How the hell do you get a wrench on that damn bolt? It's tucked way in the back. Any tips? :(

MUHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Welcome to the club. I had to remove the battery, remove the intake pipe from the airbox, bend the oil line that runs in front of the bolt outta the way (careful, you only need to move it a little bit), then snake my arm underneath the turbo and wrench it from behind. If you don't have small hands, kidnap someone who does and make them do it for you.

if you take off the heatshield and wastegate, then bend the line slightly and you will be able to get a regualar ratchet on it easily.

My bud touchin kotton put his on in about 20 minutes. Or he was just saying that to tell me how easy it was. Pm him and ask. I think it had something to do about a closed end rachet wrench.

10mm gear wrench is the easiest way. If you don't have them get em they are great. Sears had them on sale last week not sure if they still are or not but never know. Totally worth it and one of my favorite tools as well.

Unbolting the oil line gives you more room to work with. Its still a major pain in the ass.
don't take out the battery, but do disconnect the intake and unbolting the oil line. the us a racheting wrench... not a socket wrench.... 10MM racheting wrench is the key... it always u to keep the closed end side on the bolt at all time!!!

P.S.
Mopar instructions for instalation sux!!! :readclose

i did mine by reaching under the turbo and exhasut manifold and came up from underneth with a regular wrench. It worked from me because i have freakishly long arms so others might not be so lucky.

Now that you have the first two bolts loose, carefully rotate the stock surge valve clockwise a bit. That frees up a little more room.

I did mine the hard way...I reached around under the exhaust manifold and with an open ended 10mm turned then flipped then turned...etc. It is the hard long way but I didn't like the idea of bending the oil line.

go on the passange side w/your 10mm ratchet wrench and stick your hand UNDER the turbo and have your other hand free to stick the wrench on the turbo...thats what I did and once you get it loose its a snap...have fun putting the BOP on tho...make sure to use a good amount of RTV Sealant, otherwise make your own gasket...or prepare for boost leaks!

Do it the right way, remove the oil line and your problem goes away.
