Remove the clamp that holds the Y pipe to the turbo. Then you can remove the turbo out of the way. Really no need to remove the Y pipe from the Up pipes.

It is on the exhaust side of the turbo. I just cant get the nuts off the bottom two bolts. I really need to have this running tonight, cause I need to haul a backhoe tomorrow. everything else is disconnected except the pedistal.

Remove the down pipe, remove the clamp for the exhaust Y pipe, remove the clamp for the intake Y pipe, Remove the ebpv acctuator arm, remove the waste gate, and then reomve the two bolts that hold the turbo to the pedistal.

The only thing I forgot to mention is to remove the intake off the turbo. What two nuts are you talking about.

Got the down pip, air intake, the y pipe for the intake, The waste gate, The actuator, all that. The problem is where the exhast manifolds connect together on the back of the block. There is a Y pipe back there, and that bolts onto the exhaust side of the turbo. its the 2 9/16 nuts thats that im having the problem getting to. Its a 97 with a garret turbo.

Extension with a wobble end. Perhaps a 1/2 indrive reduced to 3/8 drive. I am assuming you are having trouble breaking them lose or are you having trouble getting a wrench on them.
