Turbo Removal Procedure W/ Tips

Now I know some know how to pull the turbo but I do realized there are new owners out there too. Pulling the turbo is one of the first steps for many repairs, intake removal, hpop removal, egr cooler etc.. So with what there is to work with out there video wise not being so great I figured a good reference video was in order. I think this one turned out well along with a few tips, hope this help those wary of pulling the turbo. The 6.0L is actually very easy to work on once you get used to it.

this is exactly what i needed to find I have a chance to tear my turbo out tomorrow.
I plan to do it in town with what I can bring with me. so trying to get a good batch of tools together and try to make it happen. from this video it shouldnt be that bad. but it will be the first time i have been the one to take out the turbo since i got it.
thanks for the video!

I really like whatever video software you use. Most videos I have such a slow connection the video has to stop and reload several times. Yours I can watch straight thru.

Good job. I have to add that turbo is kinda heavy he makes it look like nuthin when he pulls it out. Nice to be young and strong. Unfortuneately I am neither anymore. LOL

I'd like to know how you get to the back 2 turbo pedestal bolts that hold it to the block after you've already got the turbo installed.

I use a 10mm ratchet wrench to get to them, just try to put the wrench on it, it's kinda hard but you need to put your arms into the engine

Are you talking about the turbo bolts that mount the turbo to pedestal? If so, I'm referring to the bolts that hold the pedestal to the block.

I think it's almost impossible to get to them with the turbo installed, you are supposed to take the turbo out to remove the pedestal, or tighten them.

Exactly, that's why I'm wondering how he did it in his video. I've had turbos in and out of these 6.0's a bunch and I i don't see how he managed that.
