it looks like the early 99 turbo has only 4 bolts on the compressor housing instead of 5 on the late 99's.
id say a swivel too, if not the turbo is fairly easy to get off.
there is instructions on how to remove it on riffraffdiesel.com
if you take the turbo out use channel locks and hold the exhaust wheel and use a ratchet
if you are able to remove the compressor housing you can use an impact to get the old wheel off, a few quick blasts usually loosens it off. then hand thread it on and tighten it with a few more blasts.
oh and use anti-sieze on all the turbo bolts just in case,if you have to remove the turbo that is.
and if u take the turbo off i would change the pedestal orings as well.
