If you have problem with it, have someone with relatively small hand to do it for you.

If your car is old and you decide to use air tools, be sure not to use too much torque in freeing up uppipe/turbo and downpipe/turbo bolts. Too much force will result studs to come off free. I had this problem on two studs.
FWIW when i do it, i usually put the oil return hose on the hardline connected to the turbo with the clamps positioned how i want them, then when you set the turbo down, and line up the hose, its own weight pops it on the hardline on the block..
