Up pipe is out, thanks to Ronnie's encouragement. That seemed to give just enough room to allow disconnection of the intake pipe for the turbo.

Its loose, but not out, and probably cannot be taken out while motor is in the car, although I will try. I don't need it out, just out of the way.

Next item is to get the heater air hose on that side off, or at least the upper end disconnected.

I think the oil leak is either: Small oil fitting on the timing chain cover, or turbo oil line feed hose. (actually the hose part of a steel/hose combination line that goes to the turbo).

There is oil on the under side of the oil line hose, and oil pooled in nooks and crannies at the top of the chain cover underneath the hose. Also under the fitting on the chain cover.

Its possible the oil is leaking down from above, but I see no fittings or hoses in the area above that could provide a source. I'll get a picture of the area and post it.
