Default Td04 install

Can I install turbos from the top of the engine?I dont have a lift and it appears easier for me or do I have to go underneath the car?

I've only done the front and many things I simply couldn't get to from the top. Put it up on stands and go to town, make sure you have new gaskets before you take anything off though.

With respect to the rear turbo, the oil drain lines are on the oil pan and the rear one has to be accessed from below. Also some of the rear turbo exhaust bolts require the rear heat shield to be removed and the heat shield has a lower rear bolt that is a real pain to access, I think that has to be done from underneath.
With respect to the front turbo, I believe that the oil drain lines and turbo exhaust bolts have to be done from underneath.
I have heard of guys changing only the cold side of the turbo and leaving the oil lines attached to the oil pan and the hot side of the turbo attached to the exhaust system, but I've not tried that myself.
Are you changing both turbo's entirely? or can you leave the hot side and oil lines attached?

I planned on just leaving the oil lines intact if I could. I know you are supposed to swap them but I should be ok.

The front oil drain line has to come out with the turbo as the bolts at the turbo side are blocked by the front motor mount bracket. This requires removing the drain line from the pan from under the car. Also, the rear turbo has one bolt that goes in from the bottom that needs to be accessed from below with a long extension.

good point striker3! Shawn's video points that out too, and the front turbo is actually easier to remove than the rear turbo lol

in my experience engine gasket kits do not include the gasket that sits between the pre-catalytic converter and the downpipe. you may be able to reuse the existing gasket, if it's not torn up. otherwise you can take the old one to your local auto parts store and see if they can match it up.

What other underneath car gaskets do I need? Do I need to unbolt the headers to get to the rear turbo? Thnx
