Yep. Out of the garage and straight into the doghouse due to said hours in garage.
Quick update:
thanks to a few ideas from you all, I managed to get the two remaining barrels off. The garage smells like tortured metal and newly discovered chemical compounds from torching and quenching with Liquid Wrench.

That's the good news. The bad news is one of the studs broke off roughly even with the bottom of the flange. I will have to assess my options when I have the exchangers on the floor and can get a good look.

Next question is related to the oil tank... I removed the two bolts that retain it to the turbo, but the upper part of it just disappears up into the bowels of engine compartment. What exactly am I looking for topside, and what will I have to remove to get to it?
