Intake Removal Question

I did a search on the site and found many threads about removing intake but For some reason when I click on links, it goes nowhere. So forgive me for asking this as I'm sure it has been covered many times.

I am looking to remove my intake manifold while I have everything apart on the front of the motor. To me it looks like I could remove it without touching the turbo. Am I missing anything? I want to keep this as simple as possible and since the turbo and EGR cooler are new, I don't want to mess with that area. The intake is caked inside with carbon and removing it will make putting the front cover back on easier.

Thanks.

You didn't mention the year of your truck

The earlier models had a circular intake manifold -- part went under the turbo
Later models have the U shaped intake -- so maybe can be removed with turbo in place
the front bolts on the EGT cooler can be a pain -- some take that out in one piece

Be sure to clean around the intake first -- junk can fall into the ports when you lift it off
ya know, like that 10 mm socket that is always missing out of the set

the tube has several vids showing intake removal -- go there to search

In my defense, I was unsupervised

General note:
For all those wanting a premium silicone sealer Kubota 70000-73764 is the best your gonna find. This is a hybrid gray silicone that uses solvent rather than acid to start the curing reaction, this makes it safe for aluminum and and any surface that involves coolant.

Truck is a 2006. I found a PDF step by step at The Diesel Garage website. I think I'll give it a shot.

I would say just pull the turbo, it's not hard. I had everything off to do a HPOP and oil cooler change and with an okay set of hand tools and SrMastertech and Dieseltechron videos for guidance I had no problems with teardown or install.
