doing this in cab. I have the studs and gaskets for the heads but not sure if i want to go that far in cab. right now just trying to do the egr delete and replace the dummy plugs on the oil rails. Another question, do the new dummy plugs need to be soaked in oil before installing?
any information would be greatly appreciated

yes turbo and pedistal need to be removed to get intake off. just coat the orings with fresh oil before installing the dummy plugs.

If your gonna stud the heads in cab good luck pulling them all the way out!! youll have to remove the a/c box in order to get the passenger side ones out, and for the drivers side your gonna have to jack up the back of the engine to get the back bolts out because they will hit the cab. I pull the engines when i delete the egr and stud the heads. I honestly feel that it's easier and no u dont have to pull the cab off to pull the engine out despite what ford tells you, you just pull off the turbo and the up pipes and u can remove it. and when u take off the ficm remove the brackets as well and the engine will come right out
