Default gt2860rs .86AR turbine crew: how the hel do I get the bottom nutt off?

I can't get a wrench on this ****** with it in the car...do I have to pull the manifold out to get to 1 nut?

It is a hellamotherfuckingbitchcuntwhoreassrapepainfest.

I ended up taking a combo wrench, cutting it into a shorty using the box end, and by trial and error removing bits of material from the wrench handle (and the box head), with a grinder until it barely worked. It is a lot easier with the manifold out or the engine on a stand. That is why I want to go to socket head cap screws and safety wire.

this will be the last time I take the turbo hardware out. Next time it ***** up I'm dropping it off at BEGi and letting them deal with it.

Trey, go at it from the bottom. Left arm ***-deep, under the manifold, and come at it from the bottom. The DP has to be way the **** out of the way.

I still don't understand why our koni-challenge 2.0T GTIs dont' break bolts/studs or have loosening issues. Even with Randy motherfucking Pobst driving them.

I assumed you gays used the 1-piece manifold/turbine housing.

From the bottom, left arm indeed, like Sav says. I just retightened mine.
Is your nuclear loctite in yet?

I ordered some too, but it will probably be 2010 before customs clears my package...

negative because it exacerbated the problem on the VW.

Also, I managed to somehow whack my brake valve and now that's broken and leaking. Looks like my car is marooned in Little Rock...time to ship it home.

You're using good grade 8 studs, right?

whatever begi sends. Right now I'm re-evaluating reality. Maybe a v-band set-up is the way to go.

Are you breaking studs off the trubo or manifold?

From you driving the car hard, or from your huge arms busting the studs while trying to figure out how to take them off?

driving the car hard. I soaked them in penetrating oil and they still broke on the dp side. With any luck I'll penetrate you.

After what I've gone though today with more **** breaking and dealing with this crap, I think I've realized that I must go above and beyond what works for normal people and go with v-bands. Hopefully BEGi can do this in a timely fashion.

Am i really asking to much to have a turbo car that I don't have to disassemble everytime I track it? I don't mind little **** here and there, but taking the car appart incessantly, living in hotels doesn't make sense after already droping $4k on a turbo kit.

What are the chances that someone would want my manifold and dp for $600?

Fawk I really hope I don't have this problem... but with some of the things I've been through with broken fasteners.. I likely will join the ranks.
