Wicked Wheel Install

I started my install tonight but ran out of day light. I have the old wheel off and all my parts cleaned up. It will be back together first thing in the morning. Its a little tight getting your hands back there on some of the bolts.

I watched that video on here and it looked simple. He forgets to show the removal of the (2) 10mm nuts on the Wastegate those are a pain.

Why did you take that off? You can actually move the housing over enuff to install the wheel. At least mine did.

Sorry No vid or pics. I just got it back together. I am waiting for my local dealer to open up. I need two new orings for the CCV that goes on the valve cover. One of mine swelled up. It went together alot smoother in the day light.

dang dude you should have looked up maintains instructions on here. he shows you how to do it without taking the entire turbo off. you loosen the compressor housing and leave the wastegate attached. then peal back the housing and use a impact and zip zip zip if off and spin the wicked wheel on and just zip it once to snug it up. self tightening bolt.
oh well, hope you get er back on easily. remember to replace your o-rings.
