Changing exhaust housing?

I know, I'm full of questions tonight. Anyway, is there anything special I need to know mechanically speaking before I attempt to change a turbine housing on a brand new GT38R from the 1.0 housing to the 1.15? I know about needing additional/different parts. But I have yet to have a turbo apart and I just want to make sure it won't drop a bearing out on the gound, or screw something up if I don't do it just right. Thanks.

If it is like the ATS housing, the only issue is that little clip on the
actuator arm for the waste gate.... Get a bunch of them, took me
5 of them flinging off before I got one clipped in.

Other than that dont drop any of the screws, they
will get lost in the mess on top of the engine..

Use a 5/16 or 8mm 12pt wrench and remove the 4 bolts holding the exhaust housing to the center section... With a dead blow hammer or rubber mallet give the exhaust housing a few taps and it should fall off. Install the 1.15 exhaust housing and tighten the bolts back down.

Install the outlet adapter and your on your way...

That will not happen if you pull the turbo...
