Yes but I am able to cheat [2] 4 ton shop jacks and 6 ton jack stands a concrete floor and a good transmission jack. I would pull the tranny back and that gave room to easyly reach all bolts. Spray liberaly with penetrant remove bolts and upper clamp.

When reinstalling hook up upperclamp first and leave manifold bolts loose tighten them last after clamp and flange are perfectly aligned and tightened clamp. Finish tighten manifold bolts. This allows wiggle room to align flange properly.

Pull the turbo, unhook passenger side up pipe from y-pipe, remove collector bolts from drivers side up pipe/manifold connection and pull out from the top. Just did this on my truck.

Which y pipe did y'all use? I have found the stock one an eBay store and then there are a few others out there. Where did y'all get yours?

There's only one gasket. It's the one between the passenger side up pipe and the y-pipe. I got it from Ford.

just make sure you leave all connections loose before you get that turbo flange mated and clamped.
