just got my banks housing

I just got my banks turbo housing today, and it came with no instructions what so ever. Ive helped put an ATS housing on a friends truck before and I figure its the same concept. It looks likes its just 4 bolts on the flange and thats it. It came with no new bolts, but it did come with 2 different sized O rings. Has anyone installed one of these or know how to?

I put a 1.0 housing on my truck and I will tell you right now it is not a good time. With mine I had to pull the complete turbo and pedestal to be able to seperate the housing from the rest of the turbo. You will have to remove any of your intake hoses and the down pipe will have to be disconnected from the turbo. Then there is four bolts that hold the pedestal to the motor and several more that hold the housing to the Up pipes. You will learn to hate the rear bolt on the drivers side cause the actuator for the EBPV is in the way. Once you get the pedestal and the turbo pulled from the truck then you will have to remove the EBPV housing from the trubo and then you can unbolt and seperate the housing from the rest of the turbo. I would get some good penetrating oil on the bolts and housing right away. Everything will go back in just the reverse order. Also the two O rings go between the pedestal and the top of the motor. I am sure I am missing something but that is the general idea. Good Luck.

Yea I didn't figure it would be a fun job, but I'm gonna hit it with some PB blaster and let that soak for a day and hopefully that'll help loosen them bolts up.

This may help. Once you get the turbo off, just remove the turbine housing and replace it with the Banks housing.

The nicest thing about the 1.0 housing is a good chunk of the turbo lag is gone. The turbo spools up and builds boost sooner. Banks claim they will actually lower egts but I'm not sure about that.
