Hi
Does anyone know how to re attach the exhaust manifolds whilst the cylunder heads are still attached to the block
The engine manual shows bolting them to the heads before attaching heads to block but having done bottom end overhaul I am desperately trying to avoid pulling the heads.
if the turbos are still bolted to manifold you cannot get access to all of the manifold bolts
if you take turbo off first I dont think you can get access to rear bolts to re secure it once manifold it attached
Any thoughts greatly appreciated,

Turbos says 3200 says...ouch. In Leftpondia, so no help here...
