another whicked wheel question

so i watched the video on installing the whicked wheel, and in the video he uses and impact gun to tighten the turbo down, and he says that it will over come the exhaust side and allow you tighten it. my question is how do you tighten it down if you arent using an impact gun?

I had the turbo out and the exhaust outlet off, so I just grabbed the spindle with vice-grips and took it off with a socket, and used the torque wrench to put the new one on.

I have heard people report unhooking the down pipe and sticking a screwdriver in the turbine to keep it from spinning, (for in-truck instal) but I personally would NOT recommend doing that.... don't want to damage the fins or anything.

I doubt it. I know mine was VERY tight, had to put the vice-grips on a couple times before I got them on tight enough to hold.

Don't need torqued down much, just a little past snug. If it clears the housing it'll spin itself tight due to the direction of the threads.

i have also heard that you need to use a 1/2in gun to spin it on and off. is that true? or will a 3/8 work fine?
