i fitted metal exhaust manifold gaskets while changing my turbos but its blowing slightly, is there a way to tighten the manifold nuts without removing the turbo's ? (R32 GTR)

Well, judging by the tight space when i swapped my turbo's, i'd take a guess that they gotta come back off mate... :(

Nightmare..

Unless anyone else knows different?

single turbo - you can get to most nuts but the twins will have to come off !

You can get on all of the manifold to head bolts of the front turbo by removing the air filter pipes and power steering pump and bracket.You will only get to a few of the rear turbo nuts.
