What is the best way to loosen the 4 bolts from the turbo to the exhaust manifold so you dont break them? Would you suggest any lubricants on the bolts before removal? What about a new gasket? It looks like there is one a gasket between the turbo and the manifold, do you need to replace it?

Sorry for all the questions, just need a little help!!:hyper:

Soak them in WD-40, Break Away, Liquid Wrenc, etc., overnite and hit them again when you go to take them off. They will come right off. Don't use air tools, you'll snap them off for sure!!

I soaked mine every day when I got home, while it was still hot, with penetrating oil, for about a week. They came right off.
