Turbo rebuild

Are there any tricks to separate the exhaust housing from the center section? It's seized up. I used a rubber mallet and a big screwdriver through the pedestal bolt holes. I even used PB Blaster. I ain't budged yet. Turbo rebuild-imageuploadedbyag-free1359122124.326504.jpg

stupid ?, but have you removed the 4-bolts, securing it to housing? If so, i think i used a flathead to pry ever so lightly in a circular pattern, for it to pop then.

Turbo rebuild

The cup shield under the exhaust turbine, do I need to take that off for rebuild?

Unless it's cracked - no reason to take that heat shield off.
Then to get it off - usually the best way to do it will be to apply some heat then pry it off (carefully)

That BDrummonds build is a good starting point - if you need some additional pics, I have a step by step pic walk-through of my rebuild if you need it.
