Removing up pipe...?

How do I remove the up pipe on my 6.0 without removing the turbo? I'm wanting to replace it with the egr delete pipe that doesn't have the y section in it. That or weld it shut and take care of the scoop inside. Need to know how to get it out though first.

You have to get the turbo out of the way so that you can get to the two bolts that connect the up-pipe to the y-pipe. You also need to address the EGR cooler, so the turbo has to get out of the way anyway.

I've got a spool plug in where the egr valve goes blocking off any possibility of anything going into the intake. I want the cooler left on in case I have to put the stock up pipe back in for smog laws.

if you remove the downpipe you should be able to get to the EGR up-pipe pretty easily without taking out the turbo. If you have the factory downpipe you'll have to remove the crossmember though

Take the turbo out. Going to be a whole lot easier and faster to get this done (in the driveway).
Once you get the existing up-pipe off and in your hands, use a dremel to cut the scoop out and weld a plug in the port that the egr cooler connects to. Reinstall it and forget about it.

Critique me here... remove alternator, remove intake hose to turbo, pull clips and wire loom up, zip tie to windshield wiper out of the way, loosen clamps that connect turbo to exhaust pipes, remove oil feed line, unplug VGT connector clip, remove turbo hold down bolts, take screwdriver style pry bar and pry up to break the turbo free from the drain line on the bottom. Lift up and roll it out.

What did I forget? (I've done this before when I did my STC fitting replacement but it's been 3 years ago)

Getting turbo off is easy, getting the y pipe lined back up is the tricky part doing it that way.

My dad and I done it by him laying over the engine and me laying underneath with a long extension set and him holding the bolts while I loosened the nuts. I'll add to the downpipe thing, now is a great time to add a larger exhaust if you wish, the downpipe has to come out doing it this way.

If you want to know how to take the turbo out "by the book," click the egr/oil cooler link in my signature line. That will take you to a thread that has a pdf file attached entitled "turbo removal" that will walk you through it step by step.
