I royally screwed up !!!

03 195,000 egr delete, 4" turbo back exhaust. I just finished installing 8 inj, oil cooler, blue spring, cleaned turbo. Well I fired her up tonight and she sounded gooood, So I got out to admire my professional shade tree mechanicing ability. Coolant pouring off the passenger rear of engine, dummie me used the old hose connect from the oil cooler to the coolant tube that goes into the intake manifold, looked like niagra falls, I almost cried. Now I've got to take the engine back apart to replace the 3" hose. Wonder if I can do that without removing the intake manifold. Also still had exhaust leak at turbo/y pipe connection, I had loosened turbo bolts, turbo pedestal bolts and y pipe/ exh manifold bolts. The connection went together perfect but then the turbo was sitting cattywampus on the pedastal. I guess when I tightened turbo to ped bolts it pulled the connection back apart.

I feel bad for you guy. Answer.....yes you can but it.will be esier if you take off the oil filter housing. Its just 4 bolt but you need to secure the fuel line nuts with zip ties so you dont loose them. For the ezhuast you need another person and a pry bar. Will make things.a lot.easier but you should always tigheten the pedistool first before the exhuast. Then when you do get te clamps on tighten the hell out of them, back them out and the.torqe it down.

Thanks, I only had to take off alt, turbo tube and heat shield on intake, then had to take off tube housing on oil cooler cause I couldn't put enough pressure on blue hose to slide over the tube.
