I know I saw a good one on another site, I just can't remember where. I really need to start archiving these things for future reference!

alright I removed the passenger side inner fender well. I can get to the bottom two bolts easily. The upper two take about 24" extension to be able to reach it from below. I have given up on trying to remove this till I do a turbo back. Unless Im missing a trick on removal of the up pipe this is pretty difficult to get to.

Isnt the only way to remove the OE downpipe is to cut it, or remove the Tranny crossmember? Have you blocked off your EGR cooler?

no i havent yet, you could try unbolting yur up pipe from the turbo an moving it out of the way, so you dont have yto remove it completely
