Angry Limited access to turbo bolts!

I'm having a real hard time putting in the 2 rear bolts to clamp the turbo to the manifold, there's virtually no access to get the bolts in.

I've removed the OEM downpipe bracket which fixed to the tranny box as this was getting in the way of me manouvering everything.

1st i tried fitting the turbo to the manifold & then fixing the downpipe to it... no go.
Then i tried fixing the turbo to the downpipe & then fixing the turbo to the manifold. This is better, but i'm still having issues locating & tightening down the 2 rear bolts!

Is there an easier way???

with the greddy downpipe, I didn't have any problem getting the downpipe on the turbo last.

with the turbotony downpipe, i was not able to get the tonypipe on the turbo with the turbo and mani in place. i had to put the turbo on the mani, hang the mani off the head studs (but not bolt it down), then hook up the downpipe to the turbo. tightened the downpipe to the turbo, then put the nuts on the mani studs and snugged it down. hooked up the downpipe to the cat last.

Woo Hoo!!! I now have a Greddy Eunos Roadster!!

After romoving the bracket which fixes onto the tranny it gave me enough room to bolt the downpipe up to the turbo. And it all works a treat now!

I have such a big smile on my face right now
