When I installed my WW I did not remove the turbo. Or the valve cover, I only took off the CCV cover. I will tell you that you will have a very hard time trying to get the E-clip off the waste gate arm if you try to do it with the turbo in. I wasnt able to get it off, so I took the 2 8mm bolts(i think they are 8mm) out that hold the WG to the compressor housing and was able to work things around and get it off.
Hope this helps man.

Ok...cool,I read a thread somewhere that one member said he had to remove his drivers side valve cover to get the turbo housing off.Ive also thought about ordering an o-ring set from Guzzle and just remove the turbo and replace all the o-rings at the same time I put my stock comp. wheel back in,anyway,well see huh?

Yea, some people remove it, some dont. But I dont think you should have to if you have to right tools for it. It wouldnt hurt to replace the o-rings while you're at it, I did not bother with that, I was just very careful not to damage them, b/c i've got plans for a bigger turbo in the next couple of months. Hope it goes good man.

I pulled the turbo when I did my wicked wheel and replaced the rings. It wasn't too bad. I had help though.
