Rear turbo bolts won't come off!
I'm trying to remove my turbo (to replace o-rings and also to R/R fuel pump).
Got every single bolt off just fine with PB Blaster, hammer, and patience, except, the two rear turbo pedestal bolts, and the bolts connecting the up-pipes to the adapter. They are stuck on there good. The bolt heads have already rusted down to 9.5mm, so a 10mm 12-point wrench is just rounding them off. I can slam a 3/8" 6=point onto them though.
But, no matter how much I pound them, or how much PB Blaster I put on, they're not coming off.
Should I just give up and attack it with an angle grinder? Is there any other way to get the #@(%& things off?
