any tips for separating the compressor housing from the turbo?
Thanks! I had not ever seen ANY of an IHI bb turbo...thus, I tore it open!

I had tried once before to get the compressor housing off...and I think perhaps I was just too much of a panzy. After I took the bolts off the back, a few swift whacks with a 3lb sledge knocked it loose, and I gave it some love taps to finesse it free. (I was careful not to damage the wheel!)

Haha, thanks! Should be done soon... I need to get it balanced this week.

****, I should have already assembled it so I can bring it to the turbo shop tomorrow! doh!
