new vnt turbo and stainless lines just arrived (thanks fwdperformance), and my 89csx arrives tomorrow (i'll take lots of pics) anyway it has a blown turbo and i want to swap it asap. Would like to do it without removing the head. Does anyone have a step by step write up? or a shop manual? much appreciated

No need to pull the head, you'll need a 15 MM box wrench a set of crows feet with extensions. Remove the T/B for excess and if you like remove the frt eng. mount so you can tilt the motor forward ( I don't myself ). I've replaced turbos on P,G + L bodies WITHOUT pulling the head in much less time + less cost than you think. I just can't understand why people think it's easier to pull the head.:bang head

it would all depend on where you live or where the car came from, if those exhaust studs and nuts are rusted good, you wont get it off without pulling the head. here in MI. i've had trouble getting the manifolds off a head while the head was already off, a few times i have started with a 10mm socket and worked my way down to a 8mm socket and a hammer to get it off.

i'm in california. the car has been here all its life. It's been sitting in storage with a blown turbo for the last few years. It's #226 and it's a recaro car as well. When the car is started it runs rough and a ton of blue smoke comes out the back. I bought a new vnt, but am wondering, do the oil returns ever get clogged on these and cause problems?
