Up-Pipe Gasket Replacement Instructions?

My up-pipe donut gaskets have finally statred leaking and I really dont have the extra $$ at this time to buy the IH Up-Pipes. I bought the ford donut gaskets and new bolts. Are there any step by step instructions to just replacing the gaskets?
Thanks

not really. You'll want to remove the turbo, even though, some people have managed to replace with it in tack. Drop the d/s up pipe and snorkel the p/s and collector out the top..(with turbo removed). Replace the donuts and install with collector and p/s hooked up looseley to collector. Then feed d/s pipe up in and bolt it up giving it some play to re-align turbo to collector. Once aligned, snug turbo up, but not tight, then connect collector to turbo with clamp. Now connect uppipes to manifolds and pipes to collector. The p/s top bolts are a *****. You'll have to use a 1/4in rachet and a swivel to get them bolts. d/s are cake. Once tight, tighten down turbo.

If I remove the turbo, are there any gaskets and seals I need to have before starting?

Good call.
And since the turbo is coming out anyways, clean up the intercooler pipes, do a ccv mod, foil delete, WW2 install, maybe EBPV delete?
Make a weekend out of it.

If you can pull your down pipe out, it is (to me) a really easy job. I've only done it once and I wouldn't be afraid to tackle it again. I didn't take the turbo out. I took the downpipe out and worked from under the truck. I think the forums make it sound scarier then it is. But be warned, I had to replace my Y pipe/manifold off the turbo because every single bolt broke in it.

It did take an afternoon to do the job. But really, once the pipe is out, you're golden

Unless you have an aftermarket exhaust, no way your removing the DP without cutting it, if stock.
