Early 99 Turbo, Do I need to remove for wheel replacement?
Need to replace the wheel in my turbo. The wheel looks like it was used as a wood chipper, but there isn't any shaft play to cause the damage. It seems like the bottom screw for the compressor housing is not reachable without removing the turbo from the engine. Am I correct on this?? Its the early 99 turbo that has only 4 screws. This is my first time doing turbo work on a 7.3.
