I was trying to get my wastegate off last weekend and the wastegate flange snapped off in the process. This meant I had to strip everything off back to the crossover to get the merge pipe off and repair welded.

Removing the turbo will be big fun I just took mine off. The toughest part is the back 13 mm nut on the oil inlet and the back nuts and bolts on the turbo flange.

Take your time and don't get frustrated and start throwing tools at your fenders.

In the future, use a penetrant like Kroil or PB Blaster.
It's ALOT easier if you use allen bolts on the turbo's oil inlet and outlet lines instead of regular bolts.
An "L" shaped allen wrench for the top ones and a 3/8" drive long allen wrench with a the little ball on the end for the bottom ones.
They don't need to be real tight either.
