wastegate problems

ok i know how it happened the guy that had the truck before me hauled heavy oversized loads all the wind resistance caused the waste gate to work full time. the turbine half of the turbos hole for the wastegate valve is wallowed out, so the wastegate valve fits loosely and there for is impossible to close (no boost untill about 3000rpms). so anyway i want to replace the turbine housing but i cant figure out how to get the daggum thing apart anyone have advice or a breakdown any help would be appreciated. thanks in advance.
