Nope. Drop the downpipe, and you can sit under the truck with the following tools and do it all from under there.

1/2" wrench, 10mm socket, 12" extension, use a "stubby" style ratchet for ease of maneuvering. A wobbly with one or two wraps of electrical tape to keep it from wobbling too much but will give you a good angle works great!

If you have to remove the turbo, that's not that hard either, but it's too easy not to.

The gaskets I like are from Car Quest and are part #F17250. They chevy exhaust donut gaskets. You can do it from under the truck in about an hour or pull the turbo and it takes about an hour an a half. Either way, use lots of anti-seize on everything when you put it back together. I said everything, the bolts, the gaskets, the up pipes, the flanges, everything! You will thank me later when you have to take it off for some other reason.

Personally I would get the up pipe kit for around 300 dollars and it illeminates the whole doughnut gasket.

If they break, yes you will have to remove the turbo. If you use the tools I described you can lay under the truck and do the whole thing without getting out from under the truck to get more tools. I'd include a several 2-3" extensions with that 12" one depending upon how skinny you are and how far up there you can get with your hand.

Here's a video I made.

You will have to at least remove the Y pipe that connects the up pipes to the turbo. Which to get that out yes you pretty much would have to remove the turbo.

Oh and yes be prepared for those bolts to break. I strongly suggest you get alot and I mean alot of pb blaster or some other penetrating oil.
