K guys, do you have any tips or tricks for getting the stock downpipe off the turbo? I have been trying forever to get the bolts to loosen up and I have had no luck

i just did this a few weeks ago and i ended up putting a bunch of 1/2 in extenders together to make about 2 feet long and use a torque wrench from underneath the truck.

I did both of mine with a long extension from under the truck, too. Some oil is a good idea to help protect the threads. I put anti-seize compound on the threads before I put them back together.

Soak the bolts with PB Blaster and let it sit. Find a breaker bar to help get leverage.

soak the bolts in some pb blaster overnight and then again before you loosen em, and get about 3 feet of extensions and do it underneath the truck with a big ole breaker bar and if that don't work try an impact gun and it should come right out, it was probably the least problematic thing on my truck:lol3:
