Does he have an 03 pedistal to install it on?

If not, I would get one. I don't like the idea of only using 2 of the 3 bolts to mount the turbo.

Or you could remove the 05 pedistal, make an L bracket and use the 05 Pedistal.

Then just take the old one off and put the new one in it's place. Also, if he doesn't have an EGR delete, now would be the time to do it while you have access to it.

Depending on the year and strategy he may or may not need a tuner to turn the EGR off and keep the CEL from coming on. Best idea is to get a programmer on it anyway to do away with it .
