Name all the tools and sizes required and recommended for a turbo removal. What would speed up the process? What are some techniques for loosening some of the bolts? Give detailed information about each tool please. This is to inform me, but could also inform others doing a turbo removal for a shopping list. Give what brands you recommend, especially if its a good tool for the cost.

i bought a 3/ 8 drive 2' breaker bar 15$ from harbor freight a 12mm swivel socket and a 17 mm swivel socket i got the sockets from lowes.soak the bolts with pb blaster penetrant at least a week before. I hope your bolts arent rusty as all hell. get a pair of snap ring pliers with the removable tips.turn the tips outright and you will have a pair of plastic push clip pliers. a set of long 90 degree needle nose pliers they will help pull the spring clamps on the water hoes to the turbo. jack stands a 7/16 or 11 ratcheting wrench for your turbo downpipe clamp.

Is there a DIY on what to remove or is it just held down by the two bolts?

It's held down by 3 bolts. As well as 6 on the back connecting to the up pipes and another 2 smaller ones underneath connecting the oil drain. And the oil drain line from the top and coolant lines.
