Did you post this in the right section? Is this for a 99-03 or 94-97 because the answer will vary greatly.

you don't need to in order to remove the turbo. remove the boots from the ic pipes and remove the band clamp from the y pipe to turbo housing on the front and remove the hoses and plug from the front of the y, loosten the clamps on the bottom of the y to the intake manifolds then remove the y pipe. remove the band clamp from the down pipe, up pipe y collector, and the intake tube to the air cleaner. if you have the ebpv then remove the rod from the bottom of the ebpv by pushing the retaining clip back up the rod to release it, you do NOT need to remove it, it will slide over. remove the 2 bolts that go down through the center of the turbo into the pedistal then remove the turbo. it is tight but with a little truning and twisting, and a lot of patience it will come out. since your going that far, i would remove the pedistal and replace the 2 o rings under the pedistal, that is a common leaking point on the 7.3's

spray them with penetrating oil and use a 15 mm stubby wrench to turn them out with
