Please Pray for Matt P's Truck

Matt P's truck is currently in surgery right now. He is replacing his stock turbo
for a D-66.

The problem is his bolts are stuck and some are stripping out.

Please pray that he can finally get that truck back together.

Can't he just grind the heads off the bolts, pull the turbo, then use a vice-grips to pull the bolts?

I believe the turbo is bolted down to a pedestal isnt it? Grinding off the heads would make it impossible to remove

Im not sure. If you could grind the heads off you could slide the turbo up and then unthread the remains of the bolt.
