    Hi gang! I am jamming to get my baby moose pump injectors and rust built turbo off of Diego. I will get them off of course! Just wondering if there is a definitive or best order in which to proceed? Thanks!

    I like to pull the fuel system apart last, least likely to get contaminated that way when working on other things. For the turbo I just pull the two bolts out of the oil drain piece that bolts to the back of the intake, and pull the whole up pipe, turbo assembly out the top, you’ve gotta remove the oil feed and disconnect the downpipe first, but you will have plenty of room to remove those with the turbo out of the way. Rest of the turbo parts I remove from below the truck

    Damn. That sounds way easier than trying to drop the turbo on top of the stand and getting all the crap to line up, and reach the bolts on the bottom.

    That's how I installed it. Taking it apart should be easy peasy...
    Unless the up pipe won't separate from the Y...
