any more details?

Did you get the band clamp off yet? Down pipe should just break free from the turbo once you have the band clamp off.

I used a flat head screwdriver and a small hammer to get the clamp off and then the exhaust just came off on its own.

PB blaster is your BEST friend for any bolts or clamps under that hood.

might help to completely loosen the clamp.
then cut the old exhaust off and wiggle/violently shake the downpipe from underneath.
that should help it pop off.

and solvents are a god send as well.
