Tighten down the wastegate before installing it, it ships really loose.

A air hammer with a 18" long bit, works great to knock the clamp loose from the up-pipes, saves a lot of time

That is exactly what I did. I got to the point of not caring if I ruined the clamp I would have just picked up another one, but I managed to not kill it with the air hammer I just pulled my 3 month old remaned turbo off yesterday and it took me 36 minutes to remove it (15 minutes just fighting that clamp again!)

tools needed off the top of my head
11mm deep for the clamps on the turbo boots and down pipe
8mm for CCV block piece and smaller hose clamps on the intake spyder
13mm for the 2 bolts holding the turbo itself
pliers to slide the tab over for the EBPV rod
Hope and a Prayer for the up pipe V-Band clamp!
