I don't think you have to take off the turbo. Just the intake tubes and valve covers. Gaskets might not be a bad idea. I'm not sure on the torque spec.

I wouldn't just "suck" the excess oil/fuel outa the cylinders. You take a good chance at hydrolockin, and crackin a head. When i did mine i pulled the glow plugs out, put the new injectors in, tighten them down put the valve covers on (with 2 or 4 bolts). Then turned the motor over. don't worry it wont start. Do that a couple of times then put the glow plugs back in. There's a aritical about it some where around here. I'll try to find it for ya

Don't just torque them, they need to be fully seated first!!! Take a deadblow hammer and HIT them in until they change tone. Don't be afraid as they are very durable, Jon at Swamps even did a demostration with an injector solenoid and a small sledgehammer to show how tough the solenoids are.
