Ok so I'm trying to remove my turbo to rebuild it. I can not get the the bolt out to save my butt. Been working on the truck for close to 8 hours and it has me hung up. I found it, just can't get on it a good way. Broke a craftsman swivel and a wobble 6" extension. I have had it and Need help. Almost ready to burn the truck to the ground. I will never do this again.
All I can say Doug is keep at it. I used a craftsman swivel and a short socket, with MANY extensions and adaptors up to 1/2 inch drive and broke it loose. Wish I could be more help. If I were you I'd consider deleting that ebpv crap off the pedestal once its off, makes turbo work easy. I did mine and putting the turbo on was so nice without having to mess with that bolt.
Good luck man.

Here is a pick of the offending bolt for those of you whom search like I did and not find a picture of where the little 8!5747648949111111 is. I looked for an entire day before actually tying onto the right one.
