Turbo Removal HELP

Just got power back here in michigan. We got hit with a tornado like storm with 80MPH winds. I had a few days off from work so decided to finally install my wicked wheel by pulling the turbo. Everything went great and i followed directions to a TEE. Y pipe out, unbolted the two top bolts on the turbo etc. Just when i though it would come right out - It was stuck like i was missing about 5 bolts or somthing. I re read the directions and i didnt miss a thing. The turbo is just plain ole stuck!!!! The truck has 288,000 on it. Possibly just cooked on? Tried hitting it with a hammer (with show rag to pad turbo). No luck.

You do have the clamp at the turbine inlet at the rear removed, correct?

Took both sides completely off just to make sure. It was not budging. Charge side and waste side

Ya i had the entire y Pipe out. I checked all around the turbo and nothing was still clamped to it. It was at the point where it should have come right out. I think its just cooked on. Is that possible?

Which 2 clamps are you referring to? The CAC or IC boots? I believe Kris is talking about the clamp between the turbo and the cab. You have to loosen it up, but I don't think it comes off until the turbo is removed.

01PS is starting off with a positive reputation.
Should be 8 clamps to loosen or remove and 2 pedestal bolts. 4 clamps to remove the "x" pipe (2 intercooler and 2 plenum). 1 turbo to "x" pipe. 1 turbo to downpipe. 1 turbo to intake. 1 turbo to exhaust "y" pipe collector. Just because the "y" pipe clamp bends outward does not mean it is loose. I have 125K and it took several coats of PB Blaster and a stubby screwdriver to break it loose. Good luck!

Is it loose at all, or just wont move? If it is loose, you may be stuck on the alignment pin in the back. Take a hammer and hit the exhaust collector a bit. Might let it budge a bit to make it come out.

If you're using a hammer I'd recommend a dead blow, a shop rag won't be enough to pad it. It may take a good pop from a hammer to loosen it up.
