Good luck I have not messed with the turbo on one of these. I have had to beat the clamp off rusts together.

Loosen it until you can get the "T" part of the bolt out of the clamp. Use a flat screwdriver and get it under the edge of the clamp and twist. It might take a little work but it should pop loose. You might have to do this in a couple places. The heating and cooling cycles cause the clamp to stick. It's not rusted.

okay cause i have been going at it all afternoon! the nut is completely off of the clamp its just a free clamp there with the bolt in it. but okay i will try to get under it and move it around. that is the only thing that is holding the turbo down at this point correct?

Should be as long as the 2 bolts are out and the downpipe clamp is off

It should lift right off but might take a little maneuvering to get it out.
