Grab a small flat screwdriver a hammer and get it in between the flanges and LIGHTLY pry them apart..

That is if you already took the clamp off of the connection.

The flanges are the same as the turbo to exhuast connection.

i slid a small bar behind the block under the y-pipe and pried the pipe back away from the turbo.

Then the trick is to cuss and grunt until it comes off the pedestal

When you are putting the turbo back on... Do not put that back bolt in, it is not required and MANY guys are running their trucks without that one bolt.

two front bolts and two exhuast flanges is plenty of stuff holding that sucker down in place!
