Turbos come out and get seperated.
You'll need a turbo install kit which I'm pretty sure includes the gasket you just bought.

well it turns out the the two bolts holding the turbos together were missing.

I repalced them and it still leaks but not bad or noticeable.

I do have a leak at the pass exhaust manifold flange where it meets up the the y pipe, its bad, really bad.

Those holes are to bolt on the lifting bracket used to remove/install the turbos. They are normally left empty for expansion contraction.

Yes, basically just pressed together and when bolted down they stay put.

if you take them out and seperate them and try putting them back together then you will know what holds them together! but yes those bolt holes are just for lifting brackets. i only bolt bolts in there for when i'lm lifting out the turbos without the bracket and i don't want them to split.

well i had to remove the pass side turbo to get the cracked y-pipe out and re-weld it. I also replaced the gasket between the turbos. much better now, wasnt that bad.
