Which is easiest for changing up pipes?

Need to change my up pipes soon...my question is, is it easier to get to the up pipes by pulling the turbo or pulling the transmission?

Did mine by pulling the turbo. Followed this procedure.

Welcome to Pocket's International UP-Pipe Replacement Web Page

I pulled the passenger side fender liner to get to bolts at manifold.

Just did mine last weekend. I used the same guide linked above and removed the turbo. It was a major pain, and I am still sore from laying on the engine trying to get the Y to line up with the turbo. The only way you are going to avoid pulling the turbo or trans is if you pull the motor or cab. If you decide to pull the turbo, get some new orings for the turbo, manifold and ebp valve. You might also think about new boots since you will have most of them off.

If you are equipped to pull the trans and lift the truck, it would probably be easier than pulling the turbo.

I did mine without removing either I did have to remove the down pipe and passenger side inner wheel well though. Then used long extension and a wobble socket.
