Look where it's at... turbo has to come out as you have to get the manifold off the head.

One member of the forum was considering a shortcut, do not know if it will work. Cut thru the flexible joint, remove nuts on front exhaust manifold and remove. Remove studs that held manifold. Slot new studs to accept flat screwdriver. Install inner and outer flex joint parts and clamps. Hold exhaust manifold against head, screw in studs. Replace nuts.
