TURBO REMOVAL HELP

I am about to remove my TURBO, to either replace it with another one or tear mine apart and clean it. My question is, how many bolts hold it down? Is there a picture some where that will show me what the base of the TURBO looks like so I remove the right bolts. I'm thinking I want to leave the pedistal in the truck.

There are 3 mounting bolts that hold it to the pedestal. Take the black push pins out of the cowl panel that hold the plastic wire loom in place. You need to remove the up pipe clamp, exhaust downpipe clamp, passenger side intercooler tube, oil fill tube from passenger side valve cover and reinstall the oil fill cap only, removed black air intake tube that connects to turbo, removed oil supply line and the 3 mounting bolts that hold turbo to pedestal. Work the turbo back and forth and raise up. You will have to turn it a little sideways and play around but it will come out. Hope that helps out a little.

Start by removing your air cleaner as per the instructions illustrated in this link below:

Diesel Technician Society

Next, remove the hot side CAC tube by loosening the rubber hose clamps at the CAC end and the turbo end using your 11mm or 7/16" deep socket with the approriate extension and driver. Next remove the oil supply tube to the turbo, using your 10mm wrench for the top two bolts to the turbo and 8mm socket to remove the one bolt securing the other end to the oil cooler base. Remove the two 8mm bolts that secure the coolant degas bottle to the cowl. Remove the three 10mm bolts securing the MAP sensor and bracket to the heater box on the passenger side of the engine compartment. Remove all the plastic push plugs securing the wiring harness to the cowl, taking care not to damage them. CAREFULLY, route the harness over the wiper cowling and secure to the wiper arm using a bungee cord. Next, using your 11mm or 7/16" deep socket, remove the exhaust marmon clamps that secure the downpipe and up-pipe to the turbo. Spray LOTS of penetrating fluid onto the clamps. Break the clamps free. Disconnect the two-wire VGT electrical connector to the VGT solenoid. Remove the three 10mm bolts that secure the turbo to the pedestal. CAREFULLY, pry the turbo off the pedestal and finesse the turbo out over the top of the alternator. To disassemble the turbo follow the instructions in the link below:

The wriiten posts are correct. The pictures are not the 6.0L engine and turbo as you probably already know. Once you get to the turbo and have disconnected the intake, exhaust, CAC pipes, the VGT electrical plug and both sides of the oil feed there are 3 bolts, all on the hot section of the turbo, one mounted vertically to the turbo base, and the other 2 horizontally at the lower sides of the hot section where they meet the turbo base. Once those are removed the oil return will pull out from the bottom of the turbo while you wiggle the turbo up; it is held in place only by an O-ring. V-band clamps are 11mm deep socket, bolts are 10mm. I can't remember if the oil supply tube is 8mm or 10mm at the base.

The part in red is not correct for an actual 03 turbo and pedestal. All the bolts are horizontal.
