you should invest in a top side creeper, it will save your chest knees and back from doing these projects.
Yeah tell me about, I learned all the hard way too. When I first did my EGR delete I had the same thing, extreme leak on the turbo downtube. I ended breaking the mormen clamp and read up a little. Loosen everything on the manifold up pipes and turbo clamp. Then lightly snug the turbo to the pedestal. Then crawl underneath and put some high temp silicon on the up pipes and hand snug those 4 bolts. THen climb back up and line up the downpipe to the turbo and tighten the clamp. Then go back underneath and torque out the up pipes, alternating from one side to the other. Then go back up and final tighten the turbo and clamp.
Its no fun when you do the EGR delete and then 13 months down the road you have to replace the oil cooler, lol that was me. Trust me on that top side creeper.
