Sorry I can't answer your question but why are you replacing them and are you just putting stock ones back in?

I'm putting stock ones back in. I got a good deal on them. The oil seals are dumping oil in my exhaust. I could rebuild them but for just a little more I can replace them. I have kind of high miles so new wouldn't be bad.

not totally impossible but not even close to being easy. as long as you are not totally removing the up-pipes it's possible to disconnect the rear flanges and push them out of the way. You may want to fully disconnect the EGR up-pipe and move it out of the way so you can better access the rear up-pipe bolts.

Really the hardest part is probably setting the turbos back down and properly seating both oil drains at once.

i did it about a month ago. not bad.

Pull the overflow tank off

Remove fuel collant parts

remove "u" shaped pipe from turbo

unbolt down pipe at the top and bottom

remove oil lines ontop of turbos and heat shield

remove intake parts

remove small bolts from "Y" pipes at rear of turbo "hard to do but is possible"

remove two large bolts that hold the turbos to intake

remove heavy bolts/clamps

manhandle those heavy bad boys out and your done,

took me and another guy 2 days having no idea what we were doing.
with this help it sould not be so bad for you. only hard part it the small bolts on back of turbo for the "Y" pipe.

Find your local Snap-On rep and purchase the 6.4 turbo socket. Its a 10MM thats elongated.... You wont have to remove the one pipe with this tool. I must warn you, I have broken 3 of these sockets in a row, so, use your torch to heat the area first. I suggest those welding sleeves and gloves to work in the area while its still hot.

just an idea

yeah my turbo socket is broken too. I dont even like it anyways, not even close to as good as the flyer made it out to be

I'll second the flame wrench too. up here every single turbo flange needs heated, I run a tap into all 6 holes too when I'm done

the socket is amazing, you just need the right combo, snap-on 3/8 flex head extended handle, wobble extention, and the socket it self. Of course heat.

While your there, replace the oil feed line as well as he banjo bolts... They all tend to sludge up and cause this all too common turbo failure...
