I appreciate the suggestion, it just barely clears my turbo, but i havent even gotten to that part yet. Its stuck just off the engine and wont budge. I have pryed, lifted, lowered, jacked, hoisted, pulled, pushed, wiggled. Im totally worn out and out of ideas.
I have a heated garage and the ability to do most things. Air tools, presses, jacks, parts etc. i can definitely return the favor and help with winter car service, etc. At this point, Ill freaking till you a garden in the spring if that's what it takes.
