I think the easiest way is to take both turbos out with the manifold.

Nah, just take off the rear turbo, leave the exhaust housing. Seperate it at the turrbine housing and just pull the turbo cartridge. Should take a first timer 3-4 hours to get the #2 turbo out.

What more is the lift going to help? by the way how did you end up pulling the turbo? the whole assembly or just the turbo?

I got my #2 turbo out WITHOUT taking the exhaust manifold off. Larry from Sound Performance was right. THANKS LARRY! I might take the number #1 off as well as a precautionary measure. I know that 90% of the time its the #2 turbo but I'd rather be safe then sorry. Also the #1 is SO much easier to get to. I figure I will have it off in an hours tops. Thanks again Larry I honestly think your method is much easier then taking out the manifold.


PS-It took me 7hours to get the #2 turbo out but as Larry said it could be done in 3-4 hours. I spent 2 hours taking off stuff that I didn't need to take off and figuring out what I was suppose to do took another hour. I honestly believe the #2 could be taken off in 3-4 hours.

Very true...

as I was the one helping him pull the #2. Man it was sooo much fun....lol....j/k......but yes it can be done in 3-4 hours if we had to do it again. Later!

Glad I could help. If we try hard we can get the turbo out in less than 3 hours but it helps that we have done this job about 30 times in the last few years.

I got my #1 turbo out in 45mins. That is of course with all the other stuff out of the way, since I had taken the #2 turbo out yesterday.

Hey y'all (kevin and 94supratt) i have to replace my stock turboes (again) if i don't go single so you think you could show me how to just replace the 2nd... i don't wanna have to remove the whole assembly again... it's a SERIOUS PITA. I'm in florida now (college), but i live in hampton. Maybe by x-mas break i'll have decided whether to put in an sp-63 or put another stocker in. Thanks.
