What is the easiest way to get this off? I got the one on the downpipe off but I cant get the other off on the inlet? Actually I got half of it broke free but the other side facing the driver side I cant get.

I had the same problem and ended up just cutting it off with a saws-all. The clamp is actually attached to the pipe and will not move after it's loosened up. You really have to wiggle the pipe back and forth while your pulling to get it out. It's a real pain.

the up-pipes or whatever their called dont move though. I am not talking about the down pipe but the pipe that combines from the manifolds.

For me, I've had better luck getting it off when the truck is a little warm. Maybe try some WD40, and I have a hammer and a long chisel with a blunt edge and I tap it. I haven't had bad enough problem that I've had to replace the clamp, but if worst comes to worst I've seen them on ebay for pretty cheap. That's a clamp you really want in good shape. Next time you install it put some anti seize on the inside of the clamp and some on your inlet pipe and turbo as well. You can put some on the exhaust outlet clamp that can stick in the future too.

We use these types of clamps on the anti-icing systems on the C-130's. you need to be able to pry under the bottom of the clamp, in an upward direction, then it will pop right off. upward meaning away from the parts being clamped together. they can be a pain if they have never been removed before.

Also the oil feed tube. The end that goes into the motor. Does that just pull out?

I used the hammer with the downpipe. I didn't remember how I got the other one off but I do know I destroyed it. Nor can I remember where it even was.... I did have my transmission out at that time though.

Just realized you have a 6.0 and not a 7.3 like I do...
