when you mark the turbo clamp make sure you make a mark for the direction of the clamp also. This is so if by chance the turbo leaks a little after reassembly the clamp can be loosened and retightened on the truck.
If you are doing an oil cooler then the intake will have to come off. Best thing I've found is to take the FICM harness all the way out of the vehicle while being very careful not to damage the injector connectors poking out of the cylinder heads. With the intake and EGR cooler out of the way the high pressure pump cover will come right off with little effort. Just take out the two 8mm heat shield bolts attached to the rear of the cover
As for the oil cooler, meticulously clean the engine valley around the cooler cover so as not to get any dirt and debri down into the high pressure pump reservoir. You cannot get anything down in there or you risk damaging the IPR. It helps to have a suction gun of some sort to remove the oil under the cooler and clean anything out before pulling the old cooler screen.
