Having all this out makes it 100 times easier to remove the turbo. No snaking it around. Just pull forward and it's out. Remove the right bank of injector harness and fold it to the left. Unbolt the intake and keep track of where the studs are. There are 2 bolts on the front of the intake that hold the fan shroud that are 15mm. After all this is done, you can pull the intake out. I just cut the hose that goes from the oil cooler to the egr cooler. Remove the 10 10mm bolts aroound the oil cooler and use a pry bar and pry up on the oil cooler. Just remember to drain the oil before you do this. I didn't
and it made a nice mess in the valley. Now I just need to get a new oil cooler and reverse the process.
