You will also likely have to tweak the turbo support bracket which is attached to the engine mount - vice and a hammer required, but easy to do.

You can put the overhaul parts on a turbo yourself, but there is some technique to disassembly and reassembly when dealing with breaking a compressor nut loose and retorquing it. When doing anything near an exposed compressor wheel you risk damaging it. They are very fragile.

You will also need a pair of very small internal snap ring pliers, and propane torch or heat gun. I did mine and used my elbow torque wrench, as I did not have a torque spec for the nut. I have done a few others though, so I'm used to dealing with retorquing by hand.

Takes about 2 hours to do.
