N55 Turbo removal - Top tips

Hi there

I installed my Pure Stage 1 recently and want to share a few tips that hopefully will make this less painful for others. There are guides out there, but I find them very rudimentary and somewhat useless.

Take your time and clear out everything around the turbo, it will give much needed room to work and save some frustration later.

We spend A LOT of time trying to remove this, but I dont really think its necessary - wait and see if needed.

PS: Regarding the use of the screwdrivers - this is meant for the v-clamp between DP and exhaust...
