There is a gasket between the up pipes and the turbo, I replaced mine since I was already ordering o-rings I just added that in too, not real expensive.
I don't exactly remember what size plug I used I tried looking it up and found a 20mm plug. Don't hold me to it, I do know it is exteremely close to that size though.
I replaced my pedistal with a deleted pedistal, I wouldn't like the idea of trying to tap the old pedistal, not that much material there, just my opinion though.
It really isn't too bad of a job. I pulled my turbo, took the turbo off of the pedistal, took the housing off with the flapper in it(not the whole exhaust housing, just the part the down pipe connects to), grind off the rivets(I used a torch), once you get the flapper off, pull the rod out and plug up the hole with the freeze plug. If you haven't started to pull the turbo yet, spray up the bolts where the up pipes meet the turbo. This is how I deleted mine anyway, hope it helps.
