It is super easy. The impact is the absolute must but honestly I went and did mine after watching YouTube. If you pay attn to all of it, you don't have to pull the valve cover to do it.

Are you going to take the Whole turbo off or Just the housing? Getting to some of the bolts on the housing can be a PITA. Thats what i did. But i like my WW

i believe there are 5 bolts. They are easy cept one in the back. And the wastegate bolts aren't the easiest either
