94-97 Turbo Removal

I am having a bear of a time getting this turbo off.

I have the 4, 10mm out of the pedestal. That sucked.

I am having trouble getting the 2, 15mm nuts off the bottom where the exhaust manifolds connect to the turbo.

I can't seem to get a wrench or socket on either one! left or right.

It's a royal pain the first time you do it. For those two lower nuts you need a swivel sockt. A regular socket with a swivel won't work. Remove the EBPV to make the passenger side easier to get to. Also before you put it back together, grind the passenger side flange at a angle right below the hole for that nut your are currently fighting. It will make it much easier to get a socket on the 10mm pedistal bolt during reassembly.

Get a 15mm wrench, cut the open end off, but leave 2-3" on the box end. The box end will fit, but won't give you much travel. Mark on the wrench where it hits, grind a notch in it, and go to town. We also added notches so a pry bar would fit.

FWIW the passenger side nut froze on my truck, and we ended up pulling the engine to get at it. I had the nut half on, half off, and it was froze solid. Whole stud ended up coming out once i was able to get a longer wrench on it. I've got 3 other collectors here, 2 are missing the same exact stud. But its the same exact threads as the bolts, so i just robbed a bolt and threw in my collector.

Do you think I could pull it off with an Extension with wobbler tip?
Thanks for the grinder tip, I noted it on my list of turbo mods.

Thanks for your help!
