Is turbo pedistal O-Rings DIY?

Sorry for the "newb" question but is turbo pedistal o rings easy enough for a diy'er. I am pretty good at doing most typical things on trucks, but far from a mechanic. Should I try it or just take it to the shop?

yep, diy! remove intake, unclamp i/c tubes and remove (11mm), remove red wastegate line, loosen plenum boots (8mm), loosen clamp going from turbo compressor housing to spyder(8mm), remove the plugs in the spyder and remove, loosen vband clamp on the downpipe and the up pipe collector(11mm), disconnect ebpv rod from actuator in pedistal, remove the 2 bolts holding the turbo to pedistal (13mm I believe) (a breaker bar and socket works bet here), carefully remove turbo, you will see those 2 orings, unbolt pedistal (4 bolts cant remember size), remove pedistal and you will se 2 more orings, replace those, rebolt pedistal, install 2 top orings, then put everything back!

you beat me to it. I was gonna say we have a write up on r&r'ing the turbo that would be a big help.

It is a pretty simple job.

Is there anywhere I can find a diagram or a actual picture of the engine with the parts labeled so I have something to refer to when I am following the directions?

well, i did not realize that the turbo had 4 O rings. I recently had mine out. I replaced the 2 under the turbo. I never removed the pedestal, so I guess I am ok. Dont think its leaking. I needed to fix exhaust gaskets. I definately would recommend changing all of them. I would hate to take it apart again for 2 o rings on the bottom
