nope its not to bad, the night before you do it, spray all bolts with the liquid wrench of your choice, let em soak overnight. take your time, and don't get pissed when it's a ***** to get to the bolts, universals are your friend. be very careful and use 6 point sockets!

Its kind of a pain, use plenty of PB blaster, and I suggest using swivel/ratcheting wrenches for the rear drivers side pedistal bolt and lower collector nuts. And also swivel sockets will come in handy. and I used a little grease to hold the new o rings on so they wouldnt slip out when I was putting the new turbo in

Manifold. As our friends down south would say, Post turbo es no bueno.

what side? drivers? passengers? just drill a hole and tap it? it seems it'd obviously have to be off the truck to clean all the metal shavings out of the manifold before they hit the turbo yes?

Just drill and tap it. Use some grease on your tap and take it a little at a time and you will catch most the shavings
