It always takes longer the first time or two when you are doing something new. You are going through the learning curve of what works and what doesn't. The tricks you learn will make it faster next time you have to do similar things. I will tell you that a very diverse set of tools is your friend when working on these. A simple ratchet and wrench set will leave you wanting to commit suicide.

There wont be a next time for this. :-) Really had no issues with the turbo or intake. I can only imagine the fun of putting in the new up pipe and getting the exhaust hooked back up to the turbo.

Im down to less than 5 min. on Turbo removal. The first time was a bear cus it was way back there, so it seemed, and it was missing a couple of bolts that I spent forever looking for. The missing bolts were found next to HPOP laying in the valley. All it take is Patience.

Start of day 2.... I picked up a few specialty tools last night. I prayed to the 6.0 gods last night that i can finish this and not have to drag it to a "real" mechanic..

Status:
Turbo, egr cooler, intake, removed..

Goal today:
Change up pipe and oil cooler.
Install intake. (without dropping a glow plug retaining clip down the motor like yesterday)

Thanks for the ecouragement.

Good luck today and as PGreenSVT says it does get easier after the first time. I found long extentions and air tools to be the cats meow removing and installing the up-pipes. I bent a 1/4" long extention about 130 degrees to hold the bolts with a socket from below. Air ratchet in one hand while holding the bolt with the bent extention with the other. Easy as heck.

Just wondering, are you trying to just remove the up-pipe and not the whole y-pipe. I find it easier to remove the bolts and nuts from the y-pipe to manifold connections and remove the entire y-pipe. Change the up-pipe and replace the entire assembly instead of trying to just remove the up-pipe.

Extensions and air tools are must for sure. I made a few "custom" wrenches my self

I removed just the up pipe. Directions say to remove the Y pipe too, buts its the manifold connection i had trouble with not being able to remove my 4" exhaust out of the way. I didnt want 2 manifold connection worry with.

Up pipe is changed. New oil cooler going in now. Spending alot of time cleaning everything so it taking a while. If i get the intake, oil filter, and fuel filter housing on today, i'll be happy. Still have to install new fuel spring kit too...... Slowly but surely....
