Easy to swap exhaust housings?

I'm gonna guess it's just a matter of pulling bolts and swapping housings? Can I do this w/ the turbo on the motor, or is this gonna suck *** and make me pull the turbo?

You are best off to just pull the turbo. The worst to get at bolts hold the housing to the exhaust collector so once they are pulled it's a piece of cake.

I was looking at it an hr ago, and it looks like I can do it while in-truck?? Should I pull just the turbo or does that entire flange on the block come out with it?

The bolts on the back the hold the housing to the center section would be a night mare to get to. Like you said youve pulled tons of turbos so you should be able to get it out in 20 mins. or less and save yourself a big head ache
