Turbo bolt problem

Hey guys. First thanks for the site. You have been a wealth of information. I have a 2005 Kingranch that I bought with 60K on the clock. It now has 95 and Im getting around to the EGR and oil cooler.

Got everything out on my way to the turbo but ran into a problem. First Ive heard of one of the bolts sometimes missing. My passenger side front bolt is. I got the rear bolt out on the first try and it was very easy. The drivers side front bolt however is a bear. It is not the normal 10mm like Ive seen on all the write-ups. Its much larger. Closer to 3/4. Cant get a shallow socket on it because of the intake. Is this an aftermarket turbo? It says Garret on the side. Any ideas why it doesn't have the normal 10mm bolts?

Best guess is the bolts were not replaced with the correct ones. There is a good chance the new larger head bolt is not metric and was forced in.

Got it out. 17mm. Used a 4in ratcheting wrench. Picked up three new 10mm. Don't know where it came from but it fit I guess. Got everything tore down but managed to strip one of the up pipe bolts changing it out for the new one that came with the kit. Oil cooler housing is clean just waiting to get back in.
Thanks for the help!!
