I just put one on my truck a month ago and what a pain. I had to do it pretty much backwards from the directions. I had to completely unbolt the up pipes from the exhaust manifolds and unbolt from the collector at the exhaust input on the turbo. Then I put the V band clamp on while on the bench, then installed on the pedestal. Then put a little grease inside the socket to hold the bolts with about 2' of extensions. Driver side was easier to get to both bolts, passenger side I removed the wheel well cover and then it was easy to get top both bolts. I think I only needed a universal adapter for one bolt.
I fought with it for about 6-8hrs by the directions and just could not get the V band clamp to line up and go on. When I did it the way mentioned above, I was done and running in 2 hr's.
