6.0L Turbo Removal instructions?

I have been searching and haven't found anything on the proper way to remove the turbo fro an '03 (thru '07) 6.0L. Does anyone know where I could find some instruction, say from a Ford manual in pdf or anything? I would like to see some pictures of the process before I dig in to my truck. Thanks in advance.

Look at the egr removal post in this section, under 6.0 mod. I followed these instructions today to remove turbo and intake manifold. Its a good starting point.

How long did it take you to take the turbo off? I've worked on my cars for years but this will be my first work on my truck. I was just wondering if its pretty easy or a pain in the butt. Its like 103 here in Texas every day and I really dont want to be in the heat for a long time. Thanks.

I don't remember where I saw it but do a search. There is a step by step guide on what to take off.

Thanks everyone for the great info. I tried to open the pdf and my PC sayd the file is corrupt and wont open it. I'll try on a PC at work tomorrow, unless someone has a copy of it, you could send to my email knelson454@yahoo.com. I think I'll wait until we're back down in the 90's or even 80's before I attempt to remove it. Even with cold beer, it seems like too much time out this heat. My truck wont fit in my garage so I have to do out side. Thanks again.

My truck sounds like this.

Not my truck, but sounds just like my truck. Love the Cool Duals.
