Turbo removal question

1996 7.3 PSD 174000 miles

Last night I was messing with around with the truck and I noticed a lot of oil below the turbo in the engine valley. After a a lot of looking I found that the oil is leaking from the EBPV. I decided to pull the turbo and do the EBPV delete. After doing some searching on a few forums I found a write up on turbo removal and it said to remove the EBPV from the turbo. I got 2 of the three bolts out and on the 3rd one the bolt head stripped. My question is this, can the turbo come out with the EBPV attached? and what else, if anything do I need to do to get the turbo out with the valve attached? Also what else do I nned to replace while I have it apart to stop any more oil leaks?

Also isn't there an updated Y pipe for the OBS trucks? I figured while I had all this apart I would replace it also, at least replace the gaskets in there to stop the exhasut leak.


Thanks

I just pulled my OBS turbo for the first time a few days ago. I don't know how far you have gotten but it is a royal pain to get to some of those bolts. You should have enough room to pull the turbo with the EBPV connected, the big question is if you'll be lucky enough to be able to get to the passenger side pedestal bolt and up pipe nut. IIRC it was the pedestal bolt that made me give up and pull the EBPV. The bolt is under the inlet in the rear, the only thing I could get on it was a cheep Chinese socket with a really thin wall.

I have seen bellowed up pipes for the OBS but they are around $800.

Turbo removal question

I did the driver side lower flange bolt with a 15mm snap on 1/4 drive swivel socket on a 6 in. Extension and the pass side with a wrench and a pry bar.
