I guess your talking about the 2 nuts and 2 bolts that are used to clamp both exhaust and turbo flanges together?

I did mine by sticking a wrench on the bolt, then using a large prybar which i wedged it between the wrench and the engine... it made enough leverage to brake it free!

I used a short 15mm wrench. Then there are the bolts for the pedital that hold the turbo pedistal down... There also fun to get at.

No problem man I was just gonna say that a ratcheting/swivel wrench will be the best. Glad you got it off
