Up pipes- turbo bolts HELP!

Ok, I have 124000 miles on my 08 ' and have a new down pipe , exhost ,tuner, air intake and egr delete kit in the mail. so I decided to do this very leeky pass up pipe (in cab) while I have all this out. Well all has been good so far but the bolts on the turbo, I got one out, but the bottom and upper drivers side I cant seem to get! Is their any tips for this, Im a bit fustrated and dont want to strip any or have to pull the trans if I can help it. I serched this 8 pages in and that had too many incompleets. Any help please!

Update: up pipe off! What a PITA!!!! had to remove trans to do it, Sorry! had a bad bolt @ the turbo but not a bad idea anyway. Im getting my full EGR delete tomarrow and waiting for the exhost. I installed the AFE stage two air box. With the trans removed I can get to alot of parts easly. Ive worked on alot of PSD's and removed alot of trans, was relitivly easy for me but just time comuming. Pics to come when finnished!

Wow , trans removal. I considered it but it didn't seem all that easy to me to get to all the bellhousing bolts. And I bet the trans/ transfer case are HEAVY.

I had bought a while back a low profile trans jack @ harbor freight for 55.00, was a good investment. Easy to use. Its a litte time consuming about an hour but not bad. I was ready,for a fluid and fulter change anyway. The bell housing bolts are easy, its the flywheel ones can be a PITA. Not that bad. I didnt do the cab cus that seemed worse to me and the means to get the dam thing in the air. Got the Egr coolers off last night now for the kit.

I'm ready to see your pics when you get it all buttoned up! Sounds like a lot of work, but it will be well worth it. It's always nice to do it yourself so that you KNOW it was done right! And it definitely saves a bundle of money $$
