Turbo removal

Do I have to remove the intake spider, or can I pull the turbo out sideways?

I had to pull the intake and it still barely came out and I almost cut the valve cover wires when I did mine.

And whoever thought it was funny to torque the turbo bolts down to 500 ft lbs should be kicked in the nads.

ya you gotta pull the intake spyder out.
it was probably heat and time that torqued your bolts down haha
i felt the same way when i had to pull my turbo to do up pipes.
i put some anti seize on the bolts so when i need to pull the trubo again it will come out .

Pull the intake spyder, remove the turbo hold down bolts, twist the turbo a little, and pull it right out. It is not very hard to do at all.
