Turbo removal issues

I have a 96 obs and the turbo blew apart on me (how idk) but the truck is stock from what the past owner has told me. Now I know the 2 bolts and 2 nuts on the back of the turbo are a PITA. I got the drivers side both loose but the passanger side is a different story. I've already have a 15mm wrench cut in half and I just can't get the passanger side. Now my question is if I take it somewhere to get it pulled the rest of the way how much do you think it's going to run me?

It really depends on how long it takes the shop. I suspect they would just charge hourly for however long they have to fight the bolts. I just had my turbo off, that 15mm on the passenger side came off with the help of a 15mm swivel socket, a few step down's and a 3/4 drive 3' long ratchet. Did you try removing the EBPV first, might help you get a better angle.

Unfortunately the EBPV won't break free either. It's been soaking in pb blaster for a couple days and I have no torch to help persuade it.

I just called the closest ford dealer and he couldn't even tell me anything. Just said unless he talked to the tech he wouldn't know and just said sorry. Great customer service on their part.

So a little update I've all of the bolts out except the driver side pedestal bolt in the rear. I haven't messed with it being -14 degrees in Michigan but I can't find a replacement turbo anywhere by me that doesn't want $1200. My question is mine is a 1.10a/r on the housing side and everyone can get a .84 or a 1.15. I can get one from the junk yard for $300. If its not a 1.10 and one of the other ratios will I have a problem with it being on. Again this is completely stock truck.
