I left the manifolds on, just undid the 4 bolts on each and wiggled them free.
Back nut is a pain had to cut down a spanner and weld it back together.
Also took inlet mani off this week, beginning to hate the car now.lol

Just in the process of doing mine - first real time i've touched anything properly mechanically and not finding it too bad except for how slowly i'm taking it and making sure i make notes of where everything is and how it fits (thank god for a a phone with digital camera). Taking it slow and made sure i have done plenty of research.

Won't get it finished today though i'm at the manifold to turbo stage currently on the front and just having issues with the coolant line at the back which is being a pig to say the least.

Will know more next weekend when i get a bit more into it.

Well i still have skin so obviously took it too carefully lol.

Started off not to bad and got down to the first of 2 manifolds fairely quickly.

Then I struggled with the top water/coolant feed pipe for over an hour before giving up and cutting it off. Carried on then got stuck on the same feed this time at the back of the block on its bracket - nut 1 easy - nut 2 - stuck fast. Have left it as is for now but without it moved i can't get the 2nd manifold heatsheet off so i'm stook. Other than that i've attached the top row of manifold nuts all good and the manifold/turbo nuts also good.

End of the day and i'm mostly happy just a shame i didn't get the 2nd to the same stage as now it means i can't coat it with wd40 through out the next week while i await for next weekend when i can start back on her again, unless tomorrow brings some much needed good weather.

Have pics a plenty but i have no intention of using bluetooth of one at a time so you'll have to wait for now

Having looked at the bottom for of nuts on the manifold i know know when i'm going to start bleeding and swearing alot

Weathers not helping this time of year - so if your going to blow your turbos - do it in god weather (unless you have a garage you can actually use for working in lol)

I have been doing (struggling with) mine for a good few weekends now. Just managed to get the Turbos out today!

Lots of cuts and scrapes etc. There are 3 horrific nuts to take off...

2 x Exhaust Manifold Nuts (front).
1 x Nut right at the back on the rear turbo (holding the turbo to the exhaust manifold).

Do the front turbo first then the rear. I found the front won't drop down far enough to roll free of the exhaust manifold hence why people take it off. The rear turbo will drop free of the manifold just fine.

Am going to treat mine to braided hoses as the solid ones are going to be a right pain in the arse when re-fitting and the last thing I want is to have any leaks when everything is back together!...

I have been saving my gasket so am going to re-use. They were brand new around 12 months ago and I have done hardly any miles since the engine last came out
