What's a guy gotta do to get his turbo swapped around here??? (w/pics)

This past weekend, I decided to take a break from the 113*F heat and swap out my PowerMax for my MTW Stage 1 turbo at my buddy's cabin. It's about 85* and two hours away in Prescott, so the scene will be PERFECT! I figured we would drive up on Friday night after work and do the turbo swap first thing Saturday morning, which would leave the remainder of the day for celebrating with lots of cold beer! Well, that was a good plan…

We got everything staged for pulling the PowerMax… Yes, that box looks like it has seen better days. Thankfully, the turbo was unharmed. PS. That step from BPD is worth it's weight in GOLD... I have used it on countless jobs and before I got it, I would have bet that it wouldn't get hardly used. I now use it for almost every job on my truck.




Pausing for a photo op for the camera. PS. That’s my neighbor and also BulletProof Diesel’s newest employee. (He drives a Chevy with a Duramax…. BOOOOOO!!!!)
That pad that he’s laying on prevents your ribs from getting crushed while laying over the engine.


For those of you that followed my FICM swap, we used the same technique to put bolts in the coolant lines to prevent them from leaking and then just tucked them out of the way.



Removing some more parts to get the old turbo out.


Yes, that is the “old” style turbo feed line, which is going to be replaced by the upgraded “rigid” feed line.


All was going well, until we got to that stubborn back pedestal bolt. I felt like I was going to bend that breaker bar in half! Unfortunately, I used a 12 point socket on a 6 point bolt and it ended up getting rounded off!!! The sad part is that I KNOW better!!!


So, after cussing and swearing for the next half hour, I realize it is just not going to happen, so we decide to put it back together again.
Then, I happen to notice this. Not sure what happened here, but it looks like I have some oil on my bypass oil filter head. Gonna have to check that out once I get back into town.



After that, we hop in the truck and head over to pick up a washing machine from Home Depot and to the store to get some beer. I take it easy on the trip there and back and all went well.
So as we are enjoying our refreshing beverages, the power goes out due to a blown transformer and it stayed out for about 12 hours…

When we get back, I go online and order a set of bolt extractors so I can get that damned bolt out. Since I bought my MIL a Kindle Fire a few weeks ago for Mother’s Day, I was given 2 day shipping on it. SWEET! I can get this thing done THIS WEEKEND… So the box arrives yesterday and upon opening it, realize that it is the “old school” easy out-style… It’s designed for drilling out the bolt and then using the extractor like a reverse drill bit.

SO this morning, I bought the correct set from Amazon and it will be here next week. Besides, it’s going to be 110* this weekend and I didn’t want to swap a turbo in this heat.

In the 20+ years I have been wrenching (as a shade tree mechanic ), believe it or not, I have always been able to get the bolts/screws out without using an extractor.

Shawn, it sounds to me like that turbo is tell you something. "Don't put me in Shawn, send me to John's house". You should probably listen to it, turbos usually know what they're talking about.
