Replacing up pipe gaskets

Mine are due to be swapped out, I talked with another local dude who has an early 99 with a 6 speed and he said he's gonna have to drop the trans to get to the passenger side bolts. I've never heard of anyone having to do that before, is he just or am I up for a bigger job than I thought?

It's def a big job from what I hear. You may be able to get to them if you can drop the down pipe. Also heard you can take out the wheel well lining and get to it better. I am going to re-do my pedestal o-rings at the same time and will plan to pull turbo. Keep us posted on how it goes. I need to know too!

I changed mine in my early 99 with a 6speed and all I had to do is pull the turbo and drop the down pipe. Every bolt can be gotten by using extensions and I did the job in about 4 hours. It is extensive and be sure to soak the bolts with a good penatrating lube the day before to let it soak and be very carefull when taking the bolts out of the y on the turbo. The threads are natorious for pulling out when you pull the bolts out. You should be able to find a thread on doing this step by step on here.

^^^^ What he said. I would never even consider dropping the trans just to change the up pipe donuts. It is too easy to pull the turbo and drop the down pipe.

Thanks guys. Dropping the down pipe will be a bit of a chore since my exhaust is welded in, but I was planning on pulling the turbo to do this anyway to make it easier. I already have the turbo O-rings and the Chevy 350 exhaust gaskets, now all I need is about 1/2 day to get 'er done.
