turbo->manifold bolts

Anyone have suggestions on getting out the bolts that are between the turbo and the manifold? the ones closer to the block?

I usually just break them. Put a closed-end wrench on the turbo side and let it jamb against something and use a 1/2" drive ratchet on the bolt head. Slip a length of pipe on the ratchet if you need more force. Inevitably, they'll likely break. I've also just gotten them apart enough to get a recip saw in there to cut the heads off. I always replace them with stainless so I can get them off easier in the future.

Yeah and if that fails just remove the manifold with the turbo.Wouldnt hurt to put new gasket and lock nuts on the manifold.
