Diconnect it at the turbo (v-band clamp) on edit:I forgot to say...do this last, and don't lose the o-ring.
Disconnect the IC tubes (blue or black boots)
Disconnect the intake boots going to the intake plenums (orange)
Remove wire from AIH
Remove AIH sensor (wire clip)
Remove MAP line
Remove wastegate line (red)

I think that's it. Thats all I can remember. It's easy, it comes out in a matter of minutes. Clean it up good, do a CCV reroute while youre in there to keep it clean and spray a little hairspray on the spider where the boots go on. It will help keep them from blowing off

ok figured that was mostly it. i didn't wanna do much more lol

yea i already did the ccv mod and cleaned the other IC boots AND the intercooler itself. inside and out. just didn't get to this part
now i didn't put anything on the boots when i put em back on last time. and we pulled a travel trailer for 4k miles and i'm pretty sure i was hittin boost i never hit before and they stayed on fine

Yeah you don't need to do the hairspray thing, just kind of one of those preventative maintenance things. You prolly won't push enough air with the stock turbo for it to be a problem.

A clean rag will be fine for protection if it makes you feel better.

I've blown my boots off with the stock turbo. Do the hairspray. There is no reason not to. It will take you 2 seconds and will save you a headache down the road.

I blew them off a long time before I put the injectors in. It happened after I did the foil delete mod. I pulled off both intercooler tubes to clean them.
