I doubt that you will be able to do what you say. I had great difficulty removing the turbo not due to the exhaust.

If you get stuck (which I think you will) saw through the nut & stud with a hacksaw blade and when you have the muffler off you can heat up the turbo's cast iron housing with a torch and remove the stud like I did. Don't heat the stud. I used a spring loaded speed wrench to undo it (I don't seem to have much luck with stud extractors).

As for the oil line down to the turbo I used a crowfoot wrench which you fit to a 3/8" socket set to hold the fitting and then a spanner to open the nut.


Crow




Speed



Good luck & don't give up.
