Real easy job to do. Take all tubing loose and intake loose. Unhook your wastegate and unplug all wires and vaccum hoses. Take the downpipe flange off and you will probably have to take the entire down pipe loose from the rest of the exhaust, but not always. You will have to take the turbo off in two parts to replace both sets of o-rings so disassemble in two parts, believe me it will be easier. Take the turbo off the pedistal then take the pedistal off. Replace the o-rings and reverse procedure to install. Note, this is a great time to replace your up-pipe donuts while you are there.

Spray the up pipe clamp in advance to loosen it off the turbo.My clamp fought me tooth and nail til it finally gave way.That was the hardest part of the whole job for me.

If your going to spray the pipe clamps before hand, I heard that Kroil is the best penatrating oil out there. Liquid wrench and PB blaster are pretty good too.

I guess what I mean is take the turbo off the pedistal before trying to take the pedistal/turbo off together. It is almost impossible to take the pedistal/turbo off together in one piece.

had to use a swivel extension to get to that last pesestal bolt up next to the uppipe. it was the toughest bolt to get out because you loose torgue when using extensions. i just sprayed it with pb plaster and tried a couple times before it broke loose.

yes lining up the pipes is a bit of a problem, especially the uppipe. just be patient. And find a buddy to help, 2 sets of hands and eyes really helps out on getting that uppipe lined back up because when you are laying on top of the engine you cannot see the back of the turbo to line it up.
