    not done this myself, but removing the drivers side engine mount and the dog bone mount should allow the engine to swing forward and thus provide more clearance, also the Air inlet for the cabin heater is removable and therefore provides a lot of extra room at the rear top of the engine

    Air inlets removed already I'll have to try the engine mount option i saw on here somewhere that someone said it lifts out but looks pretty impossible

    Ok so the turbo is finally off and eventually out jacked up the engine and undid the engine mount on the left handside,next job shotblast the manifold and find a tool for the odd bolts holding the turbo to the manifold some weird 16 point things.
