Ok I have searched for about an hour and cant seem to find a how to write up or book time for removal/install of the stock evo 8 turbo. Can anyone point me to the thread that I caint seem to find? Thanks
I can't seem to find one either. Heres some basics though. First remove oil and water feed lines and block them off to prevent leaking, make sure to keep the turbo clean. To remove the turbo unbolt downpipe from o2 housing and remove the exhaust manifold with the turbo attached. It is then easy to unbolt the turbo from the manifold and o2 housing. Repeat for installation. Its not indepth but its a start. Others chime in for anything I missed. Hope this helps.
Found my service manual. Heres the steps for turbo removal.
Front Under Cover
Air Intake Pipe
Downpipe (Unbolt leave hanging)
Exhaust Manifold Cover
Front O2 Sensor
Turbo Heat Protector
Turbo Water Pipe Feed Line
Turbo Water Pipe Return Line
Turbo Oil Feed Line
Turbo Oil Return Line
Exhaust Manifold (With turbo attached)
Yeah when op first posted I search evom and I couldn't find a definitive write up so so if you follow the list above you'll be fine, it is from the factory service manual so the steps are correct if you need the torque specs let me know i'll post them.
