Hey guys, Ive been battling my truck today, I got a good deal on a turbo off ebay that only "has" 15k miles sense rebuild, look a hell of a lot better then mine, and I figured I would swap them out, but so far its been a nightmare.

That is the tutorial I am trying to follow, I have a few problems, I am having an awful time getting the EBPV bolts out, the easy to access one was my first attack,note I sprayed everything down in PB blaster a few days before I attempted any of this. Make a long story short, I spend a good HOUR on this one little 8mm bolt, I could tell it was going to strip, I went easy on it tapped it with pressure and did everything I could and It finally stripped, I said screw it and figured I would try the next one. That one felt exactly the same so I gave up while I was still ahead, I dont belive these will come out, maybe If i heat them? is that what im going to have to do?
Second problem, I do NOT belive that you can get the drivers side lower uppipe(were the manifolds hook to the turbo) off with a universal, I cant for the life of me get it on there straight, and I call BS, what am i doing wrong?
everything is pretty much a battle, I think my problem is everything is by Nature a PITA to get on and undo, but my stuff is rusty ontop of that.
I got the two forward pedistool bolts out and havn't even attempted the back ones, I dout that will go well..
Im lost, and basically at a standstill....how am i going to get that stupid 12 point 8mm stripped bolt out...wth...
