1 remove downpipe
2 loosen up pipes, on manifold and on bottom of turbo
3. 2 12mm nuts holding the drain line to the block. must remove driver up pipe prior to gettting drainline off
remove feed line from center of turbo on top.
3 17mm bolts holding the turbo down to the block, their on their tight, grab a buddy,

all the boost clamps etc mouthpiece

It makes it much easier if you get them out of the way, I've done it both ways but removing them is much easier and keeps you safe from bending it accidentally.
